From watching films at Vue to conquering climbing walls at Rock Up, dining al fresco to enjoying the Riverside Adventure Play Area, there’s something to keep the kids busy whatever the weather, said a spokeswoman.

Operators have adapted their spaces to support social distancing and ensure everyone can have fun safely.

Visitors should check directly with operators and retailers as opening times and policies may vary, and some activities need to be booked in advance.
