Stopped here today as en route on our walk. Takeaway cafe is very well set up. Milk cartons & sugar sticks handed to us with tongs! But rather surprisingly, the toilets are shut. Really not sure why as multiple places have opened facilities in Covid secure ways. Dread to think what the state of the local bushes is by now - take cafe if walking off the paths!

This place offers so much for children, parents and outdoor enthusiast. From ropeways up in the trees to battery-powered segway in two levels of the route and the science museum. Mountain bike-friendly with a lot of parking spaces.

We had a really nice morning in the adventure playground. There is lots of equipment and the numbers had been controlled so it wasn’t overly busy. We didn’t mind paying the £5 to reserve a slot as you can redeem this on a coffee which we would likely have spent anyway. Although the takeaway cafe is open, it really only sells coffees, soft drinks, snacks such as flapjacks and muffins, and ice creams. Fine for us, but I could see another parent had hoped to buy lunch for her children and seemed disappointed there wasn’t more on offer. Definitely make sure to bring a packed lunch if you intend to eat. Although there was a small queue to enter (as you have to give booking reference numbers and receive a wristband), we liked having a reserved table and our own space. Feel like this should be the new normal rather than the rush to try and find somewhere to sit! Overall a nice morning. Could have easily stayed longer than the time allocated. My only major gripe was that there were no toilet facilities open. I asked a member of staff who confirmed these were closed. So you either need a bladder of steel or willingness to go al fresco!

I highly recommend a visit to the Discovery Centre Playground at Bracknell. I am still avoiding public playgrounds, so this is perfect. The centre itself isn’t open, but they are taking bookings for their outdoor playground, which is huge and set in the beautiful woodland. Suitable for toddlers through to 10yrs (in my opinion). You pre-book online, choose your preferred date/time and pay just £5, which when you attend is then added as credit for the coffee shop (this equates to 2 coffees and a pack of biscuits). The £5 booking fee secures a table for up to 6 people (inc. children). Each session is 90mins. When we arrived the car park staff showed us where to park. £2.60 to park for 4hrs, so after your playground session you can also take a walk in the woods. Hand sanitizer at the main entrance and on each of the play area gates. In between each play session, they close the playgrounds, clear the tables and sanitize everything (tables and all ply equipment). I saw the staff kit up with sprays and hoses ready to clean after our session. Toilets - please note these are currently closed. They can book a maximum of 30 tables, which when fully booked I am sure would be very busy. I went on a weekday, during school time and there were about 5/6 tables booked so it was really quiet. Very friendly staff on hand to help and a really lovely and safe play time for my little one. 💓

We were so excited to see the Look Out reopening. What a disappointment. They couldn't have made it more complicated and an unenjoyable experience if they'd tried. Main issue is lack of toilets. (Bird World, Alice Holt etc have all managed a really good system so it's not tricky). The entry system takes at least 2 minutes per person so the queue meant that we missed about 10 minutes of our session. We then queued to get some refreshments but didn't realise we needed a code from a wrist band so lost our place in the queue. You then order and then some poor young lad has to run from one area to get the order to another area to serve it to you. The £5 charge just seems wrong and forces you to spend it in house when most people bring picnics. All in all, we won't hurry back.
