October is shaping up to be a fantastic month of family friendly activities in Ashford. Plus, with half term fast approaching, we have you covered for fun ways to entertain the kids this month.
Head to Little Land in Park Mall for some family fun! Little Land is a brand new role-play centre for little people aged six years and under.
Complete with a series of shops, cafes, a supermarket, hairdressers, vets and other recognisable high street businesses, your little ones will love role playing and exploring real life situations in a safe and stimulating environment. There is also a café and seating area for parents and carers to enjoy, as they get to sit back and relax while watching their children play.
