As we’re now heading in to what will likely be the longest summer holiday for the kids that there ever has been, now is a good time to suss out the attractions that you can easily call upon for a well deserved break. In Farsley, the reliable go-to spots are Jackaboos soft play centre and West Royd Park as well as Hainsworth Park. Jackaboos soft play centre can be found in the Old Combing part of Sunny Bank Mills; they welcome kids under the age of 8 to have a day filled with fun with their many slides, ball pools and play areas. At West Royd Park and Hainsworth Park, the whole family can enjoy an inexpensive day outdoors, enjoying the well-kept gardens, tennis courts and the lovely West Royd House which sits at the centre. \If your visit right, you may catch the brass band which plays regularly at West Royd House.
The Constitutional and Get Cooking are two of Farsley’s alternatives for a slightly more mature day-out, or night out. The Constitutional is not only a successful combination of comedy club, bingo hall, and venue of music, quizzes, theatre and spoken word, but also a successful combination of contemporary and old-school; the decor and atmosphere is reminiscent of a retro cosy comedy club. With events every week, The Constitutional is a reliable spot for some light-hearted fun and some delicious craft ales.
Get Cooking offers a range of cooking classes, courses and workshops for both novices and experienced foodies alike. Options for cooking classes and courses include Mediterranean, Spanish, Latin American & South Asian cuisine, as well as breadmaking and herbalism. But the classes aren’t strictly limited to cuisine; lampshade making courses are also available at this space in Farsley’s Springfield Mill.
