Sensory happiness

for all

Sensory Planet was born out of the need for an accessible and inclusive multi-sensory venue for all.

We understand the stress, frustration and challenges that parents and carers face each day. The planning and juggling required sometimes just to leave the house. It’s our mission to help lighten that load.

Our Knottingley venue, Sensory Planet is an activity centre that’s designed for babies, children and adults. Our centre is fully inclusive and features everything you need to make your visit that little bit easier, like accessible toilets, a spacious changing area, free parking, generous time slots, exclusive hire and regular group bookings.

Massively recommended this place! I had as much fun as the kids! Staff were fantastic and prices are great! The photos don’t do it justice. Honestly great for ALL children, whether they have special educational needs or not ❤️

What is a multi-sensory space?

The multi-sensory space is a safe and versatile environment with lots of different elements to stimulate or calm the senses. The space can be used as a place for excitement and stimulation, or a space to seek peace and relaxation.

Our rooms feature a wide range of multi-sensory resources. We’ve focussed on several different elements of the sensory experience including;

  • Visual, watching and seeing
  • Auditory, listening and hearing sounds
  • Kinaesthetic, physical activity or body movement
  • Tactile, using the sense to touch

From colour-changing bubble tubes and tactile panels to fibreoptic lights and comfy cushioned platforms, we’re sure you’ll find your favourite piece.
