Attraction Information

At The Castle is a wonderfully atmospheric play experience, what with being housed in a real little castle-like church! Plus there's a lot of effort gone into the theming of the play frame, which is pleasingly fort like and features knights and other figures throughout along with all the physical play equipment, so it's easy for them to get imaginative!

There are play facilities for kids up to 12 years, from the baby and toddler area up to the castle themed 3 storey play frame, they have something to suit every child's adventure of choice!

The Castle also runs dedicated toddler activity classes weekdays daily at 11am and 2pm, all activities are free with general admission and the timetable varies to include sessions such as Sign And Rhyme, Baby Coffee Morning, Toddler Activity and Music And Movement (this last for over 4s, but all the rest as young as you like!). There are also regular older activities like cooking, themed crafts and special play sessions, so keep an eye out for some extra fun!

They also naturally offer private parties here (so check ahead on Sundays particularly to ensure there's no early closure for a 'do') and seasonally, helped by the grandeur of the building, they put on a jolly good Halloween effort and Christmas Spectacular!
