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!
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!
A private day nursery accepting long term bookings.
Register with Surestart for support services for local families.
Emmanuel Church – Wednesdays at 12.45pm, open to young chirdren and anyone caring for them.
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.
Starting at any point, follow the trail on the map, to learn all about Walton, we have designed our signs so you can do brass rubbings of them as you go!
Inside is the Lifeboat Bell which you can ring, with an adult present, it’s near the stained glass window that shows Jesus calming the storm.
Visit the lifeboat shop, and look out to see the new lifeboat moored at the end of the pier.
How many rides can you find on the pier?
Pick up a crabbing kit from a local shop or kiosk and try your hand at crabbing in the pools at low tide. Tip: Don’t forget to put the crabs back afterwards!
Build a sand castle on the town beach.
The Kino used to be a cinema, but now its an amusement arcade!
The Letterbox Nursery is in the old post office.
Further down the lane is the town hard where you can moor your boat. How many small wooden ‘tender’ boats are moored on here?
