Overview
More
Chucklebutties Play and Party Centre is an Award Winning indoor soft play area with a difference: adults love it too! With views from massive windows overlooking the beautiful Derwent and Belper River Gardens, adults can sit in comfort and relax while the children play. The award winning cafe serves mouthwatering home made cakes, hearty meals and snacks with a healthy emphasis, as well as real coffee and loose leaf teas. The play frame includes four slides, large football pitch, mini car track, climbs and rope bridges, and is suitable for toddlers up. A baby area is situated within the cafe so little ones can play safely with parents nearby. Our website events page has up to date details of upcoming sessions so check it out through the link! Find Chucklebutties at the north end of Belper town centre, between the historic Belper Mills world heritage site and the beautiful River Derwent. From the A6, follow the brown signs for the Derwent Valley Visitor Centre. If parking is tight in the front car park, there are plenty of spaces behind the centre in the River Gardens Public Car Park (left off the A6 towards Matlock). You can then access Chucklebutties over the mill race bridge, between the red brick mill and the river. We are a 5 minute walk from the centre of Belper (on the Derby to Matlock train line, and well-served by local and TransPeak buses).
