Conkers – indoor and outdoor attraction

Conkers is an attraction in the National Forest. It has outdoor play areas and activities and an indoor activity centre with an environment themed learning zone and play area.

The outdoor area covers a large area, with a modern light railway to get between two areas of the site.

As well as play areas there are various nature walks, a maze and a barefoot trail.
There’s also an adventure course designed for teenagers and adults – which I enjoyed.

The indoor zone was educational and had lots of opportunities for the children to play abd there were also some craft activities, where my children made a pipe cleaner insect.

If you are feeling more adventurous they offer various outdoor pursuits, but these have an additional charge and need to be booked in advance.

It’s hard to put Conkers into a category, but it’s a fun family day out that is educational, helps keep you fit and is great fun.
