Ideally the role play is suitable for 1 – 6 year olds. We have ensured that under 1’s have been provided with a safe area, with age appropriate toys. Although if your child is older, and enjoys role play, they are very welcome.


Imagination Corner want each session to be a calm and inviting experience. Therefore, the numbers will be limited to 15 children and pre book will be the main way to book a session as we are unable to guarantee there will be space if you attempt to walk in.

If you are unable to make the session you have booked we are unable to offer a refund but you can move the booking. If Imagination Corner have to cancel the session you will either be issued a full refund or the option to move to your session.


You are still welcome in for the session but we are unable to offer an extension of play.


There is a customer toilet available which has a baby changing unit, a potty and a step. Please use the nappy bin provided.
