PlaySpace is an indoor soft play centre, on the edge of central Bristol, set up by parents, for parents.

Our Start-up Story

After raising nearly £500,000 by borrowing, mortgaging and sweet-talking, Harry and Laura Stevens left the comfort of the corporate world to do something that we hoped would be exciting, rewarding, and better for the soul!

With 2 children of our own, we understood how important indoor play is for young children, but always felt that the playcentres we visited could be so much better.

Our goal was to create an indoor play centre not just where kids will have a great time, but THE BEST playcentre in the South West, a place where:

  • It's safe, clean and nice to be in, so parents & guardians can actually relax a bit
  • The coffee is superb
  • The food is healthy and delicious (not the usual deep-fried rubbish!), and sourced wherever possible from local suppliers using British ingredients
  • Staff enjoy their work, feel valued and therefore provide really good service
  • There's always something going on - like our free arts-and-crafts drop in sessions for pre-schoolers, or facepainting at weekends.

We custom-designed all of the play and hospitality facilities and first opened our doors in August 2007. And in spite of the recession beginning to bite just as we were getting really settled, we feel it has been a great success, and we're delighted that we really do make many of our customers lives a little bit better.

If you've not tried PlaySpace yet, please do! We hope you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Our efforts to improve, however, are ongoing, and we welcome any suggestions from our lovely customers - just drop us an email via the 'Contact Us' section of this site. Thank you.
