Swithens Farm

Swithens Farm is a self-proclaimed great day out for the whole family. Take a stroll around the open farm, feed the animals and let the kids or yourself learn about the animals. When you’ve built up an appetite, head to the café for a bite to eat and a beverage. If there is still energy to be burnt, the play area is the perfect ending to an excellent day out at the farm.Swithen Farm, Swithens Lane, Rothwell, Leed, LS26 0BT

Springhead Park

The green gardens of Springhead Park is a popular spot with Rothwell residents. The mix of formal gardens and natural countryside make for the perfect backdrop for a mid-afternoon stroll, a picnic or just a day out with the family. Alongside a variety of walks around the park varying in length to suit you, the park offers a range of other facilities to keep the whole family entertained. Let the kids burn some energy at the playground, get daring at the skate park or give tennis and bowling a go and when your exhausted head to the café for some well-earned refreshments.Park Lane, Rothwell, Leeds, LS26 0ES

Battlefield Laser Tag

Something a little different, Battlefield Laser Tag is an exciting outdoor activity. With all the gear provided, immerse yourself in a fast paced game of laser tag. Each game or mission has a different objective; it’s your job to work as a team to succeed. The lasers use safe infrared beams and won’t leave you battered or bruised! All you need is some suitable footwear and your game face. Anybody that is big enough to hold the laser gun can play, making it a great day out for adults or kids.Battlefield Lasers tag, Leeds, LS26 8HE
