Charlotte, a member from our community group in Sheffield, recently went to Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park. Here’s some lovely photos from her day and details about the park, rides and more!
Paultons Park is in Ower, near Romsey, in Hampshire, England. S051 6AL. It has 70 rides and attractions and is home to Peppa Pig World.
Prices of Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park
Peppa Pig World is inside Paulton’s Park, a big theme park, with expensive prices! So you have to buy a theme park ticket to access Peppa Pig World; there’s no separate tickets.
Buy tickets online for a small discount rather than on the day. Ticket prices are around £30 an adult and depends on height. Any child under 1 metre of age go free.
As of writing this, Paultons Park website prices are under reconstruction and the 2019 season not available to access at this time of writing (December 2018). However, last year prices were:
£31.95 per day ticket – Adult or child over 1 metre.
£27.25 per day ticket – Adult or child over 1 metre, booked online in advance.
Family tickets are available (family of 3, 4, 5, etc.,) with discounts available, and short breaks with early booking offers are good value for money starting from £189 for family of 4 for 2 day entry.
“We visited Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park in June when my daughter Lyla was 2 years and 8 months.
We stayed at the Southampton Eastleigh Travelodge the night before, we booked in advance and paid £35 for a family room which was really good value and only a 15 minute drive from Paultons Park. I’d recommend a stay there if you don’t want to travel there and back in a day. There is a Harvester restaurant on site which is ideal for breakfast.
We pre booked our tickets for Paultons Park to save money. The saving is small but it’s worth doing. We visited on a Monday during the school term and it was still very busy. I spoke to a family who had an annual pass and they said it’s very busy June-Sept due to holiday makers.
We got on all of the rides and had a photos with Peppa and George, but we didn’t get to the soft play area or to use the splash park. There is so much to do in one day, just in Peppa Pig World alone!
We didn’t look round the rest of the park so I’d probably book a 2 day pass if we returned. We arrived as the park opened and stayed until 3.30pm as Lyla was really tired and we hadn’t taken the pushchair.
Rides at Peppa Pig World
Include: Grampy Rabbits Sailing Club: a log flume/water style ride, Queen’s Flying Coach Ride: a monorail that travels around the new area of the park, George’s Dinosaur Adventure: sit-on dinosaur ride on rails, Daddy pigs car ride, Grandpa pigs mini train, Grandpa pigs boat trip, Peppa’s big balloon ride, Miss Rabbit’s helicopter flight and Windy Castle ride.
2 new rides opened at Peppa Pig World in 2018: Grampy rabbit’s sailing boat and the Queen’s flying coach ride.
Jenny from Midwife & Life blog went with her family & loved the new rides. She said the Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Boat ride… “… has bumpers on the side and floats gently and spins slowly around the river ride, where you can see different scenes played out, sounds emanate from the characters and there’s the odd squirt! A tunnel makes for added interest and then you glide towards the end of the ride. In all it lasts for about 5 minutes. The boat can fit four people comfortably. You can see the monorail and castle from the boat”.
Jenny‘s little ones loved the Queen’s Flying Coach Ride, but warned if your little ones don’t like heights to bear that in mind… “It is up high so if you or your little ones aren’t keen on heights bear it in mind. Again it’s suitable for all ages. You get to climb up the Queen’s castle walls which is very exciting. You get your own ‘carriage’ which fitted the five of us no problem. You get a commentary on the way round and you can see all of Peppa Pig World”.
Not only that but there are another 3 themed worlds at Paultons Park: Lost Kingdom, Critter Creek and Little Africa and around 70 rides.
More things to do at Peppa Pig World

Pros & Cons for Peppa Pig World
Most of the rides didn’t have height restrictions.
The queuing times are shown clearly for each ride, and you can download an app which also shows the queue times if you don’t want to walk across to a ride to look.
A great atmosphere for any Peppa fan.
Lyla loved the music on entry and how much the theme park looks like the TV programme.
A great variety of rides.
Lovely play areas.
Lots of seating that can be used if taking a picnic.
Busy in the summer. I’m glad we didn’t take my younger son as he would have got very fed up in the queues.
You cannot queue up with pushchairs so baby carriers are a must!
Expensive if taking the whole family.
The weekend packages offered directly through Paultons Park are pricey and can be booked separately much cheaper.
Long waits for the toilets, as you can imagine with lots of young children visiting, so maybe take a travel potty!
The shops on site are expensive. A Peppa toy that costs £10 in high street shops costs £13 there.
More tips for you from parents who have been to Peppa Pig World
Sarah from Boo, Roo & Tigger Too: “The little ride on children’s rides that you usually have to pay for in supermarkets and other parks are free. Which is fantastic, especially when older siblings are on bigger rides, the little ones can still go on a ride whilst they are waiting”.
Emma Reed: “Find out when the meet and greets happen with Peppa and George because the queues get really big for this and little people can get very impatient! If you spot them going in to change or check the boards and remember the timings get in that queue as early as you can”.
Jenny from Midwife & Life recommends you check out the rest of the park which has rides for all ages, including older kids and adults. Their family favourites were, “the bouncy castle and trampolines, the gardens, the cat-o-pillar rollercoaster, water kingdom splash park, dinosaur encounter, tractor and train ride, percys play park and the victorian carousel”.
