Opening Times

Monday - Sunday 10am to 4pm

Swithens Farm Play Barn is a great kids’ activity centre in Rothwell, Leeds, suitable for toddlers and children up to the age of 10 years.

If you’re looking for a fun place to let the kids run around, come rain or shine, then the Play Barn is ideal. A bright and colourful indoor play area, the Barn offers a fantastic combination of ball pools and apparatus providing a safe environment to let off some steam – including a cushioned ball pool for toddlers too.

Slide, swing and climb your way around our indoor adventure playground, while the adults watch from the sidelines with a cup of tea or a snack from our cafe.

Our flexible, family policy means that sessions are limited to 1.5 hours. Sessions are at 10am, 11:30am, 1pm and 2:30pm. However, you can also enjoy access to our Open Farm, where you can meet and feed some of our friendly farm animals!

Entrance to the Play Barn is charged at £3 on Saturday, Sunday, Bank Holidays and Monday to Friday during school holidays, £2 Tuesday to Friday term time.  You must book online using the Tickets tab at the top of the page.
