Attraction Information

Set your kids on the road to who they’ll become, or just let them have loads of fun, at Believe & Be. It’s a child-sized town where kids can play make believe on sets, in costumes and with total freedom.

Let their imaginations run wild in 90 minutes of self guided roleplay as a police officer, parent, construction worker and more. They can get glammed up at the hairdressers or find themselves on the wrong side of the law in a lineup. Self expression is encouraged but there are also extra activities to keep them busy, such as mini first aid training, arts and crafts and a library.

The youngest of professionals are kept busy in a special snug designed for pre-walkers. New parents and carers will also find this a relaxing place to meet and enjoy a cuppa at the coffee shop. Visitors must book in advance to keep groups small, plus be sure to get in touch about birthday party packages.

  • Child-sized city designed for kids to play and learn
  • Tonnes of roles to choose from as well as additional activities, like first aid
  • Designated snug for pre-walkers and a coffee shop

Great time for all!! 5 out of 5 stars

We attend last weekend as a gift play and it was brilliant! My kids love dressing up at home but this takes it one step further with rooms to role play in too! We also had a lovely coffee and cake while kids play in rooms which are all observed from coffee shop seats! 10/10 from me and we will be coming back soon.
