Throw a fun, hassle-free, majestic birthday celebration.


Let the kids blow off steam and race around our three-level soft play complete with toddler corner and baby zone. Sit back with a hot drink whilst they navigate slides, clamber over ropes and dive into the ball pit and work an appetite up for their birthday tea.

You can choose from either a two-hour timeslot with a reserved party area or have the entire soft play to yourselves with exclusive private hire. 

Here's how it all works…



For just £55, you can reserve your two-hour time slot and have private access to the upstairs party space for a minimum of 10 children, up to a maximum of 35. Then, all that's left to pay is the admission fee for each child on the day.

Off-peak/peak admission prices are as follows: 

Under 1s - £2.25/£3.25

Under 4s - £6.45/£7.95

4+ - £7.95/£9.25

Bring your own party food, order a takeaway, or hand over the catering to us. At a cost of £3.95 per child, we can arrange kids' meals from our café for you, consisting of a ham, cheese or jam sandwich, a packet of crisps, a piece of fruit and a small chocolate bar.

Your two-hour soft play time slot includes:

  • FREE admission for the birthday child
  • Designated party area upstairs or in our new area up by reception, just for you and your guests
  • Party tables set up for you with tablecloths, napkins and cups

  • The remaining balance plus a refundable £100 cleaning deposit is to be paid 7 days before your party.
  • Your deposit will be returned the day after the party. This usually takes 5 days to clear back into your account. In the event a party overruns or the venue is not left in an acceptable condition, then we reserve the right to retain funds accordingly.
  • The person booking the private hire always retains responsibility for all the guests and must ensure that all 'Rules of play' are adhered to throughout the hire.


How do I book a birthday party?

Contact us to check the availability of your preferred date and time. We'll then discuss your party requirements and take some details, along with a £55 party booking fee, to secure your date. The remaining balance will be due a few days before the party, but don't worry about last-minute dropouts as we'll make sure you only pay for the children that turn up.

Can I reserve a date and put my deposit down later?

We don't reserve dates and can only secure your booking with a £55 party booking fee OR 50% fee for Private hires. To ensure you get the slot you would like we recommend booking as soon as possible.

When do I need to confirm final numbers?

Exact numbers and a list of children attending is required at least 72 hours before the party takes place and no changes can be made after this. Be assured that you will only be charged for the children that turn up on the day. We will contact you in the week before the party for this information.

Do you provide entertainment or party games?

We don't provide any extra activities or entertainment; we find access to our three-floor soft play is more than enough for two hours of non-stop fun!
Are your staff available to look after the children?
You won't have a dedicated party host, but our team will greet your guests upon their arrival, inform them about the rules of play, assist throughout the session, and help you and your guests to exit at the end of the party.
Do I have to pay for siblings of invited guests?
Yes, Any siblings will need to pay entry fees like any other child attending the centre. If they are older teenage siblings - they can be included in the adult ratios and wont need to pay.
What ratio of adults to children is required?
We kindly request a limit of one adult to one child for our two-hour party package.
How do you ensure the safety of party guests?
We take our responsibility to provide a fun and safe environment for children very seriously. At the start of your party, our staff will outline the rules of play and give each child a coloured wristband to keep them safely identified as part of the party. Each child's parent/guardian is responsible for supervising them in the soft play area.
Can we take photos in your soft play?
No. To safeguard all children at Lets Explore, photography or video is not allowed without permission.
Can you cater for children with food allergies?
Please make us aware of any dietary requirements at least 72 hours before the party. We offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.
Do you have parking?
Yes, free parking is available on site on a first come, first served basis.
Can I bring my own food or order a takeaway?
Do you have a kitchen?
We do not have any kitchen facilities, places to store cakes, or heat up food.




Please note that weekends are the busiest period for our soft play. Operationally your party will still run exactly the same but the centre will most likely be at full capacity. We would suggest booking a morning slot, late afternoon or midweek to avoid the busier periods, especially if the party guests are quite young.
