Are you looking for birthday party venues for where to have your next kids’ party in and around York? I’ve put a list together with lots of great ideas. Some you might know about already and some that may be new to you.
Our List of the Best Kids’ Birthday Party Venues in York
If I have missed one you think should be on here, let me know and I’ll add it! Some of the places I have reviewed too if you need more info and photos.
Drive a Tank Party
Tank Heroes near Beverley do a fantastic job at a kids party. They hurtle around the woodland driving their own tank! They can also try their hand at rifle shooting.
Hire a Hall and an Entertainer
If you have a local village hall or community centre, you could consider hiring it along with an entertainer. We have used the Magic Hatter lots and can recommend him. Completely professional and the kids love him!
York Venues offer children’s parties at York Castle Museum with themed activities and decorations based on the amazing toy collection. Parties include a gallery trail, craft activities, themed games, invitations, gifts and outfits, and much more.
Looking for a dinosaur party? York Venues offers a children’s dinosaur party at the Yorkshire Museum. All the info and prices can be found here.
Unicorn Pony Party
Burnby Equestrian, Nunburnham, Near Pocklington
We have reviewed Burnby Equestrian Pony Parties (with a twist – the birthday child gets to ride a ‘real’ unicorn!
The Woodland Adventure Company, York and Harrogate
“We run parties all year round and in all weathers* battling the elements with shelters, tepee’s, tarpaulin’s, fires and stoves. We have a pizza oven as well as hot snacks and drinks, to keep us warm.” We have reviewed the Woodland Adventure Company here.
Soft Play, High Wires, Quad Bikes and Go Karts
Huge Indoor and Outdoor play areas, with organised children’s parties. Water Play and Animal Zone.
See our review of Creepy Crawlies Soft Play here.
Ten Pin Bowling or Laserquest, York
Ten Pin organise bowling or laser quest birthday parties for kids in York.
Smile Café, Soft Play and Clay Play
Lovely independent family business. I’d really recommend the Smile Café, especially for younger children. They have a fab contained soft play area. Café which does good quality real food and a farm shop to take goodies home from afterwards.
York’s Chocolate Story, York
Build-a-Bear Workshop, Designer Outlet, York
The Build a Bear Workshop at the Designer Outlet in York does some lovely birthday parties and the children get to take home a toy afterwards. Plus upstairs there is a food hall so you can feed them too!
Skiing or Sledging party (or Laser quest, ten pin bowling, arcade games, cinema or 4D golf!)
There are loads of party opportunities at Xscape in Castleford including a sledging party which I think sounds fab! I’ve reviewed some of the activities here.
Clay Play Party
Painting mugs, plates, money boxes or your choice of theme, no limits you choose what you want from £9.00 per head.
Clay and Throwing parties also available.
Energi will host your trampoline party. They also have private party rooms for when you are done bouncing and need to eat!
This is a fabulous place if you’ve never been. Master T had his party here one year and loved it. They have ‘Junior Racing’ karts for ages 4-8 and then all the ages upwards.
Ski/Bowling/Adventure Climb/Aerial Trek Parties
There are lots of different options at Summit in Selby. The climbing walls look amazing!
