Gulliver’s Milton Keynes celebrates reaching 45-year milestone

Gulliver’s Theme Park Resorts in Milton Keynes is celebrating 45 years in business and customers from across Buckinghamshire and beyond can expect more fun and frolics ahead to help mark this special anniversary year.

There’s a host of exciting news to come at Gulliver’s Land including ticket deals, more special character appearances, an enhanced education and residential offering, birthday parties, themed activities and events, new accommodation options and park ride and attractions and more!

Kickstarting the year in style guests can take advantage of an early season special offer with ticket prices starting from as little at £15 for those bought online at least two days in advance for visits between 11 February and 12 March 2023. There’s also a unique discount code – FUN2023 – that can be used online to get 25 per cent off short stay breaks.

In addition, the resort has just announced that Bing and Flop has extended its residency at Gulliver’s Land until the end of 2023 alongside the Very Hungry Caterpillar at the Gulliver’s Dinosaur and Farm Park so youngsters will be able to enjoy special meets and greets, photo opportunities, themed accommodation and birthday parties throughout the year.

Land of Lights, Gulliver’s first ever lantern festival, continues to be popular welcoming over 60,000 in total since it launched in November and there is still chance to visit the attraction which runs until 26 February 2023.

The first Gulliver’s resort, Gulliver’s Kingdom in Matlock Bath, opened in 1978 and there began a life-long passion for the family-owned business to provide great value days out and short breaks to generations of children and young people across the UK.

Gulliver’s Land in Milton Keynes became the company’s third park when it opened in 1999 following Gulliver’s World which launched in Warrington in 1989. Rotherham’s Gulliver’s Valley opened in 2020.

Gulliver’s Theme Park Resorts is headed up by managing director Julie Dalton, daughter of founders Ray and the-late Hilary Phillips, with their son Nick Phillips, also a director.

Julie said: “To see how our business has grown and developed over the last 45 years is something we are so proud of here at Gulliver’s. As a family-run company we can adapt quickly to the changing times and our flexible and dynamic approach, as well as really knowing what our customers want, has been to key to this success.

“2023 is a massive year for us and we’re so excited for what we have planned which still follows our original ethos of providing great value, family fun days out and short breaks but also moves with the times with a more vibrant and relevant offering for today’s market. This includes a variety of themed accommodation across our parks, popular character appearances, a unique programme for school and residential visits as well as continuous plans to further develop the theme park with new rides and attractions.

“Gulliver’s Land had also never opened over the winter period before until this season with our hugely successful Land of Lights festival which was a major development for us. It allowed us to create more jobs for local people over a traditionally quieter period as well as provide a really  unique and different offering to our customers. We were also able to reach a different audience who came from far and wide and introduce them to everything that is Gulliver’s!

“Our customers and the communities we are part of have always been at the heart of what we do and we hope they will continue to support us and come enjoy the delights that Gulliver’s offers for young and old!”
