Pirate's Playhouse

London

Built as a decorative water pumping station, now a climbing centre, this distinctive Victorian castle also hosts a playframe, separate from the climbing centre itself, and filled with thrilling slides and obstacle courses. It seems small until you look up, its height providing a true challenge to clambering pre-teens; there’s also a large toddler area with a spotless ball pool and soft-play puzzles. (The confined space can start to smell a

bit like yesterday’s socks towards the end of the day, though.) Parents can sit in comfort around the frame, or in a cosy sofa-and-magazine bedecked side room if they trust junior out of sight. Very friendly staff serve good coffee and sandwiches.

One star is a generosity. This place is absolutely disgusting. Not only is it filthy, but the staff are careless and the apparatus is dangerous. There are numerous faults with the equipment masked with duct tape and other useless cover ups. The toilets are horrific. Please if you care for your children's health do not take them to this disaster cave.

Just got here and was told by staff it was not worth coming in as it was closing soon so I said I thought it was 7pm you closed and she said yes but the last entry was at 5.30 pm so I said we'll that's ok cos its only 5.20 pm now she let me in with a huff and mumbled to herself after taking my money and told me as long as you are out by 6.50 pm.i would have told them to stick there playhouse but had already promised them they could go,to be honest just over an hour is more than enough for any kid as the would have been bored any longer as its not got much to offer especially for over £4 a child never again

Great place to take the kids after school, weekends or holidays, they love the place, never get bored. The staff are very welcoming and can help with most things
