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 – click below to find out more.

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 – perfect for a game of frisbee, or a big family picnic. 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

” I took my children many times over the past twenty years and look forward to taking our grandchildren as soon as they are old enough.”
