New Gulliver’s Valley planned for Rotherham
Planning permission has been granted for the development of a new £37m Gulliver’s theme park in Rotherham.Gulliver’s Family Theme Parks says its hopes to begin construction of what would be its fourth UK park before the end of the year, and the first phase — the main entrance and access roads, theme park hub and core parking — could be open in 2020.
The resort will feature a theme park for young children, woodland adventure centre, an education and ecology centre, a hotel and woodland lodges.
It will be built on the 250 acre former Pithouse West colliery site in the Rother Valley.
Managing director, Julie Dalton, said: “Our plans would transform an area of Rother Valley that has been disused for many years. Gulliver’s Valley would be our fourth UK theme park resort, bringing together the best elements of our existing resorts in Warrington, Matlock Bath and Milton Keynes.”
