About Paultons Park

Paultons Family Theme Park, Home to ‘Peppa Pig World’, has over 60 exciting rides and attractions on offer. Visitors can enjoy everything from a 4D cinema, to a playground with tractors, trains, go-carts, and mini-golf. Paulton’s Park also has its own toyshop, and a zoo featuring Meerkats, birds and Penguins. The Park also hosts a Winter Wonderland in the winter seasons.

The park features rides for every member of the family, from the hair-raising Magma drop and twist ride, to the toddler thrill that is Peppa’s Big Balloon Ride. There’s a double-decker carousel, the Flying Frog roller coaster, the Jumping Bean vertical drop machine, the Pirate Ship Swingboat, and a splashy Viking Boat water ride. There’s much more fun to be had, with clown shows, penguin feeding session and regular visits to the lively dinosaur baby, among many other events offered by the park. School and uniformed groups can explore Professor Blast's interactive lab. There are delightful gardens scattered across this 140-acre stretch of land within the New Forest National Park.
