Whether you’re taking a family staycation or in need of some family days out, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at The Trafford Centre over the summer holidays.

In line with the current restrictions in Greater Manchester, people are asked to visit with members of their household or support bubble only - but there are plenty of opportunities for families to have fun together.

Each leisure attraction has a range of safety measures in place, meaning visitors can enjoy the summer safely.

Zoe Inman, centre director at The Trafford Centre, said: “With 200 stores, restaurants and leisure attractions all under one roof, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Whilst the summer holidays may be a little different than usual, our visitors will still get the usual warm welcome and great day out that they’ve come to expect from us.”

Here are some of the leisure attractions on offer at The Trafford Centre - for more details, including how to book, visit: traffordcentre.co.uk

Dive into a magical underwater world, coming face to face with thousands of amazing creatures including majestic sharks, enchanting jellyfish and resident Green Sea Turtles, Cammy and Ernie!
