In the Upper Kids Garden there are circus skills to learn, a bouncy castle, bikes and go-karts to ride, special toddler’s area and ‘Breastival’- the mother and baby chill out area.
There is also a Lower Kids Garden for the slightly older children with an insect circus, art town for them to release their inner artist, fairground rides, face painting, soft play and a sandpit for under 5’s.
Activities aren’t just confined to these areas and are scattered throughout the site so no matter where you want to go, your kids can find something close by!
