Background on Flamingo Land

Flamingo Land Limited has been trading since 1974 and has grown to become the third most popular tourist attraction in the UK.

Our ‘skills set’ are diverse and span from owning and operating a holiday resort, which accommodates up to 5,000 people per night with an en-suite Theme Park which attracts 1.5 million visitors per season.  Our animal collection is the most popular in the country and has won many awards and accolades for our conservation and research programmes.

In 1992 the Company built a 150 acre theme park attraction named Pleasure Island from scratch in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire which attracted 250,000 visitors in its first season.  This operation was sold in 2010.

We have also owned and operated a Football League Club and Stadium during our tenure at Bradford City FC and Valley Parade, respectively. This trading business was sold in 2004 but the stadium ownership was retained within the business

Within our team we have also experienced developing within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park with success.  Castle Steadings (off the A82) and The Orchards housing development in Arrochar are examples of this.

Looking to the future, Flamingo Land has been appointed as the preferred bidder status on an exciting new development in Scarborough.  This leisure attraction, office and retail space again demonstrates the diversity which we possess within our organisation and the trust that Scarborough District Council have in us to improve the appeal of the resort to the rest of the UK.
