Go wild at Funky Monkeys

If the weather isn’t playing ball then soft play is definitely the best option to keep little monkeys busy and active!

Funky Monkeys at New Square has a whole jungle of fun activities where children aged 8 and under can explore a jungle of climbing frames, ropes, slides and soft obstacles.

There’s also a jungle kingdom play area for their imaginations to let loose featuring Suzie’s jungle house, the jungle village shop and Mikey’s safari garage, as well as a daily programme of fun activities to get involved in including crafts, music and dance workshops.

After a hectic morning’s play there’s also a great café on site with lots of delicious and healthy options for you and the kids to recharge.
