Chester ice cream attraction scoops Guinness record

Guinness World Records has named The Ice Cream Farm in Chester as the world’s largest ice cream shop.

The attraction has almost 10,000 square feet of ice cream retail space and celebrates 30 years in business this year.

The site, which has recently undergone a £5million redevelopment, claims to be the most visited, free-to-enter family tourist attraction in the north west of England.

The record-breaking ice cream parlour stocks a myriad of multi-award-winning ice creams and sorbets.

Since its redevelopment, The Ice Cream Farm offers activities such as ‘Strawberry Falls’ adventure golf, ‘Scoop JCB diggers’ and ‘Honeycomb Canyon’ – a sand and water play area.

‘Daisy’s Garden’ play area includes a snow-emitting, life-size magical ice cream tree at the heart of the site (pictured).

Jonathan Fell, director of The Ice Cream Farm, said: “This year we are celebrating 30 years in business, which is something we are immensely proud of.

“However, to gain international recognition from a body such as Guinness World Records has left us totally speechless and bursting with pride.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 30th anniversary.”
