If you are looking for more things to do for babies and toddlers around Tunbridge Wells, then the below post might give you some inspiration. Have a great week everyone!
#1 Slap ‘n Dash at the Hawkhurst Fish Farm
There is also a lovely cafe on the Fish Farm which you could pop into after. If you have a toddler or older child, there are plenty of activities to keep them busy too – read more about it here. Oh and check out their new crafty hour session aimed at Under 11’s on Wednesdays at 4.00pm and Saturdays at 10.15am during term time.
#2 Pooh Sticks Bridge
We spent a lovely afternoon at Pooh Corner in Hartfield (check out their lovely little tearoom) and enjoyed the toddler-friendly walk that takes you down to Pooh Sticks Bridge in the heart of Pooh Land in the Ashdown Forest.
It is such a magical place and a nice way to increase a child’s interest in storybooks. Read more about our visit here.
#3 Soft Play at Minor Mania
I know not everyone is a fan of soft play but I honestly find it such a great way for my son to burn some energy and have some fun, especially on a rainy day. We tend to go during the afternoon at term-time, before the schools finish for the day and my son can spend hours running around with his friends.
We have membership to Minor Mania in Bells Yew Green, just outside Tunbridge Wells which costs £9.99 per month (for one child as Ben is currently under 12 months) for as many visits as you like. I think this is a bargain! For more info on Minor Mania, click here.
#4 Pirate Ship at Notcutts
I could easily spend an hour or two at Notcutts Tunbridge Wells – they have a nice cafe with lots of lovely things on offer, a section with small animals (and reptiles) for your little ones to have a look at and of course the outdoor pirate ship and play area for the kids to play on when you have a cuppa.
There is also a toy section so it can be a good place to pick up a present or two and a miniature ‘elf/fairy’ door just for toddlers which Harry enjoys running back and forth through. Read about our visit to Notcutts here.
#5 Royal Victoria Place
If you join the free Kids Club you are entitled to exclusive offers which are listed on their website here. Kids Club members can also hire out the little red cars which toddlers can sit in to and be pushed around the shops in. This is one of the only ways I can get Harry to go into a shop these days…..
