Chucklebutties Play and Party Centre is an Award Winning indoor soft play area with a difference: adults love it too! With views from massive windows overlooking the beautiful Derwent and Belper River Gardens, adults can sit in comfort and relax while the children play.

The award winning cafe serves mouthwatering homemade cakes, hearty meals and snacks with a healthy emphasis, as well as real coffee and looseleaf teas.

The playframe includes four slides, large football pitch, mini car track, climbs and rope bridges, and is suitable for toddlers up. A baby area is situated within the cafe so little ones can play safely with parents nearby.

It may be worth checking out Chucklebutties's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.

We do strongly suggest you contact Chucklebutties before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.

If parking is tight in the front car park, there are plenty of spaces behind the centre in the River Gardens Public Car Park (left off the A6 towards Matlock).

You can then access Chucklebutties over the mill race bridge, between the red brick mill and the river. We are a 5 minute walk from the centre of Belper (on the Derby to Matlock train line, and well-served by local and TransPeak buses). any top tips?
