If you go down to Enchanterwood today, you’re sure of a big surprise! Here at Alexander’s, we try to keep your summer holidays filled with fun family activities and now we’ve introduced an exciting new feature to get your kids using their creativity and keep them entertained and enthralled.

Together with the technological wizards at our sister company, Peel Interactive, based at Broughton Hall, Skipton, we’ve developed an augmented reality (AR) colouring experience for children. A twist on the traditional colouring in sheet; kids aged 3 and above can colour in two fantasy characters and use our in-house iPads to bring their drawings ‘to life’ by hovering over their picture. Watch their faces light up as their own creations leap off the page!

Alexander's AR colouring app for children


This revolutionary app also includes an exciting digital game to keep your little ones minds’ engaged, active and curious as they help the woodland characters run, jump and explore. The perfect activity whilst sitting down together as a family waiting for your meal to arrive, or while you grab some me-time with a coffee on the Terrace.

We have a yummy children’s menu for our Little Explorers to enjoy and we’re pram friendly with easily accessible baby change facilities on the ground floor, so come along and discover Alexander’s today.

Don’t forget, we’re also running a summer holiday cookery school with Chef Noodles the Bear– whether your child is a novice or the next Jamie Oliver, we encourage children of all abilities to try new ingredients and develop their culinary skills.
