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
Its summer holidays – yippee – and we are now open every day.
The car parks open at 9am so you are very welcome to come along early for a stroll however the rides an ticket offices open at 10:30am. Occasionally attractions are not operating while they receive the love and attention they need to keep them safe so please bear with us when this occurs – we will be working hard behind the scenes to open them again. Today the Rockin’ Tug is feeling poorly so will not be working.
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
