Family activities

We offer a range of fun, accessible and free activities for families to enjoy and make precious memories together

Create memories for the whole family to treasure...

Whether it’s a trip to the cinema, arts and crafts, a family day out or ice-skating, families can come along and be safe in the knowledge that everything will be taken care of.

Charlie House ensures that each activity has appropriate parking, accessible toilet facilities, and ample space and the activity includes the whole family. We have seen wheelchairs on paddle boards and ice rinks – making the impossible feel possible!

"As a family we all tried new, and at times scary, things together. I have realised that it is us parents who have to take the leap of faith, so that our little ones can reach for the stars."
