Attraction Information

Take your kids to Make Believe role play centre in Hartlepool for 90 minutes of fun in the wonderful world of pretend play. Choose one of the three daily sessions and watch your tiny adventurers explore their surroundings in a small group of kids their age. With their new friends by their side, your little ones will never want to leave!

Whatever your child decides to be for the day - a farmer, a vet, or maybe a dentist, or a police officer -  there will be plenty more different scenarios to experience in the two themed areas at the centre. You can come to Make Believe over and over again and the kids will still have something new to discover.

Make Believe is run by real parents, who know exactly what you need for a relaxing family day out. You’ll find all the necessary facilities, plus a cafe where you can unwind with a hot drink while the little ones play.

  • Fun, educational and safe play environment
  • Perfect for kids up to 8 years old
  • Lovely cafe for big people to relax in
