About Gulliver's

Established in the 1970’s by the Phillips family, Gulliver’s has always been committed to creating unforgettable days out for thousands of families every year.

It’s not just imaginations that get a workout at Gulliver’s – we have a firm focus on keeping children active, and this is a core objective which runs through all of our theme park attractions. We strive to nurture environments where the emphasis is on health and wellbeing through learning and play.

Our Resorts

Designed and built by a family for other families to enjoy, Gulliver’s theme parks, hotels, campsites and attractions are all created for children aged two to 13 (not forgetting accompanying grownups too). We have three existing locations in Warrington, Matlock Bath and Milton Keynes.
