PUXTON Park tourist attraction has been ranked in the top 20 tourist attractions across the South West according to The Annual Tourism Survey.
The Visit England survey compiles a list of the most visited attractions across the UK, and in the South West region Puxton Park was ranked 12th paid-for attraction.
According to the recently published Survey, Puxton was also the only paid-for farm attraction to feature in the top 20 list for 2014.
Visitor numbers also rose by 25 per cent last year with 250,000 visitors welcomed, compared to 200,000 in 2013.
The adventure park says 2015 is on course to smash the 2014 statistics, with a whopping 125,000 visitors already recorded from January 2015 to July 2015.
Its visitor numbers first spiked during the two week Easter school holiday when 25,000 people attended during the unseasonably warm weather.
The busiest day, on Easter Monday, saw more than 2,000 people visit in one day alone, and this surge has since continued throughout the summer holidays.
Puxton’s Alistair Mead said: “This year we have welcomed an exceptional number of visitors demonstrating that we are a highly popular attraction to visit.
“We are pulling visitors from all over the UK and our exceptional feedback helped us to receive the 2015 Certificate of Excellence, the highest accolade given by online travel review site TripAdvisor.
“We are committed to offering fun for all the family and hope we will have many more busy years to come as we expand and invest further into our facilities.”
