The Ice Cream Farm, between Whitchurch and Chester, has been named as one of the UK’s most visited free-to-enter attraction in Visit England’s Annual Survey report.

The survey placed the Ice Cream Farm as the UK’s 19th most-visited free-to-enter attraction with more than 800,000 visitors in 2016.

Home to the world’s largest ice cream shop, and an array of ice cream-themed family entertainment, the Ice Cream Farm is the only attraction of its kind in the UK.

Jonathan Fell, director at the farm, said: “We recently celebrated more than 30 years in business, which is something we’re immensely proud of.

“From our humble beginnings, we could never have imagined we would be ranked above some of the most well-known attractions across the country.

“What is truly rewarding is we are a family entertainment attraction unlike many of the others listed in the survey, making us unique.”

After a £5million redevelopment in 2014/15, the Ice Cream Farm now offers amazing activities of all flavours.

From Strawberry Falls adventure golf, Scoop JCB diggers and Honeycomb Canyon – a sensational sand and water play area – to Daisy’s Garden, it is a free play experience with a difference that includes a snow-emitting, life-sized magical ice cream tree sitting at the heart of the mind-blowing site.

Guinness World Records awarded record-breaking status to the Ice Cream Farm in 2016 – an amazing achievement for the privately-owned and thriving Cheshire business.

The Parlour, as the record-breaking shop is known, stocks a huge range of multi award-winning ice creams and sorbets – and a whopping 118,000 ice creams were sold in August 2016 alone.
