A history of high jinks

Hello everyone, and welcome to Wicksteed Park! I’m Charles Wicksteed, the fellow who created this park back in 1913. I wanted it to be a place where children and adults alike could get out and have a bit of fun, whether they fancied zooming down a waterchute, or taking a gentle stroll.

A century later, I reckon we’re still Britain’s best day out. There’s lots more to discover about our story.

Wicksteed’s History

The park today

There’s nowhere quite like Wicksteed Park. Along with 30 exciting rides and activities, including one of Europe’s longest zip wires, there’s 147 acres of beautiful rolling parkland.

Stay the night in our cosy campsite, wander round our woods, or jump aboard the UK’s most popular narrow gauge railway – there’s more to do than you can shake a shilling at. So, are you ready to get stuck in?

Ride News

There’s still plenty to do in term time during the weekdays! Monday to Friday from 12-4pm, the carousel, train, crazy golf and aviary are all open. Tickets are available from the Carousel Café or Wicky’s Play Factory.

Wicky’s Play Factory is open 10am-5:30pm for all the little ones to bounce, run, jump and explore!

Yay! Our rides and attractions are open weekends during September! There’s so much that you’ll enjoy on your visit to Wicksteed Park, including our new music garden near the Woolloomooloo aviary, a new exciting wicker maze and the brand new Tree Top Walk, a 90m-long adventure course taking you into the canopy!

Occasionally, attractions are out-of-action while they receive the love and care they need. This weekend, the Rockin’ Tug will be unavailable.

The Wicksteed Charitable Trust

Wicksteed Charitable Trust

The Wicksteed Charitable Trust, which celebrates its centenary this year, has kept alive Charles Wicksteed’s dream of providing healthy play for children and families.

The Trust strives to bring the history of the park alive to all visitors and reflect its rich heritage but it is also looking forward to ensure a vision for the future that is both innovative and ambitious.
