Discover the sensory difference here at Sensory Planet Knottingley

We provide a range of sensory environments with a high-quality selection of sensory equipment and various hand-picked unique sensory aids.

Our aim is to provide a fun and enabling sensory experience for everyone. 

Welcome to Sensory Planet, a fully-inclusive sensory centre for disabled and non-disabled people in Knottingley.

We know that you find it difficult to find a really good sensory place where you can chill and relax or bounce around and dance. That’s why we’ve created Sensory Planet Knottingley, it’s just for you and we think you’ll love it.

We’ve handpicked some fantastic equipment and designed our spaces very carefully. For a calming sensory experience, we have things that are soothing to watch with their gentle movement and changes in soft colours. Or if you’re after an interactive sensory experience, we have wall panels that change colour when touched, fibre optics bursting with colour, noisy stuff, bright stuff and practically indestructible stuff too. 

Each room is home to ROMPA equipment. Use the links below to see the full kit list and photo gallery. 

What is a sensory room?

It’s a space filled with a range of things (stimuli) to help you to engage with your senses in a safe environment. 

You might also know them as Snoezelen rooms, controlled multisensory environments or immersive sensory experiences.

We’ve designed our rooms, Galatic Ultraviolet and Lunar Interactive, with high-quality ROMPA equipment that creates different shapes, sounds, colours and lights. Everything you can see, touch and smell have been handpicked by our experienced team with you in mind.
