Visit The Square soft play centre and café in Wells!

The Square has been open in Wells since 2016, the go to place for young children to kick back and let off some steam while the carers get to relax in the comfy seating areas and sample the delights of the café.

There are currently five play areas at The Square with two new areas coming soon!

  • The Main Play Area

This area is approximately 75m² separated into two sections over two floors with loads of play features to keep your children entertained. There is a height restriction in this area that roughly equates to a 12 year old, however there is no lower age limit so parents are requested to be vigilant with smaller children especially at weekends and during school holidays when the centre is visited more frequently by children over 5.

  • The Assault Course

The assault course can be found in a separate room from the main play area and is purpose built, designed to lead the children through one doorway, around the course and exit via a different doorway. Parents can easily see their children as they charge through the course but due to the hectic nature of the course smaller children and babies are discouraged from taking part.

  • The Toddler Area

The toddler area is perfectly situated next to the café and is approximately 25m². The space is enclosed by a padded play area with lots of interactive pieces of equipment. It has been specifically placed in the far corner so while it is close to retain the atmosphere, it is far enough away to create a sheltered corner for parents and toddlers to play safely. It’s also right next to the baby room so parents with babies and toddlers can watch them both. This area has a height restriction which roughly equates to around 3 years old.

  • The Baby Room

The baby room is an ideal retreat for babies and their parents/carers as it’s separated from the main play area with a child-proof gate but still easily accessible to the main room. The area is approximately 40m² with a special sensory area containing lots of different features to attract baby’s attention with additional seating space dedicated to parents and babies. The maximum age for this room is 18 months, although this is a guide as babies develop at different rates.

  • The Courtyard

The Square has a fantastic outside courtyard area, fully enclosed so little people cannot escape! It's a sunny spot with a padded safety floor and lots of seats. There is a large chalk board for the children to decorate as they see fit and an amazing disco bouncy castle. Sounds exciting to me! This area is open May to October, weather permitting.


Work is now underway to bring you a new inflatatable room AND an interactive room the interactive room will have 25 different games. The set up is basically like having a large tablet on the floor. We'll keep you updated with the progress and let you know when it's open!

The café is situated in the middle of the main room, perfect for parents to view the children playing. This café is in no way an afterthought and achieves its aim of ensuring the parents have as much to visit for as the children. Following the coffee shop model you will find excellent ‘proper’ coffee, tea, milkshakes and other drinks along with a range of sandwiches, paninis and wraps from Bristol supplier RealWrap plus savouries and cakes from local artisan bakers at LOAF Bakehouse in Wells.

The staff at The Square are really friendly and accommodating.
