Imagiplay Play Centre

Marlowe’s Makes Imagiplay is Dorsets latest children’s play centre for under 8’s. The focus is very much on inspiring children to be creative and use their imagination through play, indoors and out.

Pre-booking is essential and available on our tickets page.

You can either book to play indoors OR outdoors or add our FreeFlow option to play in both play areas.

The Indoor Playroom

The playroom is our main themed indoor play area, our current theme is a ‘farmyard’.

This area features our large loose parts play set amongst other toys. Our set up is very much focussed around allowing children to be what they want to be, pretend, create and imagine without restrictions. Our play area is spacious and uncluttered. Less is more.

Why not join us for a drive on our tractor or explore our chicken coup.

The Garden

Our outside play area is a beautiful play space with natural shade and under cover seating. 

The garden features our well known gravel pit with trucks, digging tools, gravel spouts and our gravel kitchen.

Alongside that we have 5 themed role play houses which include full toy set ups – Nana’s House, Potting Shed, Cafe, Jail and a Vets.
