Excellent indoor activity centre for children n adults alike. Large airy old industrial building with change of use for rock climbing, exciting soft play for smaller folk, lots of sofas for adults and excellent hot coffee. A bit expensive but well worth it.

Took my two young children (8 and 6 years old) and they had a great time there whilst we had a relaxing coffee upstairs. A must do activity for children! Very friendly staff.

Yes check the website, but I think it is 5 years. They also organise children's parties ;-)
