THE HISTORY OF Gulliver’s Theme Park Resort

Before Gulliver's Land came into existence the founder, Ray Phillips, had a background in construction and was particularly involved in timber-framed houses.

The idea of creating a family-oriented theme park emerged when a significant piece of land in Matlock Bath was offered to them by an estate agent.

Although the initial plan was to build just one house Roy explored alternative options by consulting with planners.

The planners expressed a desire for a visitor attraction on the land leading to the decision to establish a model village. In 1978, Gulliver's Kingdom was born.

It became evident that children visiting the attraction were limited in terms of activities.

To address this they introduced additional features starting with a small train and second-hand rides, marking the beginning of the park's expansion.

With its popularity growing rapidly among families in the Midlands, the park faced challenges in expanding further due to its limited 15-acre size. Consequently, the search for a second site began.

Considering the complexities of obtaining planning permission the park sought locations with "new town" status that offered greater planning flexibility.

After exploring various possibilities Warrington, approximately 60 miles northwest of Matlock, expressed great interest in having the park as part of their new town development. Gulliver's World was opened on a 60-acre site in 1989.

For their third site a 60-mile radius was drawn around Matlock and the search commenced in the opposite direction.

Ultimately, Milton Keynes was chosen as the ideal location offering new town status and easy access from London. In 1999, Gulliver's Land opened on a 30-acre site.

While the parks are still referred to as Gulliver's Kingdom, World, and Land, the focus is on the Gulliver's brand in advertising to avoid confusion. 

Although each park has its unique characteristics they all feature similar types of rides with some being moved between parks.

Gulliver's core philosophy, catering to children aged two to 13, has remained unchanged since its inception in 1978.
