Where to find soft play in Devon

Where to find soft play in Devon

I know all too well from when my kids were small that soft play centres are a life saver, especially on a wet day. Letting them tear around a padded room while I grabbed a moment with a hot drink was a welcome break. If you’re in need of somewhere indoors to entertain your rug rats this post shares where to find soft play in Devon.

There’s loads around so I have split them into Devon’s different areas to help you find a soft play centre near you.

I’ve also added imaginative play centres and cafes that offer immersive ways for your children to explore the world.

Please check each individual play centre’s website for prices, opening information and booking requirements as these may vary.
