If you’re looking for things to do this February half term in Surrey then you have come to the right place. You may be looking for a lovely family friendly day out or just somewhere to go for walks or you might prefer an organised event or school holiday activities, put on especially for February half term. Read on to find out everything going on in Surrey this February half term.

When is February Half Term in Surrey?

February half term 2024 in Surrey is half way through the 2024 spring term. This year the school term dates fall so that half term is Monday 12th to Friday 16th February 2024. I think it’s the same week as neighbouring counties this year but it’s worth checking as Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire often have different half term holiday dates and your school may also tak on inset days either side too. You can always check Surrey school term dates and Surrey school holidays for the academic year 2024 on the Surrey County Council website.
