Celebrate your child’s birthday at Stanwick Lakes

Looking for the perfect children's party ideas in Northamptonshire?

You’ve come to the right place! We are delighted to offer birthday parties in our Discovery Zone, a private room within the visitor centre. This is the perfect space for your child’s birthday party, with its own private entrance into the room, a beautiful mural on the wall inspired by the surrounding landscape and wildlife, space to hang coats and plenty of room for kids to run around. It is also a stone’s throw from our extensive children’s play areas.

You can simply book the room and use as a base whilst your guests enjoy the play equipment, or arrange your own cake and entertainment. Alternatively, you can choose a selection of crafting and activity options that our team can run for you – such as making pine cone animals, animal masks or insect wall-hangers.

You can add gift bags to your package, and we can also make birthday cakes for you with appropriate notice – please email us at for more details.

The room can accommodate a maximum of 24 children and up to 10 adult helpers. This is dependent on equipment and entertainment and may need to be adjusted per your requirements.

An overview of our packages and pricing can be found in our Children’s Party Leaflet.
