The Playspace has reopened




Visitor Information

Please note the PlaySpace will be closed from 5 September 2022 until January 2023 (reopening date tbc) as the space is being used to host school visits linked to the Lindisfarne Gospels.

We want everyone to enjoy the space and feel safe so please:

  • Use the hand sanitiser provided
  • Wear face coverings if you are able
  • Keep to no more than 10 people at once (including the little ones)
  • Take all your personal belongings with you, including litter

To help facilitate cleaning, this space will close at 3.30pm.


Our Playspace is especially for our youngest visitors, where they can dress up, run around and explore.

The circus-themed space features a brand new den, light table, dress-up and new books and toys to explore.

You'll also find a place to park push chairs and seats where you can feed babies.

Changing facilities are available in the ground floor toilets and our cafe serves children's lunch boxes. 

The refurbishment of this Playspace was supported by the John Lewis Partnership Community Fund and Arts Council England.
