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.
Birtenshaw School is close to the village of Bromley Cross, we would like to recommend Earthlings café as a lovely place to meet after the lesson. You can find more information on their Facebook page
Birtenshaw School is also close to Turton Tower which boasts a Victorian tearoom and an adventure play area for children.
