We visited Nunsmoor Centre Trust’s FREE sensory room, which is recently new to their venue.
The sensory room is situated at the Nunsmoor Centre, Studley Terrace, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne & Wear, NE4 5AH.

The sensory room is available to book Monday to Friday 10am-6pm, any bookings between 4pm and 6pm need an 24 hour warning due to the Centre being ran by volunteers.

The sensory room is located on the second floor, if you have a buggy or wheelchair, you can use the lift.
The room has a human sized colour changing LED Bubble tower with fish in, there is 8 different colours to choose from a click of a button. They found the lights fascinating and loved the fact the changed colour.
In the room there is also an CD player and a range of CDs with children’s songs on.
You can turn off the lights and pop the sensory ones on and relax to the sound of rhymes.
There’s a storage boxes filled with sensory toys such as light up bouncy balls, musical instruments, fidgets and much more.
There is also a bit of a sensory wall with different textures and materials to touch. However, only issue with this area is the wires lying around from the other electrics.
