Chessington What to Pack

  • CIGARETTES

    I thought i might add this info to anyone like me who is a smoker. There is nowhere in the theme park you can buy cigarettes, i did run out of them and had to go most of the day without, arrrr well i suppose it done me good

  • PACKED LUNCH

    Food and snacks at any theme park tends to work out quite expensive, so my advice would be to take your own food. Pack your self up a tasty picnic, there are loads of green areas and places in the park to sitt and have your own meal

Chessington Off The Beaten Path

  • Janani's Profile Photo

    by Janani Updated Apr 4, 2011

    If the bustling, hectic atmosphere of the theme park leaves you drained or you fancy a relaxing alternative, while the rest of the family enjoy the rides, make this your destination.

    I have had treatments done by the owner of the salon, since she was a trainee herself and have also had treatment by her staff, so has my mum and both of us agree that we have had one of the best facial massages we’ve ever experienced here. The salon is nicely decorated, very clean and everyone who works here seems very friendly and welcoming, plus the quality of the treatments seems high too.

    Products used by the salon include Decleor for facials and Jessica for manicures; these are available for retail too, so you can maintain the effects between salon visits but there is no pressure put on you to buy anything.

    Directions:
    The salon is right by the Hook roundabout, on the same road as the Shell petrol station but on the opposite side.

Chessington Favorites

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The best thing you can possably do when paying a WHOPPING 25 pounds to get in, is do everything to get your moneys worth, the best way to do this is to go on everything as often as you can, so take this good advice. Visit midd week and not on a weekend, the reason being that saterdays and sundays are Chessington's busy'st days and you can queue for anything up to 2 hours at 1 ride, week days are much better and the queues are normally very short
