Doughnut Time World: Swing By This Neon-Lit, Pastel-Coloured Indoor Playground For Adults

What do you get if you cross doughnuts with rope swings and a ball pit?

A ruddy great mess, we imagine, but also: Doughnut Time World, Holborn's new, neon-lit, pastel-coloured Instagram hotspot.

The new venue is part of the Doughnut Time chain, and is for all intents and purposes, a doughnut shop. But it also describes itself as 'a giant pop-up playground for adults', and offers several extras that you don't get in your average bakery.

Neon signs and selfie backdrops adorn the walls from floor to ceiling, and a giant doughnut rope swing hangs in front of a sprinkle-wall, ready for those completely candid, gazing-into-middle-distance snaps.

The centrepiece is "a vast Doughnut Time swimming pool fitted with a diving board and a sea of neon-lit balls" — otherwise known as a ball pit, albeit a glowy one.

Here's more of an idea of what to expect at Doughnut Time World:

And if you're just in it for the doughnuts? That's OK too. Doughnut Time's usual menu of punnily-named treats is available to buy from the counter. Just don't eat too many before you tackle that rope swing, eh?
