Where Can Kids Get Active in Chester?

Chester offers a wide range of activities for all ages, but there are many attractions that provide children with a chance to burn off their excess energy. Today, we’ll look at three exciting options for family fun for residents and visitors alike.

Zippy’s Playworld

Parents seeking a safe soft play environment for little ones in Chester will find Zippy’s Playworld provides an ideal option. Designed for primary school-age children and babies, this indoor attraction offers clean fun with multiple activities to explore. The centre has a huge three-level climbing frame featuring ball pits, mazes, slides, roller squeezes, and a Tarzan-style rope swing. Other features include cubes, tubes, rope bridges and climbing walls.

The Ice Cream Farm

While it might be best know for its 50 different flavours and being the biggest parlour in the world, the Ice Cream Farm in Chester also has plenty of options for play. Kids can ride on mini tractors, take part in a round of golf at Strawberry Falls or enjoy ice-cream themed adventures on the slides of the Fun Factory. They can also explore Honeycomb Canyon, Europe’s largest indoor water and sand play area, which saw the Chester attraction earn a Guinness World Record.


With activities inspired by the magical children’s books created by author Tom Blofeld, BeWILDerwood offers endless hours of family fun. Kids can speed down super slides, investigate treehouses, swing together with their friends and siblings on giant swings, or hop onboard extra-long zip wires to enjoy breath-taking views.

Whether it’s a long weekend or the half-term holidays, consider these activities on your Chester trip.
