Adventures In Wales For The Little Ones

Places to entertain the Little Ones after so long cooped up inside during Covid.

Struggling to keep the kids entertained after lockdown? Don’t fret, iVisit is here with the best places to take your little ones for a day of fun learning, exploration and thrills.

Starting off our list is the vibrant, magical world of Plantasia.

This sensory overloading experience located in a Welsh retail park is home to over 40 species of animals from pythons to parrots and with a recent £1.1 million revamp you really feel like a Spanish Conquistador exploring the Amazon.

Immerse yourself in this fantastic park, join a pack of meerkats for feeding time with surface height plastic domes dotted around their enclosures. Or help the keepers with the Cayman’s feeding time, the only crocodile feeding experience in Wales – truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.

If the crocs are too ‘bitey’ for you, then shift things down a gear by accompanying another keeper to less frightening enclosers full of tortoise, monkeys, meerkats and more. There is something for everyone to enjoy – you can even join the Zoo Keeper Experience.

Plantasia

This summer Plantasia is offering a unique, first time trail. The Animalympics Trail for just £1 on top of your general admission, with athletic and educational elements, challenge the zoo’s residents, climb the podium and collect your medal.

Although, remember not to forget, that animals are only a fraction of what makes up a rainforest. Plantasia is home to a staggering amount of exotic plants native to rainforests across the globe. From plants that imitate birds, ‘the Bird of Paradise” to the Papaya plant that bears the Paw Paw fruit, eaten around the world.

Llanelli Wetland Centre

To continue your adventures into nature is the Llanelli Wetland Centre.

They offer you a break from the noise of ordinary life and your little one’s space to tire themselves out while also being an educational learning experience.

With the seasons changing and the leaves turning now is the best time to visit the wetland centre as these are the signs for the imminent arrival of migrating birds. You will be absolutely shocked at the beauty Autumn has to offer at the Llanelli Wetland Centre.

Watch your little ones explore and giggle as they jump through tiny mud swamps, clambering over the ropes and balancing on beams in the centre’s adventurous outdoor adventure playground.

If you’re courageous enough to take on the ‘adventurer path’ then be sure to run to the wishing well, sneaking past the Wetland Wizard’s cottage and make some noise with the outdoor instruments dotted throughout the centre to determine. (Remember to take your wellies, it’s better to be safe than sorry).

PRINCIPALITY STADIUM

Up next is a deep dive into a huge part of Welsh culture and heritage.

Attend a once in a lifetime experience at the Principality Stadium in the centre of Cardiff.

Be one of few and step onto the hallowed turf and undertake a ‘full pitchside lap of the stadium bowl’ whilst doing so take in the staggering 74,500 capacity stadium under the 800-tonne roof.

Remember to pay attention to your tour guide as they go through fun facts and insights into the stadium and its history of events from concerts by musical titans such as Beyonce, Jay Z, U2 and The Rolling Stones to events such as motorsport, world-class boxing and football.
