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 café

Just head back down the A515 towards Ashbourne and you will see the Fairways Garden Centre on your right, perfect for coffee and cake after your class, hot and cold food, families welcomed. The added bonus of gorgeous cards, gifts and toys too, need we say any more.

Closest soft play

Lunar Lift is on the Airfield Industrial park so head back down the A515 towards Ashbourne, then take the A52 Signposted back towards Derby, at the next roundabout take the 1st left and then the next right into the Industrial Estate . If you aren’t too tired after your swimming class & have energy to burn, this is sure to tire them out !

Great venue for a birthday party too
