With the first half term of the year upon us after a (very) long January, we’ve picked some of the best looking activities in and around Bath to keep the kids occupied.
Our first pick is the newly refurbished Bath Sports and Leisure Centre on North Parade. Currently undergoing a £10 million refurbishment, some of the facilities are already open to the public. For children under 12 there is a brand new 5 storey soft play structure that allows children to safely crawl, climb and explore! There’s also an additional area for under 3’s. For those ages over 12 there’s now a 10-pin bowling alley featuring 8 fantastically LED lit lanes that provide new bowling games. Quite possibly the most exciting development to the leisure centre is the new trampoline park! With over 62 trampolines it is the largest addition to the new facilities and will allow kids of all ages to bounce the day away keeping them entertained and active!
Our second pick is the Victoria Falls Adventure Park hidden away on Royal Avenue, Victoria Park. The course features 18 wacky and wonderful holes over rushing waterways and waterfalls! It’s also fantastic value at around £5 an adult or around £16 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. Providing an old school mini golf experience with such a well maintained course, it is a fun favourite of ours. We’d suggest treating yourself to an ice cream after!

If you fancy something outside the centre of Bath our last pick, Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park, may be for you! Avon Valley boasts an impressive array of activities and attractions for you and your little ones to enjoy. This includes a large outdoor play area to climb and explore, quad bikes to ride, tractor and trailer rides and the infamous miniature ride along railway line! For the colder and wetter days there’s an indoor play area featuring drop and rainbow slides; there’s also a toddlers village for the little tikes! However, arguably the main selling point for Avon Valley is its incredible range of wildlife spread across 90 acres of land for you to see and learn about. On top of that, there’s also an incredible animal handling that offers a hands-on interactive and educational experience. If travelling by bus, you can catch the A4 Air Decker from Dorchester Street in Bath (or any stop along the route as request stops) and alight at Pixash Lane which is a 5-10 minute walk away from Avon Valley.
Of course another option is to hop-on one of our tour buses in Bath and see the city from the unique perspective of the top deck while soaking in Bath’s incredible, rich history and heritage. We have the option of a live guide or recorded commentaries aboard and when you buy a ticket, it allows you travel on both our City and our Skyline Tour for two consecutive days.
