Gulliver’s Land in Milton Keynes makes for a fantastic, action-packed family day out with more than 25 rides in six themed areas, play attractions and an indoor waterpark. The many great hotels nearby – bookable with Culture Trip – mean you can easily put your feet up at the end of a day of thrills.

The Milton Keynes Gulliver’s Land is actually the third Gulliver’s to open in England, but is a no less magical option for a short break – especially for families with young children. As well as the rides and attractions, there are also various themed events held throughout the year, with some of the popular ones coinciding with Halloween and New Year’s. So that you can easily spend a full day experiencing all the park has to offer, we’ve picked out some of the most conveniently located hotels.
