If you’re struggling to find ways to keep the little ones amused during the winter months then look no further.

Perfect for a rainy day, Imaginosity is highly interactive and encourages children to get active and creative. There are different exhibits all featuring different themes.

For example, the exhibit on level one is built like a small town where everything in child-sized.

Imaginosity recommends booking in advance as it often gets very busy.
