Six Fun Activities For Children In Nottingham

To make your life just a little bit easier, we’ve compiled a list of six activities and venues that we think the whole family will enjoy.

The Corner House 

The Corner House is a hive of activity and has a bounty of entertainment all under one roof - from a Cinema, to restaurants and even adventure golf!

For those British rainy days, the Funstation is a vibrant family-fun centre based in The Corner House, that’s full to the brim with activities for everyone to enjoy. It offers carnival games along with a miniature bowling alley to keep you entertained. 

Also based in The Corner House is Lost City Adventure Golf. Described as ‘Epic fun for the whole family’, it’s a great activity that immerses you into a tropical storm with two courses full of obstacles to complete. There’s even a Tiki Bar to quench your thirst along the way – adventuring the Lost City is tiring work!


National Ice Centre 

The National Ice Centre is a great activity for all ages – they even have a Tots zone for pre-schoolers to gain confidence skating around the ice. 

Take a look here to see what’s up, running and ready for you to book at the National Ice Centre.

The City Of Caves

The City Of Caves is part of the National Justice Museum. It’s a section of a hidden maze with over 500 original sandstone caves underneath Nottingham that date back to the dark ages. Book in advance here to show your children an amazing piece of history!


Nottingham Bowl 

Nottingham Bowl is a fantastic venue to take the children for a fun afternoon or evening. With 48 lanes and a large amusement arcade area, 9-hole Scrapyard crazy golf, darts, karaoke, pizzeria & licenced bar, there really is enough there to keep the whole family amused for hours! 


Logiclock Escape Rooms

Another activity that’s great for the whole family is Logiclock Escape Rooms. They have three brilliant rooms that you need to escape. By working together, the aim is to solve puzzles in order to break free. 

Logiclock is also running online escape rooms – another nice activity to complete as a family.
