Paultons Park: The UK’s Favourite Family Theme Park

When it comes to days out in and around Southampton, Paultons Park has been somewhere many have loved for years and with over 70 rides and attractions, you can see why. It first opened its doors in 1983 and has been putting smiles on children’s faces ever since. In recent years, it has welcomed Peppa Pig World and the Lost Kingdom with Tornado Springs being the newest addition to the park.

Lost Kingdom at Paultons Park

Paultons Park can be found in Ower, near Romsey so if you’re visiting from afar, Southampton is your perfect base thanks to its many hotels, restaurants and transport links to help your trip go without a hitch. Tickets are available for one or two days if you can spare the time to book two days then I would recommend you do as there is so much to see and do.

Parking is free and all entry prices can be found on the Paultons Park website. Children under one metre go free and you can also pick up an under-one-metre band from the entrance so you don’t have to keep measuring them at each ride! Ticket price includes entry to everything within Paultons Park so you’ll be able to do as much as you can fit in for just one entry price.

Once you’re through the entrance, there are lockers to store away anything you don’t want to carry around with you as well as somewhere to hire pushchairs which makes getting around the park with tired legs even easier. You can also grab a lost child sticker in case you have a little wanderer which I found reassuring. We didn’t have any problems thankfully but it’s great to know there’s that option if needed.

The park is clean, with plenty of picnic space but if you would like to eat on-site you can choose from Wild Forest family restaurant, The Railroad Diner, and The Station Cafe as well as take-away kiosks situated around the park.

Peppa Pig World, Paultons Park

Peppa Pig World is the world’s first and largest dedicated theme park featuring nine rides, the much-loved characters from the show and plenty of photo opportunities. There’s also a meet and greet at timed intervals throughout the day with Peppa and George! We loved George’s Dinosaur Adventure and Peppa’s Big Balloon Ride. A friend and I took our two sons both aged two and Peppa Pig World was so brilliant for them and hours of fun!

Paultons Park is so much more than Peppa Pig World so you really must make the time to explore the rest of the park. Visit John & Anne’s Garden as you first enter the park, take a trip around the mini zoo to look at the tropical birds, giant tortoises and penguins or take five minutes in the Japanese garden. Don’t forget to make time for Critter Creek and Tornado Springs too.

You can discover more about the attractions at Paultons Park via their attractions page on the website. You can pre-book tickets for both on the website. It’s the happiest place for Children in the UK and adults will love it too.
