Storybook Glen

Place Category: Activities

  • Storybook Glen is a wonderful place for adults and children to remember what childhood is all about!

    Just 6 miles from Aberdeen, this park is a giant play area for kids and parents alike full of storybook characters like Postman Pat and Wee Willy Winkie! There are 28 acres to enjoy with over 100 storybook faces you’ll know instantly. 

    Find Miss Muffet sitting on her tuffet eating her curds and whey and try to guess which story some of the other statues represent like the lady lurking in the undergrowth brandishing a cleaver! 

    This is where unaccompanied children get themselves into all kinds of scrapes – Hansel and Gretel forced out by their wicked stepmother are almost eaten alive; Little Tommy Tucker is forced to sing for his supper; Jack Be Nimble burns himself jumping over the candlestick. And those are the lucky ones – The Old Woman Who Lives in a Shoe is there giving some poor child a sound beating. In contrast, the modern day figures stand out by their blandness – Wallace and Gromit are Fireman Sam are really helpful by comparison.

    This is a brilliant day out even though you’ll have a giggle at some of the statues on display! The entrance fee is a pittance and the park is lovely and walking around there took most of the day! It’s arranged to encourage kids to explore every last nook and cranny and it’s well-paced between characters everyone recognises to more obscure ones. It’s fun, educational and thought-provoking all in one. Every park should be like this.
