Oxfordshire Soft Play Centres
Sprouts Soft Play Barn based at Millets Farm is the newest soft play centre in Oxfordshire, having only recently opened at the start of December 2017. It’s got all the favourite activities plus lots of extras and a great bonus for grown ups is the decent coffee and delicious food.
Snakes and Ladders is a mega soft play centre in Abingdon. There is a huge three-level climbing structure to explore as well as a separate area for Under 5s with slides and soft shapes.
Jump and Jiggle soft play in Kidington is a mini soft play in Kidlington & Gosford Leisure Centre. It has a single level area suited to pre-schoolers and is ideal if you’re looking for an easy trip out on a rainy day.
Whizz Kidz in Thame is a medium sized soft play centre with a multi-story play frame and a bouncy castle.
Hilltop Garden Store soft play barn in Ramsden is a lovely spot for younger kids. It’s relatively small but covers two levels and there’s always lots of parking.
Bicester Avenue soft play at the Wyevale Garden Centre is a small soft play with three separate age areas. The garden centre has been taken over and I haven’t been back yet to check how the soft play is now.
Soft Play Centres in Other Attractions
If you’re looking for soft play within another attraction to make a whole day out, here are some great options:
Green Dragon Eco Farm in Hogshaw has a mid sized soft play with baby, under 5 and over 5 sections in one of the barns.
Roves Farm has dark tunnels over several levels for something a bit different! Bring a torch or buy a glow stick from reception to make your way around. There is also a soft play area for the little ones, ball pits, indoor sandpit and ride on tractors.
