Soft Play and Other Play Centres
This is a comprehensive list of all of the soft play centres in Leicestershire. It is not a list of recommendations or endorsements but ideas on where to go. We have not managed to visit all of these indoor play areas ourselves. Unless they are running limited play sessions each centre should be somewhere you can spend two or more hours. Prices and opening times vary. Please check each website before you visit.
360 Play – Leicester
There is so much to do at 360 Play in Leicester. Including soft play with a large wave slide, Dodgem car track, role play areas, ball pool, messy play, carousel, toddler zone and more.

Average Joe’s @ NCP – Loughborough
“We are an independent coffee shop with a small 5’s and under play area based in Loughborough. Average Joe’s is located in the same building as NPC gym and started life as just our reception area. Gradually we grew into a stand alone coffee shop serving a range of hot & cold drinks, snacks and light lunch bites for our customers, gym members and members of the public as eat in or take away options. We have a small pre-school age play area where children do need to be supervised during your time here. We also only allow children under 120cm to use the centre.”
