Gulliver's Kingdom, Matlock Bath

3.8
Theme Park · Water / Amusement Park
Spend time with your young children at Gulliver's Kingdom, an amusement park located on a steep wooded hill, with many rides nestled amongst the trees. While waiting in line for rides, enjoy the view of Starkholmes and the Heights of Abraham. However, take note of the workout the hilly grounds will require, as it may not be suitable to the mobility-impaired. However, it is possible to catch the chairlift to the top of the hill and work your way down. Plan my Matlock trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Great place to visit with young kids, personally kids over 10 years old will find it a little boring. Been here a few times and is average in terms of value, due to adults having to pay even though.....  more »
  • We visited here the for the first time as a family of 3 (2 adults and a 4 year old). All in all, we had a really good day and kids are oblivious to the things that bother adults, but there were a few....  more »
  • Lovely little theme park for under 8’s Plenty to do, park clean enough but terribly dated, the dinosaurs & other statues all have bit missing or the fur had worn off, there is a buffalo that looks...  more »

  • This theme park is fantastic for families with young children. I have a 7 and 11 year old and they were able to go on all the rides. The prices for food and drinks when compared to other theme parks is actually quite good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. As for the atmosphere, as people here were all families with young children, parents and grandparents (didn't see any teenagers or groups of young adults) it was really nice and pleasant. If you have a young family I can't recommend Gulliver's enough
  • Lot of parking spaces from top to bottom. Staff were outside to help everyone to park. Opening time was 10:30 and we reached there 10:28 , there were 500+ people already inside the kingdom. There was not a single ride where people were not waiting. Queues were everywhere. There are lot of hills and sharp turn. Parents with kids in push chairs must bring energy drinks with them to walk around. Welfare facilities are everywhere from top to bottom. Which is very good thing. There were some rides which were not in use or no one there to operate them. Overall all of us enjoyed it. Staff was amazing and helpful:)
  • Great park for young kids. You can get around with a push chair but it's built on the side of a hill so there are some steep hills in places. Good selection of rides, some a little dated but their positioning provides a certain charm. The log flume passes between rocks, and the log coaster is nicely elevated.
  • Great family day out!! Plenty to keep a 12 year old and 2 year old happy! Pretty sure the 2 year old could go on every ride bar a couple which was great! Be warned about the hills though I was also pushing our twins in a push chair and it was hard work 😂
  • Fun place for family, especially young kids to spend a day. Parking can fill up quick on a bank holiday weekend. Consider staying overnight as it is a pleasant place to unwind.
