Fun has no age limit and there's play activities for all. Get ready for an action-packed summer of fun at Killerton. Take part in the mid-week drop-in sessions: circus skills, sports activities, and nature-based activities. With 6 different play areas to choose from. For those who want to burn off some steam, there’s frisbee golf and loose parts play to climb and build. Unleash your inner artist and get creative with arts and crafts equipment. What a performance - there’s even a mini theatre with dressing up. Head over to the nature zone to identify bugs and look for fairy houses. After all that there’s a quiet zone, time to relax with sensory light bubbles and even an outdoor library. There’s plenty of covered areas so play can continue no matter what the weather.
