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
Yippee! We are open everyday! 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!
Wickys Play Factory will start charging the School Holiday price tier on Monday 25th July and the parking reward scheme will start, please click here for more information.
Occasionally, attractions are out-of-action while they receive the love and care they need. Today the Waterchute, Cups & Saucers and Roundabout are out of action.
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
