Attraction Information

The Splat Centre: a Shop, Play, Learn and Talk centre for children is the perfect place for family fun and learning in a safe, sociable environment. The Splat Centre plays host to a fantastic three level play frame where children can slide between floors and parents/carers can watch through the first floor viewing area. There is also a dedicated toddler area and sensory corner.

Up on the first floor you will find our fantastically decorated arts and crafts and party room and also our studio which hosts the wonderfully diverse Splat Academy: an academy offering a variety of classes, groups and sessions for babies, children and teenagers. These range from baby massage and musical tots to hip hop, cheerleading and musical theatre!
We offer a wide range of parties for all ages too and have dedicated party planner service. The Splat Shop stocks a wide range of traditional, wooden and organic toys and also a range of exclusive designer baby and children's wear by The Precious Little People Company.
We are also proud of our 'Drop and Shop'' facility offering childcare of up to 90 minutes, allowing some time out for busy parents and carers who need little 'me time'.

The Splat Centre is home to The Splat Coffee Lounge. Whilst the Splat Centre is all about the children, we haven't forgotten about our parents and carers! The Splat Coffee Lounge offers a comfortable, relaxing environment for parents and carers to sit whilst their children enjoy all the centre has to offer. The Splat Centre's menu has been developed with two key ideas in mind; affordability and good quality produce. We have a range of affordable cold and hot drinks on offer alongside a range of snacks and light bites (and some naughty but nice treats too…). Our children's menu offers a range of hot and cold meals and a ‘DIY' service for children who simply know what they like! Children can ‘DIY' it by picking out three foods from a bank of ingredients and we will use them to create a dish that is perfect for them. Our meals and snacks are made fresh on the premises by ourselves wherever possible as we feel that fresh ingredients are absolutely essential to good quality and great tasting food. To make our adult visitors feel at home, we also have free wifi on offer in the coffee lounge so feel free to bring your laptops, ipads and all that jazz and you can surf while your children play!
