There is so much to do and see at Folly Farm, you really need more than a day to explore it all. Good job they offer Boomerang tickets – you can go back within 7 days for half the ticket price!

Make sure you look out for special events when planning your visit – the Folly Farm website has full details, and you can book ahead online to save some money too!

There are some fab visitors coming to Folly Farm this summer:

Chase and Marshall from PAW Patrol on the 12th August and the 13th August 2018.

Peppa Pig and Daddy Pig on the 19th and 20th August 2018.

Catboy and Owlette from PJ Masks on the 26th and 27th August 2018.

Looking ahead to – dare I mention it – Halloween and Christmas, there is Spooky Halloween from 20 October – 4 November and Santas’s Grotto on weekends in November and December.

With loads of free parking, lots of picnic areas indoors or outside, as well as great food, drinks, snacks and ice cream on offer you can choose to take your own lunch or order there.

Don’t forget to visit the Vintage Fair with awesome rides from a Ghost Train to Carousel.

There is something for everyone of all ages at Folly Farm – it is SO much more than a farm. Oh – one last thing, look out for the seagulls outside Cwtch Cafe – we have seen them swoop down and pinch sandwiches, scones and ice creams out of peoples hands!
