1. Gulliver’s World 

Gulliver’s World is every kid’s paradise. With pirate ship rides, bumper cars, waterslides and rollercoasters, the theme park has been a favourite for families in the area and surrounds for decades. The park also has a resort that offers dinosaur and unicorn sleepovers for a night the kids won’t forget! 

2. Walton Hall & Gardens

Situated amid acres of picturesque parkland, Walton Hall & Gardens is the ideal place to soak up Warrington’s wondrous outdoors. Once the home of Lord and Lady Daresbury, the popular destination now boasts some of the best picnic spots and play areas in the town. The grounds also feature a children’s zoo which is home to a menagerie of animals including ferrets, pygmy goats and ponies. 

3. Lymm Dam 

As a winner of the Green Flag Award, Lymm Dam attracts people from around the country each year. The green belt spans over 17 hectares and is a perfect spot to escape the bustle of the city. The park has an array of attractions including woodland walks, water features, striking sandstone rocks and local wildlife.
