Where the magic begins and adventures happen

Stockeld Park is an amusement and theme park in North Yorkshire. It is a magical seasonal attraction that is home to adventure during most school holidays. It is a Grade I listed home and estate that is situated between Wetherby and Harrogate. Family activities held here include adventure playgrounds, an enchanted forest, a maze and lazer adventure, all of which are themed dependent on date of visiting.

The park will be open between the 25th and 31st October for spooky adventures. Here you will be able to try your hand at Nordic skiing as they have a 1.2km trail that will take you through the enchanted forest. You will venture on a breath taking journey as you meander past fantastical illuminated sculptures and ski around the stunning lake. You will see a dancing multi-coloured fountain alongside some mystery surprises; including a stranded mermaid! The recommended age for this is 6 years and above.
