Child-friendly activities near WD6

The Venue Soft Play

The Venue (Leisure Centre)
The Venue has two soft play areas that are available to the public. Customers can visit the existing underwater themed play area as well as the new area which features a twin lane bump slide, cargo nets, hanging snakes, an octopus rocker, interactive mirror, game board, ball pool and much more! An hour or two of soft play at The Venue is probably the most fun children can have while getting a really good "cardiovascular" workout. They will think of it as more like fun than exercise, but the effect is still the same - it raises the heart-rate, exercises the lungs and is good for their bodies. Children must be supervised by a parent or carer at all times. Babies under 9 months old will be admitted free, if accompanied by a paying sibling. Monday - Friday: 9:00am - 7:00pm Saturday & Sunday: 8:00am - 6:00pm Last admission to the Soft Play is one hour before closing.
