Little Street, Rudgwick
Newly opened and already a hot favourite with local families this play centre is an ideal way to spend a couple of hours with your little ones.
Little Street offers ‘a high quality experience by operating predefined play sessions and keeping the numbers attending “little”’ seven days a week, with four 90 minute sessions a day starting from only £5.95 per child. The old Rudgwick Social Club has been beautifully converted into scaled-down themed rooms, each offering a different fun and creative role-play experience.
There is lots of free parking available and currently refreshments are available during the play sessions (however a proper café is set open at the end of February 2019).
Don’t delay booking your visit during holiday times at it is popular. We definitely think it is the perfect out-of-school activity for children from pre-walkers (free of charge) to 12 years old but enjoyed mostly by 12 months to 7 years of age.
Architectual Plants, Pulborough
The name might not indicate a fun time for the family but after visiting myself this winter, I think it’s a great place to take kids to get them out and about this half term.
Located on the A29, Architectural Plants is a nursery growing and selling the most incredible range of exotic plants. A huge covered area houses a lot of their stock so even in the rain and cold you can replicate the magic of the outdoors when wandering down the aisles. It is also flat, making it perfect for buggies and unsteady little feet. You really can spend a lot of time looking at the wonderful plants that will quickly capture the imagination of any child or adult. Maybe make a game out of having to find the most unusual name of an amazing looking plant.
After you’ve had your fill of the beautiful sights, head to the cosy attached café to fill up on the savoury food, hot drinks and scrumptious cakes. If the weather is up to it you could also check out the sculpture garden or have a stroll by the lake.
You will leave this place feeling calm and revitalised without having to spend money to enjoy this unique experience. However a plant may just catch your eye while you are out and tempt you to start creating your own paradise at home.
An easy fun, cheap and a little bit educational morning or afternoon out with your family is right on your doorstep and can be enjoyed whatever the weather by everyone.
