We know Dorset is usually blessed with warm temperatures, but if the weather takes a turn for the worst, Tower Park is the place to go. In our opinion it’s one of the best rainy-day destinations in Dorset, with a wide selection of indoor activities and restaurants all in one place.
For the thrill seekers among you, Splashdown Waterpark makes an excellent day out. The complex has 13 indoor and outdoor flumes to choose from as well as splash zones for the under 5’s. The water slides vary in speed and difficulty with super fast rides for the more adventurous and a lazy river for those who prefer gentler approach. There’s also a bubble bench and jacuzzi if you’d prefer to sit back and relax whilst the kids play.
If waterparks aren’t your thing, how about ten pin bowling? At Hollywood Bowl there are 24 lanes, a designated VIP area, amusement arcade and an American diner to grab a bite to eat.
For the younger members of the family Lemur Landings soft play might be the ultimate wet weather activity. With plenty of multi-level climbing frames, slides and ball pits to play in they’ll have an excellent time as they burn off some steam. One of the major attractions at Lemur Landing is the LED clip and climb wall. Watch your little one’s scale to new heights as they navigate their way up the climbing wall.
The multi-screen cinema complex shows all the latest releases! Grab some pic ‘n mix, your favourite ice cream and snacks and settle down for a night in front of the silver screen.
One of the best things about Tower Park is the variety of restaurants on offer. Choose from your favourite chain restaurants for dine in or takeaway, including Nando’s, Pizza Express, TGI Fridays, Pizza Hut and KFC.

We booked for two nights in our Motorhome and ended up staying six nights. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Shower blocks were kept clean and water was lovely and hot. Bus stop directly outside site going to Poole and Swanage on the he number 40 bus route. Worth getting a return ticket to save money Mo, Oct 2021
We had a simply fabulous time at South Lytchett Manor last month. We were not sure about camping in October but the site is well insulated, the playground kept our kids well entertained and the facilities were super clean and comfortable. We loved having a shop onsite and there are water taps and electricity points in abundance.. we have stayed at a number of sites and couldn’t recommend this Beth, Nov 2020
Great campsite, really friendly and polite staff. Very clean facilities and felt ‘safe’ with all the hand sanitizer and clear signage, highly recommend - we’ll probably book one of the huts next time.... Richard , Oct 2020
