2.30pm (doors open at 2pm)

Or head to Bluewater this half term to enjoy a whole host of family-friendly fun.

Little ones can discover the secret world of pixies, a magical addition to Bluewater’s award-winning Nature Trail, plus come face-to-face with roar-some dinosaurs on the popular in-mall trail. With great shopping and delicious dining too, there’s something for everyone this holiday.

• From May 24 - The Nature Trail with new Pixie Valley

The Nature Trail is blooming!

As you follow the trail, discover Bluewater’s beach, beautiful Swan Lake, a play area and an array of wildlife.

There’s a whole host of exciting new additions too, including a bug hotel, stepping logs and hopscotch to be enjoyed by all.

Plus, to celebrate the arrival of spring, Bluewater is launching Pixie Valley on the Nature Trail.

Families are invited to search for ten tiny magical doors and windows to discover pixies Flora Honey-Blossom, Rosa Clover-Leaf, Oren Elm-Dew and friends!

Little ones can enjoy the enchanted parkland and be a pixie, posing on the fairy-tale thrones and making a wish at the wishing wall.

• Until June 24 - Road-some dinosaur trail

Families looking for an exciting prehistoric adventure are invited to embark on Bluewater’s Dinosaur Trail.

Come within biting distance of twelve dinosaurs positioned in and around the mall, including the heavy horned Triceratops, speedy Velociraptor and watch out for the flying Pteranodon overhead.

Guests can pick up a trail map from one of the concierge desks, discover interesting facts along the way and once all the dinosaurs have been found, pick up a prehistoric prize!

• Gravity Trampoline Park

Spring into action at GraVity Trampoline Park, located in the lower hall of Bluewater’s Plaza (near the cinema) and spanning over 25,000 square feet.

Guests are invited to tackle the world’s first two-storey Obstacle Adventure Course, featuring moving staircases, rotating floors, spinning punch bags, super slides and a “hurricane alley” – for those who dare.
