The UK attraction with record-breaking water & sand play area plus 50 types of ice cream that costs just £2.50 to enter | The Sun

AN attraction in the UK has been compared to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory – and it even has one of Europe's biggest water play areas.

The Ice Cream Farm in Tattenhall, Chester, was originally a dairy farm.

However, it was turned into a huge attraction following a £5million redevelopment in 2014.

It is also home to the largest ice cream parlour in the world, with the 10,000sqft parlour serving more than 50 different flavours including unique options such as Turkish Delight, Popping Candy and Donut.

Inside the park are a range of attractions for all ages too.

The Fun Factory is an indoor soft play area for toddlers, as well as The Loft which is for older kids, with a driving similar, jukebox and pool table.
