With Manchester's highly unpredictable weather, it's always a huge advantage to have a list of rainy day options to hand- just in case!
So we've decided to showcase some of Manchester's best indoor family activities that are not only ideal for any occasion but perfect for those times where outdoor fun is just not an option!
Anchors Away Play, Wythenshawe
Next up on our list of rainy day options is Anchors Away Play, an indoor soft play centre which caters for all, from young babies, toddlers and children up to the age of 11, there is something for everyone.
With a great mixture of soft play zones, children's activities, party hire rooms and a family friendly eatery, Anchors Away is sure to become a firm favourite with Manchester Mums.
Play The little'uns of the group (ages 0-3) can burn off energy in the specially designed toddler area, a fun and colourful play arena with soft throw blocks, a miniature wavy slide, climbing apparatus and an inviting playhouse. If that wasn't enough, youngsters will love zooming around in the pedal cars on their very own race track.

Older adventurers (3-11 years) are also more than catered for with a large, soft play zone filled with ball pit areas, stand up spinners, four-lane slide, astroturf football pitch, spiral slide and the ever so popular "Surf Rider".
