Always a favourite with the grandchildren. Compact and secure and allowing you full view of your children at all times. A good healthy menu with a good variety. Can be at times a shortage of parking.

Called here on a rainy Saturday afternoon with my 8 year old.was £4.95 to get in (about right for these places). We managed to get a table after hovering around waiting for pity from people leaving! In fairness the guy on desk had warned us there may not be tables due to how busy it was and parties.the play area... More

First time we ever visited, thought it would be ideal to knock my kids out. It was over packed, more busy than the staff could handle and there was a party too. The party was the main issue, would have been nice if it was in a separate room rather than in main seating area....food got everywhere........my kids enjoyed playing,... More

Really nice place. This play centre is a bit smaller than some I have been to but I prefer that as you can keep an eye on your children more easily. There is a separate under 4 part with soft play and a bigger over 4 climbing sift play area with ball pool and slides. There is a lot of... More

My little one is only 13 months and usually at soft play centres there isn't a lot for really littles ones- only a ball pit. But the bit for under 3s was great!!!! So much for him to do and problem solving on the walls- kept him busy for over an hour when usually he clings to me. Went on... More

Recently visited Funky town play centre after it's new refurbishment. I was really impressed especially the under 3's section which has been extended right back and lots more room. You can see children better now it's opened up more. It is very colourful and the new slide is excellent for the little ones. The stepping stones and soft play shapes... More

When it's quiet, this place is so much fun! Staff are fairly friendly, the place is usually quite clean. Some of it can be out of order sometimes which is a bit disappointing, but mostly it's been good. Their sensory room is great! The toddler section is really interactive and fun but some of it gets stuck or is a... More

Being a regular at funky town it's easy to see the consistency in cleanliness and attention to detail in making sure every child is catered for from sensory to dancing or running round like a mad thing on the play frame! The food is also great value. You do get a lot for your money and there are healthier options... More
