It really is a battle to organise a child’s birthday party where the birthday boy or girl and the guests have a great time – and you are left with some money to spend on birthday presents at the end of all the preparations! Children’s tastes in parties change as they get older, you might have a particular theme in mind, or a strict party budget to keep to… whatever your requirements, we’ve scoured the local party-providers to come up with this handy guide to local options and what they can offer your special party prince or princess!
These details were correct at the time of creation in March 2015, it is always advisable to check directly with the party or service provider about up-to-date prices and the details of what it included.
These are designed to take the stress out of organising a birthday party, by doing lots of the preparation for you. They do vary a lot in relation to cost, and what elements are included for the price quoted – which could be per child, or an all-in cost. Take a look at what’s on offer below, and think about what kind of party would give your child a party to remember. We’ve added a link to Trip Advisor feedback, where available, to give you a feel for people’s experiences (of the venue overall, or of their parties in particular.)
