Kid's and Children’s Activities in Colchester, Essex

Are you looking for children’s activities in Colchester and Essex that will keep your little ones busy and entertained throughout the school holidays and those term-time weekends? Make Poplar Nurseries your first port of call for kid's activities and fun throughout the whole year! Take a break from shopping to visit the special outdoor play area where the children can let off some steam and run around while you have a breather and a coffee from the Poplar restaurant – also the best spot for lunch or grabbing them, and yourself, an ice cream to cool back down! Note that children must be supervised at all times. 

No visit to Poplar Nurseries is complete without a go on our miniature railway; all aboard one of our engines for a delightful three-minute turn around our gardens and grounds. Suitable for all ages including adults – but especially popular with little ones – you can hop on at the station near the play area and watch their faces light up with smiles once they’re off on their way! Tickets for your first ride cost just £2 (for anyone over three) but each subsequent ride is only £1… a ‘rail-y’ good deal so you can ride as many times as you like during your visit! 

We suggest checking the miniature railway opening hours and timings before you visit; bad weather can also be a factor so always have a look on our social media platforms, or give us a ring, before you come to avoid disappointment. Find out more here
