We could not take a holiday in Dorset without visiting Peppa Pig World. Our daughters have grown up with that little pig and her antics, and I have to confess, my husband and I were more than a little excited about visiting a family theme park with our little darlings. We had a day out at Paulton’s Theme Park, and spent most of that day in Peppa Pig World with the children’s idols, and another portion of the day exploring the Lost World of dinosaurs and beasts.
Paulton’s Theme Park was definitely worth the money. I will make it clear right now that we paid full price for family entry. We had no discounted tickets or special offers, and yet I maintain that it is worth the cost. The park is very bright and cheerful, and while it has several large, adult thrill rides, it caters very well for younger children. My husband enjoyed all of the big rides that he went on, we all enjoyed the family rides in Peppa Pig World, and our daughters had endless fun in the splash zones and soft play areas.
I was also very impressed with the wildlife at Paulton’s Theme Park. The large gardens offer a welcome break from rides and commercialism, and we took some time to explore beneath the trees when we needed a little shade in the afternoon sun. We also marvelled at the captive exotic birds on the park. All in all, it was a great day out. Yes, it was expensive, but we budgeted for it within our holiday, and we spent a lot less on other days to balance it out. Most importantly, we made precious memories with our daughters.
