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?Park and Grounds
Wicky’s Play Factory is open 10am-5:30pm for all the little ones to bounce, run, jump and explore!
Every weekend in October plus half term week (24-28 October), 11am to 4pm. We’re opening more than 20 of your favourite attractions including brand new Tree Top Walk and Meerkat Burrows. What’s more, you can enjoy a day of inclusive* activities for as little as £9 for senior citizens, £10 for adults & mini-me’s and £12 for children. It’s your last chance to use 2016 ride tickets – make sure you bring them along.

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.More about the Trust
