Despite having known of Dinky Street for a long time I only managed my first visit with my 3 & 4 yr old today and I; and they, we’re not disappointed! Such a simple concept and my girls just loved it switching from being a doctor to a firefighter, from a beautician to a receptionist, baker to doing the weekly shop… and we didn’t have to put a single thing back in its place (though we did tbf!) Will most definitely be returning and its become a firm favourite for us now! Added bonus for mums and... dads is the great cafe that does coffee, cake, kids sandwich meals and pizzas! Really excellent business 👌🏼 👏🏼read more

Our 5 year old had her party at Dinky Street recently. It honestly was the easiest children's party ever! Everything is taken care of for you, and it was organised absolutely perfectly.The food room was so lovely, much better than I expected, with a picnic theme and all the food served in little baskets. Super cute! The children are entertained easily at the venue, and I enjoyed watching them all play and enjoy themselves. It was a very smooth, well organised party and I'd highly... recommend it. Thank you so much.read more

I took the kids (5+2 years) to Dinky Street this morning, they both had a great time, i don't know how booked out the session was but it was really nice and relaxed and not too many people at all. The staff were lovely and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.Kids rate it 28 out of 10 😂😂😂 Thoroughly recommend!

The concept of Dinky Street is fab, a few hours of role playing with friends is the perfect play date for a toddler, which is why we made the decision to take the 50 minute commute this afternoon. Unfortunately though, I wish we hadn’t really bothered. When arriving at Dinky Street, it was very apparent that the session was completely over booked. It was almost impossible for the children to play and use their imagination as the venue was full to the brim. Not only was this disappointing, but... it also meant for a stressful morning due to the age range of children. I really think the cut off should be 5 years old, as my daughter was pushed over numerous times by 8-9 year olds playing tag in and out of the rooms. The age range of children should be reviewed and maybe sessions should be offered for different ages to enable all children to be able to play freely. If you would like a refreshment, or something to eat whilst at Dinky Street, you have to do so in your allotted session time, which I also think is a bit of a flaw. It would make more sense for the ability to use the cafe after the children have used the facility and need to refuel. The nearest place to get something to eat would be the Tesco over the road or a small Subway Shop (not really ideal for toddlers) I’m sorry to say that I would not recommend, and feel we had a wasted trip out, which was a lot more stress than it was worth.read more

We visited dinky street today with our friends and 4 children aged 1-5 and had a really lovely time. The children loved exploring and playing in the different rooms while the adults enjoyed delicious and well priced drinks at the cafe. Will definitely be visiting again

Cannot recommend this place enough! My little boy had the best time, there’s such a wide range of toys and dress up and the staff were so friendly. We had to bribe him to leave after 2 hours! Will definitely be back x

A huge thank you to you all today. I came with my mum and 2 girls and they all loved it. My mum has dementia and watching the girls play is her favourite thing to do so her being able to watch them in such a safe and lovely environment is actually quite hard to find but today we all felt safe and had a great time. The 1.5 hour time limit was plenty for us and we’ll definitely be back.

Went here for the first time yesterday and we will definitely be back! Such a lovely, charming and interesting place for children. Well thought out with so much for the children to do. My 3 year old loved every room and really engaged in all the different role playing activities. Even my 8 month old was well entertained for a couple of hours! Didn’t get a chance to have coffee and cake but it all looked delicious. I totally recommend Dinky Street 👍 Already looking forward to returning soon!

My 4 year old son visited today and met Santa. He had the best time and was very magical. Thank you very much for making his day so special. I can see a lot of time and effort has been made to make everyone safe and your staff are always so helpful and friendly.

Had our first visit to Dinky Street and my little boy who is 2 1/2 absolutely loved it. Definitely visiting again. He loved each room and there was so much to do. Also loved the cafe so we could have a lovely hot chocolate and the baby toys for our 4 month old. Our boy didn't want to leave so we found him his in the box by the door 🤣

Visited twice this week and it was fantastic for my two and a half year old. Covid measures were done well and I felt completely safe despite initially feeling anxious about going inside anywhere. Served great snacks for little ones and adults 😊 I would definately recommend a visit!

We love dinky street. It doesn’t brake the bank even with multiple children it is still great value! The rooms are amazing with plenty to keep the children occupied and happy having fun! The cafe is cosy and clean! We have been probably around 10+ times and my girls still love going!
