Did you know Wicksteed Park is:

Wicksteed Park is sited in 147 acres of landscaped English countryside and is the only leisure park in the UK which offers the elements of a country and theme park in one.

You can camp here too and we have a huge Sunday Car Boot Sale!

The Park has three distinct ride areas suitable for families, a railway and a family orientated Amusement Arcade.

The Fairground attracts our younger visitors including a traditional carousel, double pirate ship, jumping tower and unique 'Rockin tug'. The Arcade is in this area.

The Arena offers Rocky River Falls, racing cars, paratrooper and roller coasters.

The Lakeside offers a variety of water play including the only Nautic Jets in the UK, bumper boats, canoeing, rowing and the world famous water chute built in 1926. The Lakeside also offers our Aviary as an attraction.

Londonparents do strongly suggest you ring Wicksteed Park before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
