With over 60 rides and attractions, an animal park and a prime location on the cusp of the New Forest National Park, Paultons Park is a popular choice for a family day out, especially for those with younger children. The park’s star attraction is Peppa Pig World, a theme area devoted to the British children’s TV show, where preschoolers can delight in meeting their favorite characters, riding the themed amusements and playing in the ‘muddy puddles’ splash pools.
The rest of the park offers plenty of entertainment for all ages, including rollercoasters, water rides and carousels, plus a 4D cinema, mini golf, go karts and a tourist train, all in addition to the dinosaur-themed Lost Kingdom featuring animatronic dinosaurs, Jurassic-themed rides, and dinosaur adventure play areas. Visitors to Paultons Park can also explore the park’s beautiful gardens and lakes, home to animals including penguins, giant tortoises, and flamingoes.
Paultons Park is located in Hampshire at the edge of the New Forest National Park, 80 miles southwest of central London, and is open from March to October and on school holidays. Opening hours vary, but are typically from 10 or 10:30am to 4:30, 5, or 5:30pm. Tickets start from £25.75.
