  • Chessington World of Adventures - Look at the rollercoasters if you want to think about forces and how they are shown in each ride. The world of adventures also provide the perfect opportunity to compare species of animals/ their ideal habitats and diets.

There is so much to explore in the galleries - including your favourite dinosaurs - and there are free and low-cost activities running every day.
