Helping you to make your special time last even longer…that’s the Puddle Ducks’ difference

We like to make life fun and easy for our Puddle Ducks customers so here are some local places we think you and your children may like. You could even meet up before or after the class with your Puddle Ducks classmates.

Closest soft play area

Jump is the biggest indoor soft play centre in England and you can get there in just a 5-10 minute drive!  Based at Cribbs Causeway, in addition to the huge inflatables and adventure play frames, there is a zone just for toddlers, and a café for mums and dads.

Closest café

The café at Blaise Castle Estate is a great place for a coffee or lunch, especially when the sun is shining as there’s a children’s play area just outside.  There’s lots more to do here including climbing the hill to the castle, visiting the lily pond, or feel free to take a picnic or fire up a BBQ.

Cribbs Causeway is only a 5-10 minute drive where there are lots more choices including M&S café, Patisserie Valerie and John Lewis.
