Flip Out is a great way to unleash that extra energy your little ones may have. It’s a child’s playground heaven, fit with a maze of trampolines, sporting activities, and soft obstacle courses.

3. Go putt-putting for a fun day out with the family in Wandsworth 

SW London has some great Putt-Putt courses, which are fun for the entire family. Our favourite courses include the ‘Putt in the park’ found in both Putney and Battersea. These 19 hole courses are so imaginative that not one hole is like the other. 

When the game is over don’t forget to pop into the café for a bite to eat and a refreshment from the wide range of available options ranging from light vegan meals to wood fire pizzas.

5. Go on an adventure at the Wimbledon mystery treasure trail

If you are looking for a fun day out, where your children can explore, be imaginative and solve puzzles, look no further. At the Wimbledon mystery treasure trails you’ll find just that. Here you will have to rely on clues hidden on monuments, landmarks and statues to direct you to your treasure.

You will be exploring most of the Wimbledon area on the 3 hour route. However it’s recommended to take your time so you can properly explore this historic area. When you finish off the trail don’t forget to stop in at the all England lawn tennis club for some snacks on the grass.
