TAZ family activities

Family time with a difference! TAZ Family is a great opportunity to spend quality time together taking part in exciting adventurous outdoor activities.

We run activity sessions using 'challenge by choice' where each family member will be encouraged to set their own goals and achieve at their own level. We pride ourselves in high quality delivery of sessions ensuring that everyone gets the most out of their experiences and create amazing lifelong memories.

Sessions are for three hours and run with a maximum ratio of one instructor to 10 participants for water based activities and 1:12 for land based activities. There is one fixed price for the group, one group leader who takes care of the bookings (although they can bring more than one family within this group). Sessions will be arranged through bespoke enquiries and should be made to TAZcourses.enquiries@surreycc.gov.uk. Minimum age of 8 years old.

High Ashurst

Nestled in 56 acres of woodland on Box Hill, near Dorking, in the tranquil Surrey Hills 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', High Ashurst offers the perfect location for land-based activities.

Thames Young Mariners

This 25 acre site includes a 10 acre lake, alongside the River Thames, between Richmond and Kingston. Thames Young Mariners is surrounded by 200 acres of public open space, which has been designated as a local nature reserve. With both new and existing water-based activities available this is perfect for the whole family.

Henley Fort

Located on the Hog's Back high above Guildford, this Victorian Fort was built during the late 19th Century to protect London from invasion by the French; later it was used by the Home Guard in WW2 as a re-supply depot.

A range of land-based activity days are available - from the more relaxed pace to our unique Home Front WW2 living history experience.
