Things to do with all the family in Walton

Little Explorer Trail

Welcome to the Little Explorers Trail! There are simply loads of fun things to do in and around Walton, for children of all ages! Whether you live here, or are visiting, with the help of local mums, we’ve listed them here, with something for all budgets!

Rainy Day Fun

If you can’t get outside why not check out Walton’s swimming pool with flume during public fun sessions? The shallow water area is ideal for under fives. Visit Pirate Pete’s Adventure Land, an indoor play centre, on the Pier.

Amusement arcades are on the Pier and at the Kino. Children love the rides on the pier, and Walton Pier Bowl offers tenpin bowling, along with pool tables and a coffee shop. When the sun comes out enjoy a walk along the Pier and visit the sea fishermen!

Letterbox Nursery

A private day nursery accepting long term bookings.

Rainbow/Busy Bees

Register with Surestart for support services for local families.

Sticky Fingers

Emmanuel Church – Wednesdays at 12.45pm, open to young chirdren and anyone caring for them.

For Older Children

Why not book a boat trip on the Walton backwaters to spot the seals? More outdoor fun is to be had at Walton Skateboard Park. Older children may also be interested in sailing courses or Sea Cadets, visit our website for links.
