Love them or loathe them - soft play centres and adventure centres are brilliant places to let the kids run wild, while you have a HOT brew for a change.
They're also great to head to if you just need to get out of the house or the weather is terrible because they are indoors, so the kids will be safe and warm.
There is also usually deals for entry and a meal so you can keep their little bellies full too plus by the end of the session they will be ready for a nap giving you a well-earned break.
So if you can put up with the screaming, squabbles and no doubt a few bruises then there are some great places right on your doorstep.
Here's a round-up of soft play centres and indoor and outdoor adventure centres in Liverpool and beyond.
