GULLIVER'S saw turnover top £5 million last year according to new figures.

And profit also topped £500,000 for the year.

The theme park company, which runs three sites throughout the country including the one in Old Hall, saw the figure increase to £5,087,417 for the year ending December 31, compared with £4,631,811 the previous year.

Accounts for Weavers Close filed at Companies House also showed pre-tax profit was up to £556,045, compared with £474,779 the year before.

In their report accompanying the accounts, the directors stated: “Theme park turnover increased due to improved weather conditions during the holiday periods.

"However, Splashzone takings were down as a result of closures during the year for refurbishments.”

As well as the sites in Warrington, Derbyshire and Milton Keynes, Gulliver's has started work on a new theme park in Rotherham which is set to open in 2020.
