We are very lucky as close to us in Chester, we have a lot of days out and activities suitable for toddlers. These are the current places we love to visit.
We live about 10 minutes away from the Zoo and are annual pass holders, we love it. We are lucky as we can pop in for an hour or 2 or spend the day there. The recent addition of Island’s means there’s lots more to discover as well. I’d definitely recommend a visit if you haven’t been.
I never really thought of the city centre as child friendly until I had Finn, but there’s plenty to do with kids. We like to go to the Wesley Centre which is a church with a café and a play area for children and toddlers. We also love Grosvenor Park and will have a picnic there if the weather is nice. Finn then loves to go on the swings and we walk down to the river and feed the ducks.
This is a lovely farm located about 15 minutes away from us. It has a petting area which Finn loves he has bottle fed a baby goat and petted a snake, owl, rabbit and a skunk. There are plenty of animals to see, a play park and a soft play area.
We love soft play centres on a rainy day. Finn is a typical toddler with plenty of energy so when we can’t get out I take him to a play centre so he can burn some energy. He loves the slides and ball pools. There are quite a few choices near us and they often do free days in term time.
The Ice Cream farm is another attraction we are lucky to live about 15 minutes drive from. I have done a full review of the Ice Cream farm Here. There’s a soft play, a park, a farm, a sand and water play, mini golf, go carts and plenty more. Not to mention the Ice Cream. I’d definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area.
