A unique adventure park, set in more than 20 acres in Alresford near Colchester, is preparing to open its magic portal to an Enchanted Lost Kingdom, providing the perfect family day out.  

Wyvernwood has existed in this quiet and beautiful countryside location for centuries and has only been recently rediscovered by the outside world. From this summer it will be possible for visitors to come and see this Enchanted Lost Kingdom and experience the magic and awe themselves.  

Wyvernwood’s Experiences Director, Nick White, was previously the Experience and Entertainment Manager at the world-famous Hamleys toy store in London as well as spending over a decade with Merlin Entertainments as part of the team managing Shrek’s Adventure and the London Dungeon.  

He explained: “Wyvernwood is like no other visitor attraction in the United Kingdom. It offers an extraordinary world full of wonder and is perfect for children aged 2 to 12 and their families to explore for the day. It will give them the opportunity for a digital detox while connecting with nature.”  

There are numerous play areas and adventure activities, including a 9-metre-high Enchanted Castle, a Captain’s Galleon, Goblins’ Tunnels and Dragon Karting. There is a ‘Little Kingdom’ for smaller children and a birthday party tepee for youngsters to celebrate with their friends.”  

The awesome inhabitants of Wyvernwood play a central role in their guests’ experience as they search the Kingdom for adventurers to help them solve puzzles, decipher riddles, and take on quests such as finding missing treasure.  

“Wyvernwood is where magical and mystical creatures live and thrive,” said Nick. Guests will enter through a Magic Portal into another world, a world inhabited by fabulous fairies, fierce dragons, wise wizards, menacing goblins, a warrior princess and a heroic captain. 


“Children can scale the castle walls, set sail in the galleon, find missing treasure, soar with the dragons and flutter with the fairies. They can also make their dreams come true at the Magic Wishing Well and, if they dare, we want them to discover what lies deep within the goblins’ lair!  

“Once families have explored the adventure activities in the Castle Grounds, they can venture along the Dragon Trail, past the huge maize maze, to the Wellbeing Woods where they’ll discover the Land of the Fairies, find the Captain’s Campsite, and help Merlin create magic potions in the Wizard’s Domain.”  

Wyvernwood will be open from this summer at St. Osyth Road, Alresford, Colchester, Essex, CO7 8ES with the entrance via the B1207.
