Posted on the 17 October 2023 by Sparklesandstretchmarks @raine_fairy

When it comes to family-friendly attractions in the UK, Paultons Park stands out as a must-visit destination. Located in the picturesque New Forest, Hampshire, Paultons Park is a theme park like no other. With a perfect blend of thrilling rides, charming attractions, and breathtaking natural beauty, Paultons Park is an ideal choice for families with kids of all ages. 
We used to visit often when my children were younger as it's home to Peppa Pig World, but it'd been a while since our last visit when we returned last week - I wasn't sure what we'd make of it with older children but I have to say, my 7 and 8 year old ride-reluctant littles loved it as much as my 10 year old thrill seeker did. It was perfect for all!
If you've yet to visit, I highly recommend it - here are 8 reasons why you should:
1. Home of Peppa Pig World:
If your children are fans of the beloved Peppa Pig cartoon, Paultons Park is a dream come true. It's home to Peppa Pig World, an enchanting realm filled with themed rides, attractions, and interactive experiences that will transport your kids into Peppa's world. From a whimsical boat ride with Grandpa Pig to Peppa's Big Balloon Ride, this magical world brings their favorite characters to life.
2. Diverse Range of Rides:
Paultons Park offers an impressive array of rides for kids of all ages. For the younger ones, gentle rides like The Tractor Ride and the Viking boats will provide endless fun while older kids and thrill-seekers will be thrilled by adrenaline-pumping attractions such as the Flight of the Pterosaur roller coaster and the thrilling Edge ride. Then there are the timeless classic family rides which everyone can enjoy together, like the train ride around the perimeter of the park or the double-level Victorian carousel. There really is something for everyone!
3. Meticulously Designed Gardens:
While Paultons Park is known for its exciting rides, it's also celebrated for its stunning gardens and beautiful landscapes. The park's gardens are meticulously maintained, offering a serene escape from the excitement of the rides. Stroll through the gorgeous landscapes, and let your kids explore the intricate mazes and play areas scattered throughout.
4. Educational Experiences:
Paultons Park seamlessly combines fun with education. Visit the Lost Kingdom and learn about prehistoric creatures, or head to Critter Creek to discover an array of exotic creatures. You can even watch animal feeding sessions and learn more about the habits and habitats of meerkats, penguins and more. These educational attractions provide a great opportunity for children to learn while having a blast.
5. Family-Oriented Atmosphere:
One of the things that sets Paultons Park apart is its family-oriented atmosphere. The park has been designed with families in mind, offering numerous facilities like baby care centers, quiet zones, and family dining areas. It's also one of the cleanest and best kept theme parks we have ever visited. This ensures that both parents and children have a comfortable and enjoyable visit.
6. Seasonal Events:
Paultons Park hosts special events throughout the year, making every visit unique. From Halloween celebrations to Christmas-themed extravaganzas, these events add an extra layer of excitement to your trip. Your kids will love the chance to meet Santa Claus, join Easter egg hunts, and experience the magic of the holidays. They are currently running their Halloween Spooktacular event which looks epic!
7. Delicious Dining Options:
Paultons Park boasts a wide range of dining options to cater to all tastes. Whether your kids are craving a pizza, burger, burritos or healthier options, the park's restaurants and food stalls have you covered. Additionally, there are plenty of picnic areas if you prefer to bring your own snacks and lots of ice cream and donut stalls dotted around. One of my favorite things about visiting is that its one of the few places in the UK where you can get the Disney World classic snack Pineapple Dole Whip! 
8. Easy Accessibility:
Paultons Park is easily accessible from major cities such as London, Southampton, and Bournemouth, making it a convenient destination for families traveling from various locations. The park offers ample parking and excellent public transport links.
