Gulliver is a children’s theme park that has been designed especially for families, located in Warrington, Matlock Bath, Milton Keynes and Rother Valley.
Although we have heard about Gulliver before, somehow we have never had the chance to visit. The whole family was very excited to go and we were all looking forward to our adventure.
As it was our first family day out since lockdown, we were not sure what to expect. As soon as we arrived at Gulliver’s Land, we were very impressed with the measures in place to keep guests and staff safe: Gully’s Safe Steps to Giant Adventures are clearly displayed around the park.
At the moment, there is a reduced capacity due to the current pandemic, so you can easily walk around the park while maintaining a safe distance from other families.
In order to enter in the park, you need to pre-book your tickets and there are staggered arrival times. On arrival, our temperature was checked. Adults and children aged 3 years old and older must wear face coverings when queuing for rides and on all rides and attractions.
It was lovely to see that there are also enhanced cleaning measures in place, rides are sanitised after each use and there are sanitising stations around the park.
During our visit, we fell safe and relaxed. The boys enjoyed the character appearances, taking photos with characters and the opportunity for air hugs. Our toddler particularly liked meeting Bing and Flop.
I loved the fact that the park has been designed for children from 2 to 12 years old, so there is something for everyone. The rides were a huge success with both boys.
I was pleased to see that the toddler could go on several rides, even though he is under 90cm, and little man was tall enough to go on all rides, which he really enjoyed.
At lunchtime, we stopped at Gully’s Grill for a delicious chicken burger with chips, while the boys had chicken nuggets with chips.
After a busy day going on several rides, we checked in The Adventurers Village. There is a wide range of themed accommodation to choose from: Beach Dens, Lost World lodgings, Gullivers Meadow Campsite, Princess Suites, JCB Construction Cabins, Wild West and Safari tents and lodges.
As our toddler loves dinosaurs, we chose the Lost World Cabin, featuring a large living room and three bedrooms. As soon as we arrived, the boys were very impressed with the dinosaur’s bones and eggs.
Not only was the cabin spacious, it was decorated with dinosaurs, which was a lovely touch. After a restful night, we were ready for another fun-packed day at the park.
In the afternoon, we visited the Dinosaur and Farm Park. It was a magical adventure for the whole family, getting up close with different dinosaurs and going on the different rides and attractions. Although we couldn’t pet the animals in the farm, due to the current restrictions, it was lovely seeing them.
Overall, we had an amazing time at Gulliver’s Land and thoroughly recommend it. The whole family enjoyed and we can’t wait to go back, we are especially looking forward to visiting the Splash Zone.

We were invited to visit Gulliver’s Land in Milton Keynes, however the opinions expressed in this post are honest and our own.
