Galafield Centre is a Community, Autism and a Children and Families Hub in Newcastle.

They have free parking on-site and local transport nearby.

Galafield Centre have recently just added a soft-play area to their community cafe.

These are drop in sessions from Monday to Friday.

Monday to Wednesday: 11:30 to 2:30pm & 1pm to 2pm

Wednesday: 11:30am to 12:30pm & 1pm to 2pm

Thursday: 9:30am to 10:30am, 11:30am to 12:30pm &1pm to 2pm.

There is no booking required, you just turn up.

This is accessed on a first come first served basis and spaces on the soft play are limited to approximately 10 children for safety reasons.

Therefore, if busy could always have the risk of being turned away so try get in there early, even if you have something to eat first, like we did.

As children can’t get on soft-play til the session starts.

£2 per child for 1 hour and payment will need to be paid at the café. You can pay via cash or card.

This is for children under 6 year olds only. The soft-play is in two sections, one for 0-2 years and another for 2-6 years.

They also have a plenty of books in the cafe for children to read whilst for sessions to start.

The cafe is open Monday to Thursday 8:30am to 2:30pm. You can pay via cash or card also.

They have a great offer on children’s pack lunches for £2.50, this includes sandwich, juice, crisps and a biscuit.

They also have highchairs available too.

There is also plenty of options for the adults from hot and cold drinks to light food options; soup, panini’s and jacket potato.

We had jacket potato, which was decent quality for the price value of £3.50.

There is also a nappy changing area too.
