The theme park combines themed lands, themed to different parts of the world, with an award-winning zoo. The mansion at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, known as Burnt Stub Manor, was originally built in 1348, in Chessington, Surrey. In the English Civil War it became a royalist stronghold, and Oliver Cromwell's Parliamentary forces razed it to the ground. The Burnt Stub site was rebuilt as an inn, until the 18th century, when the Vere Barker family rebuilt it in neo-gothic Victorian style. Today, it is normally used for private events.

Added DiffLines:

Chessington World of Adventures is a theme park located in [[UsefulNotes/LondonTown Surrey]], England. It is one of the country's leading attractions. Like its sister parks Ride/AltonTowers and Ride/ThorpePark it is currently being run by Merlin Entertainments Ltd., and caters for the family market. Its popularity is thanks to John Wardley, ride concept designer for Tussauds and now Merlin's creative consultant who revolutionised the British theme park industry from the late 1980s to the early 2000s, who developed the park through theatrical brilliance.
