The Irish Fairy Door Company has teamed with Gulliver’s Theme Parks to launch its first UK ‘woodland fairy trail’ attraction for young fans and families.

The new deal sees Gulliver’s Milton Keynes resort become the first to install an interactive trail called Whispering Woods that encourages families to explore the firm’s world of fairies.

The attraction sees visitors engage with eight fairy doors along the trail, each of which features an accompanying name plaque and QR code that once scanned will offer content such as a story about the fairy behind each door.

In addition, the partnership will also see The Irish Fairy Door Company’s range of handmade wooden fairy doors on sale in the resort’s gift shop.

“This is our first fairy trail in the UK, they have already proved popular in Ireland so we are confident UK families will love them, too,” Niamh Sherwin-Barry, director of The Irish Fairy Door Company told ToyNews.

With the first UK Whispering Woods up and running, the firm aims to expand the attraction across Gulliver’s portfolio of parks.

“Gulliver’s is an award-winning family-run organisation and its ethos is a perfect fit with The Irish Fairy Door Company,” continued Sherwin-Barry.

“More than a million people visit Gulliver’s Theme Parks every year. This is an opportunity to further establish ourselves in the UK market.”

Dean Kimberley, director of guest services at Gulliver’s Theme Parks, added: “This attraction is sure to enchant and thrill younger visitors to Gulliver’s.”
