Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market a well-established and highly rated children’s play centre, located in the heart of Blackburn, the largest play centre in Lancashire with a floor area of some 24,000 sq feet over 2 floors. Our client created the business in 2016, only now does the business and property come to the market due to our clients desire to retire.

The business trades 6 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of £500,000, there is potential to increase the already thriving turnover, by extending the opening hours, embarking on modern marketing schemes and further advertising.
