    Not over priced, great day out.
    Absolutely fantastic. I used to go as a child and it was magical. Its still wonderful. I couldn’t believe how beautifully kept the grounds are. So clean. Rides are fab for my 2 year old. When booking i thought it was a little expensive but i now think it is so reasonably priced because you can see the investment. Food not over priced either. We’ll be back!

    Fantastic day out
    Fantastic day out. The park is so clean and tidy, the staff should give themselves a pat on the back to keep the attraction in such tip top condition. All of the staff are helpful and friendly. The que times for the rides at the time of our visit were short which is good with the little ones. Will definitely be back soon.

    Will definitely be back!
    We have been visiting every year for the last 3 years and will definitely be doing so for many more years to come. We started with just Peppa Pig World but our eldest who is now 4 is starting to explore the “bigger” rides in Paultons Park. The park is spotless, beautifully presented and cared for, there is always staff mowing the lawns and constantly walking around with litter pickers. The gardens and flowers are worth a visit alone. Staff are all very friendly and park feels so safe, I happily wonder off with our toddler to explore Peppa Pig World whilst my husband takes my son on some bigger rides. A very good selection of rides which we personally think surpasses Chessington and Legoland. As we live just over an hour away we do a day trip and have never managed to see even half the park and next time will definitely be staying over for the second day. Previously we have visited in May and never waited more than 5 minutes for a ride but today the longest we waited was about 20 minutes but I can imagine this would be a lot longer in the summer holidays and children would become bored and frustrated with queuing and there is a lot of queues which do not have cover from the sun. Others have said food is expensive which yes it is if you’re having snacks (hot dogs) or sandwiches but we tried the burger restaurant this time and at £12 the portion was large and good quality and we would have paid this if we had gone out to a restaurant for lunch. There is also plenty of areas to eat your own picnic if you wish to save a few pennies. The only thing I really wish they would change is to let you out the exit without having to walk through the toy shop. All in all an excellent day and would throughly recommend.
    Dear Emuz1986 We are delighted that you feel Paultons deserves a 5* rating and thank you for your review. It is wonderful to read that you have been visiting the Park for the last 3 years and will certainly continue to do so over the coming years. Customer service is a top priority for us here at Paultons and therefore is so pleasing to hear that the staff are always friendly and you feel safe splitting up as a family to visit different areas. We are also pleased that you feel there are a good selection of rides and attractions suitable for guests of all ages to enjoy. We would like to thank you for your recommendation and we very much look forward to welcoming you to the Park again soon. Kind Regards Paultons Park

    Absolutely fantastic
    Absolutely fantastic!! Got parked really easily and for free. Really quickly get in the park and we got there for then they opened so thought it would take ages. I was honesty so impressed. This theme park is miles better than any I have been to. Lots of clean toilets. Tons of seating about the park which was great for those not going on rides. Lots of kiosks with food and drinks (not bad pricing either). The park was clean, tidy and really up together. The wait times on all the rides were generally only 5-20 minutes so we did over 20 rides in the day. The feel of the park was so much more relaxed than many I have been to. No running around getting barged by people. I am honestly so impressed and would highly recommend Paultons park for a day out. We took my 12 year old son and his 10 year old cousin and there was plenty for them to enjoy.
    Dear 626joannah Thank you for such a lovely 5* review! It is fantastic to hear that your family thoroughly enjoyed you day here at Paultons and found so much to keep you all fully entertained. We are delighted to read your wonderful comments regarding your recent visit and how relaxing you found the atmosphere around the Park. As a family owned and run business, it really is a pleasure to receive such praise from our guests. We hope that we may have the opportunity to welcome you all back to the Park again one day soon. Kind regards Paultons Park

    Great day out but very expensive.
    We have been to Paulton Park a number of times now and it really is one of the best days out we have. I have been to several theme parks in the UK and for us Paulton Park is by far the best but not without its own issues. The Price is extreme £167 for a family (booked in advance £220 on the day) of four for one day is just crazy and I would suggest giving a 2nd day free for this price. There is lots to see and do at the park from the obvious theme park but also for those wanting something more relaxing the gardens and areas surrounding the park are beautifully kept with bird aviaries and other animal enclosures. The waterpark is also another nice addition as there is no deep water to worry about your kids getting in trouble, just spray nozzles, barrels, etc., in a main enclosed area. Everything inside the park food and drink wise is as you would expect (Pricey) approx £3.50 for a 500ml bottle. would go again but the price is the only thing that stops us going more.
    Dear 376ewanl Thank you for taking the time to leave a five star review of Paultons Park. We are thrilled to read that Paultons is one of your family's favourite days out and are delighted that you have noted the extensive grounds and gardens and Water Kingdom splash park to be particular highlights of the park for you. Paultons Park is an independent, family owned and run theme park and we are very proud of the value for money we are able to provide our guests. Admission tickets to Paultons include over 70 rides and attractions covering Paultons Park, Tornado Springs, Lost Kingdom and Peppa Pig World therefore offering a full day's entertainment across a 140 acre site. We continually invest heavily in the Park to ensure that a first class, unique experience is delivered to all guests visiting.

    Summer holiday
    Paultons Park is a great theme park - clean, lovely well maintained grounds for picnics, a good choice of rides for families and even at the height of the summer holidays queues rarely longer than 5-10 minutes. There are lots of places to eat / get an ice cream and various shows / animal talks if you want a break from the rides. The splash park is also a great addition. Plenty of staff around and all very friendly. Would recommend booking through the Paultons breaks website if you’re staying overnight to get the second day free.
    Dear Charlom1 Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Paultons Park. It is absolutely fantastic to read about your brilliant visit to the park, and we are delighted to read of the many highlights of your day including the range of rides and attractions suited to your family and the manageable queues for the rides, the welcoming and attentive members of staff you encountered during your day and the extensive gardens suitable for picnics and taking a break from the larger crowds.

    Fantastic park
    Fantastic park for toddlers and teenagers alike. We were absolutely stunned by how immaculate the gardens and surrounding areas were. Beautiful flowers everywhere and not a drop of litter in sight. Our toddler thoroughly enjoyed Peppa Pig World and even on a busy summers weekend, very little queuing was experienced. We would not hesitate to return.

I have never written an online review before but felt compelled to do so due to the shocking overcrowding at the park today. We booked tickets feeling confident that these were limited in number and that the management had put in place necessary measure to make the park Covid safe. The overwhelming number of people heading in to the Peppa Pig World section of the park today made social distancing impossible. Social distancing is everyone's responsibility, however when queuing and using rides this is the responsibility of the management and staff at the park. There are hand sanitisers and some evidence of operators wiping down rides but this is far and few between. Safety is not being managed well. All rides today appeared to be operated and lines managed by a team of staff averaging an age of 18-20, none of whom seem to lack the ability or confidence to challenge anyone around them. Queues were over 50 minutes long with people not adhering to the clearly marked yellow lines on the floor. At one ride we became sandwiched between two families when another family had to come back into the line when the operator wrongly let the family through when seats where not available; we had nowhere to move to to allow proper social distancing. The playgrounds and splashpads were operating as if Covid had never existed. If Paultons Park want the general public to work with them and make the park safe then maybe they need some visible management or staff on the ground level with experience who can manage their young workforce and direct the crowds. Very disappointed with our trip today.

Me & my wife took our 19month old son to Paultons Park, mainly for the Peppa Pig aspect and although we only did one thing in the Peppa Pig area due to the crowd levels in that section, we had an amazing time throughout the rest of the park!

We managed to go on around 7 different rides with our toddler, even though he is under 90cm tall and many of those rides we went on 2-3 more times as he loved them so much! The queues for all the rides we went on were short, less than 5 minutes.

We got into the park around 11:15am after parking up around 11:05 and the walk to the front of the park and entrance to the park was very smooth, no queue whatsoever. We went to the Peppa Pig area first and it was nicely themed, however as expected it was incredibly crowded. Queues were ranging from 25-70 minutes for the various ride so we left this area to see if it would be quieter later. We then proceeded to go on many rides over the course of the day, stopping at a lunch place near the carousel for a small cheesy chips, drinks and a lunch bag for our toddler (£16.50 total 😬). We did manage to go back to the Peppa Pig world around 2:00 and get on grandad dogs boat ride in less than 5 minutes and could have done the train ride too as that was a short queue but we decided we liked the rest of the park better and went on the other rides again! At the end of the day, we took our toddler into the huge splash area they have and he absolutely loved this! We had forgotten suncream and a swimming outfit for our toddler but we bought some from the main shop for a reasonable price as they were in the sale.

Social distancing measures were in place with markings on the floors etc. 90% of people generally stuck to the measures but like with anything, not everyone thinks the rules applies to them and takes it seriously. Masks were enforced inside the main store by the entrance and there were hand sanitising stations EVERYWHERE. After all the ride exits and in the pathways in the parks and entrance to shops etc etc. They even had staff members walking around holding up signs reminding people to maintain social distancing which I thought was great.

All in all, a fantastic day out as a family, we will definitely be doing it again, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone even during these times.

We visited 6th and 7th Aug 2020 and had two fantastic days. Weather was glorious so make sure you pack some swimwear for the little ones to use muddy puddles splash park!! Peppa pig world was busy as expected, but it’s down to adults to socially distance and keep the space between your family and the next which we did. Follow the guidelines set out yourself and you will be fine such as face coverings inside shops, restaurants et . Queue times did vary depending on which ride but nothing was too long that we avoided. We paid for early entry to meet Peppa the second day, whilst the children couldn’t touch Peppa or George or daddy or mommy pig, the staff played games and took family pics of us with the characters socially distanced which was great. We had 30 minutes to then enjoy the rides before the park opened to the public and this was perfect as we got to go on the rides again before the queues began (highly recommend). Today the weather was so hot we spent most our time in the splash park as it was very hot for the little ones and we felt sorry for those who had just arrived queueing for the rides. Highly recommend Paultons Park and will be back to visit again. I recommend taking your own picnic as there are so many lovely places to sit and eat and just enjoy the grounds. We stayed in botley park hotel and again that was great, in would suggest booking in advance the swimming pool as this gets booked up quick but lovely staff who let us in even though we hadn’t booked. No complaints what so ever we have two very happy children 💗💙

My husband, 2 children (3&9) and myself booked our tickets a couple of weeks in advance and so were determined to go today despite the weather forecast which proved correct - torrential rain all day. We took 2 changes of clothes each and brollies - accepting of the fact we would get wet. We packed a picnic to save money at lunchtime which we had no issue eating outside under a covered area outside the main restaurant.

The day was well organised with the staff directing and parking us in every other space to aid socially distancing, advising the 2 metre rule (following this is up to individuals) and providing plenty of handwashing and sanitiser stations. They cleaned the rides thoroughly every so often which nobody seemed to mind waiting a few minutes for.
When the log flume broke down in the afternoon, staff were calm and reacted quickly and efficiently to escort people down off the top of the ride, it was fixed quickly and people were allowed back on.

The longest wait we had for a rise all day was about 35 minutes for flight of the pterasaur before lunch, in the afternoon most rises were no queue at all.

Overall, a well organised, safe day out - a huge well done and thankyou to the staff who also had to work in the atrocious weather!!

Perfect family day out!

Large variety of rides with several awesome rollercoasters, a log flume, swings, racing cars, Peppa Pig World for the little ones, a zoo with plenty of animals to see and gorgeous gardens to explore.

I took my 19 year old girlfriend and 12 year old sister and we had an amazing time. We booked on a weekend in the June half-term online. The park wasn’t even particularly busy and queues for most rides were anywhere from 10-25 minutes. Our favourite rides were the dinosaur rollercoasters in the Lost Kingdom and we’d recommend doing these first whilst all the families run off to Peppa Pig World! The park is visually stunning, and there were times when I felt like I was walking around a nature reserve! If you get to Paulton’s in time for thé 10:00am opening you’ll able to ride everything you want. There was a lot of congestion coming into the park so leave plenty of time to get there, although once at the gates there is not much of a queue to get in.

Paulton’s were good at sticking to Covid regulations, but they weren’t overly controlling
or over the top about the situation which was really awesome. No compulsory mask wearing on the rides or outdoors.

Food options were amazing. You would often expect just burger and chips from a theme park but Paulton’s have everything, with many different restaurants across the park. There was a lot of vegan options to choose from, such as vegetable pasties, curry, soup and dairy free ice cream. If you prefer to save money with a picnic, the gardens are huge and quiet for you to enjoy your lunch!

Rides began to close from 17:30-18:00. I’d recommend going on thé water ride at Peppa
Pig world last for a relaxing end to the day! Paulton’s keep their gates open until 19:00 so if you want to wind down in the play park or in the gardens there’s plenty of time to do that!

Thanks for an awesome day out Paulton’s! Keep up the good work and I hope everyone else enjoys your awesome park!

After visiting Peppa pig world last year for my daughters 2nd birthday (couldn’t fault the rides etc, daughter loved it) I had bought 4 tickets, and they had taken payment twice, so I had ended up paying for 8 tickets and they’re not cheap! The lady at the help desk said it would be refunded straight away, which it wasn’t. When I phoned up I spoke to a very rude girl. I then received an email apologising about what happened and was given 2 complimentary tickets to use within a year.

So we were planning to bring our daughter back again for her 3rd Birthday. But then obviously covid happened, I am very high risk with health issues, and also have a newborn baby. So we are still isolating as much as we can to keep ourselves safe. Which I thought the park would encourage. I contacted them and explained the situation, and asked as they were closed for a number of months during the pandemic, and it is not my fault in the slightest, if our tickets could be extended at all so that my daughter doesn’t miss out on more than she already has done this year.

They have refused to extend the tickets. Now I think this is disgraceful as I thought they would be more sympathetic to the situation, and I also thought they would want everyone who visits their park so be as safe as possible. It makes me wonder what their covid and social distancing rules and regulations are, if this is their attitude. I also don’t understand why it makes a difference to them what month I return, refusing to extend the tickets means they will be missing out on custom in the long run, as they will be losing the money we would be spending whilst we’re there, and also our yearly visits for our daughters birthdays! She now has to miss out on even more than she already has this year, and I’m disgusted with the impersonal approach Paultons Park have for their customers. Since I have last emailed them they have completely ignored me which is unbelievably rude.

The park it’s self is great, the staff and customer care is shocking.

Dear Charlotte B Thank you for your latest Trip Advisor review regarding Paultons and we are sorry to see that you have again rated the Park with a low grading. Correspondence and telephone conversations on this matter between yourself and the Park's offices dates back to October 2019 when two sets of tickets were purchased through the website in error. We were pleased to arrange a refund promptly on your arrival at the Park the next day, when this was brought to light, back on to your card. As we hope you can appreciate, however, it does take 3-5 working days for the funds to return to accounts which is out of our control. We were pleased to provide you with 2 x complimentary tickets by way of apology, valid for just over a year, in light of the bank fees that you had incurred. Whilst the fault was not our own, the tickets were freely offered as a gesture of goodwill in order to restore your faith in the Park and our intentions. Whilst we fully appreciate the fact that the Park was closed from 21st March to 3rd July inclusive due to Coronavirus, the complimentary tickets offered were valid for a visit during our opening dates in November and December 2019, together with February, March, July, August, September and October 2020. We can only apologise for your disappointment with regards to us being unable to assist with the extension of complimentary tickets under the provision of which tickets are issued and we thank you for your comments. Please be assured that a copy of your review and feedback has been shared with the Park's Senior Management Team. As communicated in our most recent email, we do very much hope that we may be able to welcome you to Paultons again sometime in the future. Kind regards Paultons Park

We spent the weekend at Paulton’s park with our 5 year old daughter. There is a great variety of rides across the whole park - including Peppa Pig World which was the main reason for our trip.
Our first day (Saturday 5th Sept) was extremely disappointing. We arrived at 10am and headed straight to PP world, bearing in mind the park had just opened the doors there was already a 25 minute wait on majority of rides. This quickly escalated to 55 minutes+. The park was so busy. We managed 3 or 4 of the rides and quickly escaped to the other areas of the park which were much quieter.
Day 2 we decided to miss PP world all together as it was impossible to socially distance with so many people queuing. We had a much better day visiting the other attractions.
There are signs up saying you need to wear a mask indoors, however this isn’t enforced.
There are plenty of hand sanitiser stations dotted around the park.
Staff walk around with signs asking you to socially distance, however I didn’t see anyone enforcing people to give space
I didn’t see a single ride being cleaned the whole time we were there
We ate in the restaurant just by the entrance, and whilst pricey (£40+) for 3 small meals and a drink the food was great, and a great selection. Service was super quick too

Overall, it was a great weekend however extremely disappointed we didn’t get to experience PP world in its entirety.
Our 5 year old absolutely loved it (oh and beware of the volume of wasps that like to linger around the queues!!!)

Dear laurencarpenter90, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience at Paultons Park, Home of Peppa Pig World. Please be assured that we are very aware of our responsibilities with regards to social distancing and are currently running at a reduced capacity of up to 50% for a normal Summer's day here at Paultons. All operational changes to the park have been made in light of government advice for our industry. As you can appreciate, some rides are more popular than others which can sometimes lead to a longer queue time depending on the ride, especially those located in Peppa Pig World. We recommend that guests who wish to avoid queues head to this popular area of the park slightly later in the day. You are also able to utilise the queue times function on our digital screens and official park app to best plan your day and avoid long queues. This is a feature that many guests utilise during their visit and feedback very positively regarding. With regards to the cleaning of rides, attractions and facilities, Paultons already has first class levels of cleanliness and hygiene and in light of COVID-19 we have further enhanced our protocols to increase the amount of sanitisation we do around the Park. Our rides are regularly sanitised with a barrier product and we installed additional hand washing and hand sanitising stations across the Park, prior to opening on 4th July, for guests to use regularly during a visit, with further units recently installed at all of our rides. We fully appreciate all feedback we receive and will be sure to share this with our Senior Management Team. We hope to welcome you backto Paultons Park one day. Kind regards Paultons Park

Came here for 2 days during half term week and had the best time. We spent very little time in Peppa Pig World as my kids have pretty much outgrown it now (although the youngest did want to go and have a look and ended up going on one of the rides). The park seemed busy but queue times weren’t bad at all, even for the new rides. Longest we queued for a ride was probably around 40 minutes which compared to other theme parks we’ve been to is really good. The selection of rides available for young children is incredible. Particularly the roller coasters which my 8 & 6 year olds really enjoyed as well as us adults. This park is the perfect place to introduce your kids to their first roller coaster, there’s something for kids of any age and bravery level. Storm chaser is probably the most intense out of them all but all their coasters are aimed at kids/families really. We got on many rides multiple times including storm chaser, flight of the pterosaur, cobra, the log flume and i even got a couple of rides on cyclonator (kids not tall enough for that one yet).

The park is so clean and well kept, the new area is absolutely amazing and so well themed. They’re already adding another roller coaster possibly aimed at younger children so that should be good when it opens. There are numerous play areas which are of really good quality, my kids spent time in them and needed coaxing away to go on more rides. They also went in the splash park for a bit on the second day and thoroughly enjoyed themselves so I would definitely recommend bringing swimwear if going in summer. Spent a bit of time looking at the animals, the fennec fox’s are adorable and they have some beautiful birds to see. Penguins are always a hit.

Food was decently priced, cheaper than my local park Drayton Manor and there was much more choice available. Quality was decent, gift shops have a variety of merchandise and not too badly priced as far as theme parks go. I’m so glad we decided to take advantage of the ‘free’ second day, there’s more than enough at Paultons to fill up your time even without really venturing into PPW. It meant we weren’t feeling rushed trying to get everything done on the first day, which we achieved anyway.

This was our second visit, last time was a few years ago and we mainly stayed in PPW and had a great time. This time was even better and we will definitely be returning again. Best family theme park in the uk. I hope they keep investing in themselves whilst maintaining these high standards.

Dear SpaceTraveller17, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a 5 star rating and review. We are really happy to hear that you had 2 excellent days here and managed to fit a lot in even during a busy half term week. Our rides and attractions are varied to try and cater for all ages, and we love to hear of children going on to enjoy some of our coasters as they outgrow Peppa Pig World. It sounds as though you all found rides that you enjoyed immensely. We are also pleased to hear that you enjoyed the attractions that we also have here, such as our beautifully kept gardens, Livestock areas and Splash Zones (a must on a hot day for cooling off). We will certainly look forward to welcoming you back to Paultons for a third visit in the future. Kind Regards, Paultons Park Ltd

We visited paultons base on their video on their website which gave assurances about the safety of visitors. I feel deeply misled, the park was not Covid safe, and I subsequently feel we were put at unnecessary risk for the sake of money for the park.
1) the park claimed to have restricted the number of visitors as you could only buy tickets in advance online.
Reality - the car park was full and people were buying tickets at the gate... Peppa pig work was so full you could barely move for people between rides, you could certainly not keep your distance.
2) the park claimed some of the rides would have virtual queues.
Reality - the app tells you how long the queue is, in the morning it was close to an hour for each ride in Peppa pig world. THERE WAS NO VIRTUAL QUEUE
3) signs and barriers to help encourage social distance.
Reality - there were so many people it was impossible to queue at a distance, paultons limited the number of people on most rides which led to the queues being even longer, I can’t stress how shocked we were by the volume of people.
In the shop there was no attempt to limit the number of people in there. Again it was impossible to keep apart from people.
The park was great and in normal circumstances it should have been great, but right now it simple isn’t safe, so in hindsight I would not have gone, safety does not appear to be their priority

Dear Simon, Thank you for reviewing your day at Paultons Park, Home of Peppa Pig World. As a business that values the safety of guests and staff above all else we are saddened to see that following your visit you decided to rate us just 1*. We can assure you that, in line with government guidance for our industry, our visitor capacity has reduced significantly to ensure that social distancing can be maintained. We monitor queues throughout the park to ensure social distancing is maintained and we respectfully ask that guests always follow our team's advice and also take responsibility for their own actions by keeping their distance from other people. Our Virtual Queue is only running on selected dates and as you would expect with any new system, this is being constantly reviewed in order to improve the guest experience. We are currently making adjustments in light of previous visitor feedback and hope to re-introduce this once any issues are resolved. We are sorry the virtual queue was unavailable on the day of your visit. As you've mentioned, we also have a queue times section within the app, advising guests of queue times around the park to help them best plan their day. As you can appreciate, some rides are more popular than others which can sometimes lead to a longer queue time depending on the ride, especially those located in Peppa Pig World. We recommend that guests who wish to avoid queues head to this popular area of the park slightly later in the day. Our dedicated team of staff have been issued with PPE and have also received specific training so that they remain safe in their duties when interacting with our guests. We have introduced many new measures to ensure that Paultons is a covid secure, safe and enjoyable place to visit. Whilst most of these new protocols are visible, there are also many procedures being carried out behind the scenes. We'd like to take the final opportunity to thank you for your comments and once again assure you that our top priority is to ensure the park remains safe for guests and staff at all times. We will also ensure your thoughts are shared with our Senior Management Team. Kind regards Paultons Park

This place has something for everyone!
Ages in our group were 62, 40, 39, 35, 32, 10, 07, 05 and 2 and there really was something for us all to do.
The little ones love Peppa Pig world and grown ups could go on with them so it was very safe.
The 7 and 10 year old enjoyed all the big roller coasters and chair swings and all of us loved the log flume ride.
The app sis great and gives all the queuing times although we often found them to be shorter than advertised.
There are beautiful well kept gardens and mature trees, two different sized splash parks that the kids loved (remember to take an extra set of clothes).
Everywhere is VERY clean and and there are lots of hand sanitiser's around. Masks have to be worn in the shops and toilets. Everyone seems to keep their distance and queue respectfully at 2m distance - overall I was very impressed with their COVID 19 H & S measures.
Food and drink is expensive and not that good however there are free water bottle refill stations around the park which is an excellent idea and very good for the environment.
None of us have ever been before but we are all very impressed and will go again.
Thank you for a lovely day out.
