Opening Hours & Information
All year round, except 2 weeks in December
The children of (school) have been coming to Walton Firs for 3 years running. Every year they come home very excited about the activities they did and for some, the fears they faced. One of our children almost didn't come as he was terrified of the caving activity! His fear of the dark and closed spaces nearly took over. Once at the activity and with his friends, he listened to the safety talk by the instructor and was told that he didn't have to go in if he didn't want to. He went in and had a wonderful time! All of the instructors are amazing with the children.
We love bringing our children here as there is so much room for them to have fun, so much on offer for them to do and most importantly, it's safe.
