Our Story

Mark & Gillian Baldwin, Spaceworld Co-owners

Spaceworld began as a small idea way back which involved us the co-founders, Mark & Gillian Baldwin, searching many many cold and dark units across the region high and low with our own children in tow. With sheer determination, entrepreneurial spirit and passion we found our location and Spaceworld Playcentre was born in the heart of Knowsley.

The Team

We have a passion for providing a truly fun and unique experience. We provide state of the art play, fabulous parties and delicious homemade food for our restaurant.

As perfectionists we strive for quality and excellence in all that we do. Our fantastic team are dedicated to bringing the people of Merseyside the best play centre and a truly fun and enjoyable experience for all the family.

Unique & Enthusiatic

At Spaceworld we work with others who are close to us in entrepreneurial spirit and passion. We only work with the very best which enables us to not only provide our customers with the very best but as a business to deliver every time, time and time again. 

Excellent customer service underpins all that we do. Our aim is to continually improve Spaceworld and set the bar higher. We aim to be responsive to the needs of our customers but also push boundaries, whilst introducing new products and concepts to the industry.

Our philosophy

We are not in business simply to make a profit. Like all businesses we require a profit to stay in business, but it is not the only reason we do it. Providing state of the art play, outstanding parties and fabulous homemade food are things we are passionate about. This is and always will be why we are in business.

We would love to see you in Spaceworld soon!
