Nice to meet you! Have you met our team?


We've been helping children explore, develop, play and party for over a year now here in Horley, and we truly enjoy seeing the fun and excitement on the faces of the children (and their big ones!) time and time again. 

When we decided to open a soft play centre we wanted to serve the south by offering excellent facilities for everyone that visits, and ensure that our bespoke equipment and high standards of cleanliness meant people would want to revisit and spread the word organically. This is exactly what we have achieved. 

Let's Explore was the brain child of Ben Stephenson and Stuart Duncan who were disheartened at the prospect of continually visiting under-par soft play facilities with their own family and friends.  After groaning inwardly (and audibly) at their last soft play date they put their heads together and forged a plan which can now be seen at Lets Explore. 

Stuart is Co-Founder and General Manager and has over 15 years' experience in the leisure industry, and is a hands-on dad to Persey aged 23 months.  Often found with a dustpan and brush, Stu is Lets Explore's advocate for cleanliness and takes a huge amount of pride in what the team achieve collectively.


Ben is Co-Founder and Commercial Manager, and overseas Lets Explore and the soon to be Lets Explore Day Nursery's development.  He oversaw the design and brand development for the establishment, and is excited every day about the soft play thrills and spills that await young adventurers particularly when he brings his own little one Jenson aged 21 months in for playtime.

The co-founders lead by example and employ 35 team members including Duty Managers for the café, parties and memberships, as well as a team of dedicated cleaners to ensure the establishment is pristine at all times.  We take great pride in operating one of the most hygienic soft play areas in the UK.

All staff are appointed after going through a rigorous application process and DBS checks. To find out more about the people who keep Lets Explore running smoothly, professionally and without compromise visit our team page
