Thu 27 June 2019
Keeping kids entertained can be a real challenge at the best of times, especially in the holidays and breaks from school. If you live in Worthing, West Sussex then you are quite lucky though, as there are loads of ideas of activities for Kids in Worthing and the surrounding area.
Here is a list of five things or ideas to keep your kids entertained in Worthing:
The Dome Cinema for family days out
The Dome Cinema is like stepping back in time – in a good way and the perfect option for movie lovers! First opened to the public in 1911, it’s an elegant and beautiful place to catch a movie.
It has three screens including the intimate ‘Electric Theatre’ and runs offers that other big chain cinemas do such as Meerkat Movies.
There are cheap matinee showings and special Saturday morning films for kids. And it won’t just be the kids who enjoy their visit to the Dome either – for adults, there is a reasonably cheap and well stocked bar to help you enjoy the film.
Splashpoint for kids who love water
Splashpoint is a relatively new facility in Worthing having opened in 2012. It was built at a cost of £17.9m and replaced the town’s former Aquarena swimming venue. Needless to say, it’s proven to be a great addition to Worthing’s leisure facilities with its main attraction being the state-of-the-art swimming facilities it offers.
Facilities include a six-lane 25 metre competition pool, a diving pool and an indoor leisure pool complete with flumes.
For the summer months, there is an outdoor paddling pool in which visitors can bask in the warmth of the Sussex sun. And when the kids are done swimming, the Splashpoint Café serves quality food to re energise them afterwards.
We Make Footballers for sporty kids
We Make Footballers are a coaching company who specialise in teaching football to boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 12 of all abilities.
The Worthing We Make Footballers academy has been running for nearly a year now with sessions held on a Saturday and Sunday morning.
The first session is free, so if you’ve got a football-mad child then why not take advantage of that offer and sign them up? Players of all abilities are welcome so feel free to bring along friends and siblings too!
Try the sessions out to see why We Make Footballers have such a great reputation and you might have just have found something for your kids to do every weekend from that point on.
Brooklands Go Karting
If your kids are Formula One enthusiasts rather than footballers, then Brooklands Go Karting can be the perfect way to keep them entertained for a few hours. This 290 metre long outdoor course is perfect for a complete beginner or an experienced driver – which is good news if you fancy taking the kids on yourself.
Brooklands cater for family groups and parties whereby you can take over the whole track. Or if your kids just want to learn the basics behind becoming the next Lewis Hamilton, then you can “Arrive and Drive” where you turn and pay as you go to take part against other people.
Located on the outskirts of Worthing, Roundstone Farm offers something for kids and adults on a warm summer’s day.
The main reason for visiting is that you can pick your own fruit. Kids loving doing this and you’ll be picking up healthy, homegrown produce to use in the kitchen over the coming days. By introducing your kids to a range of different fruit and vegetables in a fun environment, it may even encourage them to try foods they never have before, helping to make them healthier in the process.
It isn’t all just picking fruit either - there is a tractor ride which takes children around the farm and they even hold giant car boot sales on occasions throughout the summer.
