Things to do with the Kids

Family dining at Gunwharf Quays


There is plenty to do with the children at Gunwharf Quays you can watch a film, go bowling, book into a craft workshop, enjoy a blast out on the Solent in a RIB, drop 25m from the Spinnaker Tower or go for a more leisurely tour around the harbour.    You can visit our new play area located near Tesco and during school holidays and weekends, you will find the Mini Ports, where they can safely set sail on the water on electric boats, our Mini Loco train allows you to explore the Centre and other attractions such as vintage rides and water walkers are here at certain times of the year.

Mini Loco at Gunwharf Quays


At the weekends and during school holidays, we have a variety of further things for you and the family to do.  You can take a trip on our lovely miniature steam train, set sail at the Mini Ports, have a Harbour tour and we even have a vintage fairground and water walkers at certain times of the year.  For older children, they can book a harnessed 25m descent from the Spinnaker Tower if they dare or if they would prefer to have an experience but keep their feet on the ground, they can enjoy Altitude, a virtual reality experience giving the feeling of balancing on the outside of the iconic building, located on View Deck One.
