  • Could spend a whole day here! Such a amazing play space with loads of different things for the kids to do. Lots of space so never feels crowded and lovely outdoor play space too. Couldn’t recommend highly enough! Membership is also great value
  • Such a fantastic place for kids to explore and learn. There are so many different activities within the center that my 1.5 year old with the attention span of a gold fish is always entertained.
