Keep the kids entertained!

We've compiled a list of fun things to do at intu Watford

Trying to plan a day out with the kids? We know how hard it is to keep them entertained when you want to hit the shops for a few hours, so we've created a list of activities that you can do at intu Watford to keep the whole family happy:

Rock Up

Rock Up is the indoor climbing experience that every age can enjoy. With 27 different climbing walls towering 8 metres to their peak, it's perfect for thrill seekers big and small.

There's also a soft play for little ones to explore, with slides, swings, ball pool and a range of obstacles. Plus for only £5 you can get an unlimited pass, giving you the flexibility to come & go all day as you please. While the kids burn off all that extra energy in the soft play, parents can sit back, relax and enjoy a coffee & cake in the cafe!
