The Milky Way Adventure Park is a multi-award-winning, family-run attraction with some delightful differences.
TripAdvisor named us the 2nd Best Amusement Park in the UK in 2019, and have awarded us a highly coveted Travelers’ Choice Award (given to less than 1% of businesses) for the past 5 years running. But we’re a bit different to many of the attractions that TripAdvisor also included in its Top 10. Like the others, we’re committed to excellence, to providing a fantastic day out, and to constantly adding to and improving what we offer – but we’re also smaller, very welcoming, and a little quirky too (plus, our entrance fees and queue times are significantly less!).
In recent years, we’ve also won the Gold Award in the Large Visitor Attraction category at the Visit Devon Awards in 2016, followed by Silver in the Large Visitor Attraction Category at the South West Tourism Awards, and been named Best Attraction at the North Devon Food, Drink & Tourism Awards in 2017.
The Milky Way started as a farm attraction on the Stanbury family farm near Clovelly in 1984. In the time since, it’s grown both in size and popularity, with over £1million invested in new attractions and upgrades in recent years – but it’s still run by the same family members, in beautiful, rural North Devon.
It’s quite likely to be one of the Stanbury family who serves, greets or helps you on your next visit here – or one of our very loyal members of staff (some of whom have worked here since day 1 too!).
To this day, the most important thing to all of us at The Milky Way is that our visitors (no matter how old they are – from 0 to 100+!) have a fantastic day out, and one that’s great value - virtually all our attractions are included in the one entrance fee. We also design our attractions so that families can play all together - adults are encouraged to have fun with their kids here, rather than just watching them.
You’ll find a very warm welcome when you arrive at The Milky Way, and if you need anything to make your visit better – please just ask.
