It's easy for parents
With lots of parking and drop-off child care, a shopping trip at The Mall is family friendly.
The Mall car park has plenty of parent and child parking spaces, all close to our lifts so it’s easy for you to get to all levels of The Mall.
Parent and child facilities
Our five toilet blocks have baby changing rooms, baby feeding cubicles, nappy vending machines and wall activities to amuse toddlers.
Kidz Play crèche
Need a couple of hours of uninterrupted shopping time? Why not drop the kids at Kidz Play crèche in The Mall?
Younger children will enjoy an exciting play structure with a ball pool and slide, craft activities like playdough and painting, sand play and construction toys, dress up, a quiet area, and more. We also have a range of carefully-selected electronic games for older children.
The crèche is open for children aged two to nine. All staff are professionally trained and qualified.

And fun for children
We’re keen to make The Mall a great experience for our younger visitors. That’s why you’ll find a range of great activities for kids.
Free outdoor play - please note, our outdoor play area is currently closed while we carry out essential refurbishment.
Our outdoor play area is located just outside Boots. It’s the perfect place to run off some steam before strolling round The Mall. Please note: As this is an unsupervised children’s play area, parents or guardians remain responsible for their children at all times.
The Mall train
On selected dates throughout the year The Mall train offers themed rides between Marks & Spencer and John Lewis on special occasions like Halloween and Christmas. Ask at the Information Desk for details.
