Dickory’s Playhouse is quite frankly a treat for the whole of the family! Well organised, well-spaced, well designed and well located, even dad’s going to appreciate this one.
Here, fun takes place over multiple floors with a powerful ball firing cannon in and around the ball pools, cool trampolines and all the classic components to entertain and exhaust the kids somewhere under one roof!
