Kids’ activities in Newcastle: things to know before you go

From the best places to go when the weather turns sour to exciting venues that will brighten up a birthday party, we answer all you need to know about kids’ activities in Newcastle.

What is there for kids to do in Newcastle on a rainy day?

Unless your idea of a fun time is washing the mud out of their clothes, you’re not likely to risk letting the kids splash outside for too long. Take their mind off the misery of being stuck indoors with our handy suggestions.

  • Bouncing fun. The huge play area of trampolines, slam-dunk lanes and battle beams at Jump Giants makes for brilliant indoor fun.
  • Family entertainment. Stay dry under the big top and hark at high-flying stunts at the Charles Chipperfield Circus.
  • Indoor climbing. When the weather's wet outside, climbing centres are a great way for kids to burn off some energy – Climb Newcastle offers lessons and a wide range of walls to suit all skill levels.

What are the best sports activities for kids in Newcastle?

If your kids have had their fill of Fortnite, get them out and about with healthy exercise at one of Newcastle’s various sports centres. Check out our list for some of the best.

  • Football. Enjoy funny football team play in inflatable bubble suits at Nebubblefootball.
  • Climbing. Scramble and clamber with bouldering fun at Climb Newcastle.
  • Bouncing. Slide into foam pits and bounce on huge trampolines at Jump 360.
  • Bowling. Go spare and strike it lucky with a few frames at The Dunes.
  • Paintball. Fire up some fast-paced battle action with 100 paintballs at Paintball Networks.

What are some really special things to do in Newcastle for kids?

There’s plenty of family fun to be taken on Tyneside. But if you’re looking for something slightly different from the norm, check out our recommendations for eclectic kids’ activities in Newcastle.

  • Newburn Motor Museum. Little kids and big ones too will love this fascinating collection of vintage and modern cars, with motoring artefacts and artwork from historical models through the ages.
  • Ocean Beach. Perfect for surfing enthusiasts and those who want to learn. Hop on a specially designed board and brave your way down the Urban Wave Simulator.
  • Funshack. A huge indoor space of adventure fun - kids can take to the trampolines, climbing wall, slides and more.
  • Life Science Centre is your one-stop shop for scientific wonders. Take part in workshops and experiments using all kinds of fun materials, or let your little whitecoats get hands-on with interactive displays about space travel.

What age do kids have to be before they can go climbing?

Generally, the minimum age for admission onto walls at climbing centres ranges from three to five years old, though it’s always worth checking. Kids love to clamber and climb from a very young age, so finding somewhere for them to practise these skills safely is a great idea.

At Sunderland Wall, one of the largest indoor climbing centres in the UK, little ones can join a bouldering session managed by professional instructors where they will be taught how to climb safely. Bouldering is quickly becoming a very popular pastime – and it’s always great to start young!
