On Saturday we got up bright and early and headed into town to check out the opening of a brand new 'kids corner' soft play area in the local shopping centre.
Eden in High Wycombe is a modern shopping centre with a good range of high street shops, restaurants, a bowling alley and cinema. It is also located in the middle of town with the bus station on site, loads of parking, the library and a large House of Fraser. Despite disliking clothes shopping for myself, I spend a lot of time in Eden. It's great for a bit of window shopping and often runs activities and events.
It's bright and airy and has been decorated with jungle themed murals. In addition to the small soft play area, there is a new Toys UK store (moved from another unit in the centre) and a new deli area with some outdoor seating.
I had a quick look in the new 'Sam's Deli' and it looked very nice. There seemed to be a great selection of fresh meats and salad items, a decent range of coffees and some freshly juiced orange juice. I'm planning on going back in the next week or so to check it out properly!
Unlike some other child-friendly destinations nearby, I wouldn't necessarily head to there just to visit the Kids Corner. However, I would certainly recommend it if you're going shopping as it makes the experience so much better for young children. This week they will be running a number of Halloween themed activities and workshops for half-term and I will definitely be attending one or two if I can fit it in around packing and moving. You can find out more info over on their website here.
