Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo is a fantastic family day out in Pembrokeshire. This award winning park has a wide range of attractions to enjoy and many creatures to see!

There's so much to do that you may not be able to fit it all into one day... so, one of the best things about your ticket is that you can come back another day (within seven days) free of charge. Bonus!

Zoo animals

You'll find some exotic species you might not see elsewhere, as well as family favourites. There are more than 90 different species, including ocelots, Bactrian camels, lemurs and meerkats. Take a look at the lions, see penguins swimming and gaze at the giraffes. The zoo animals live in award winning enclosures that are designed to give them the best living conditions.

Some of the creatures are endangered and Folly Farm plays a large part in helping to breed them, raise money to help protect animals in the wild and share knowledge with other zoos. Glyndŵr the baby black rhino is the first rhino to be born in Wales. He's part of the Eastern black rhino captive reintroduction breeding programme, to help these endangered species.

Jolly Barn and Farm

There's a huge barn full of fluffy and feathery friends. Children will love getting up close to farm animals, such as goats, different breeds of sheep, pigs and a range of birds, including very cute babies. They can also see red deer, barn owls and llama and cwtch up to rabbits and guinea pigs.

Vintage fairground 

Take a ride on the giant big wheel and enjoy views the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside and sea. There's a vintage fairground with rides that are under cover, so a shower won't spoil your fun. The Mighty Wurlitzer organ completes that fun of the fair experience.

Food and drink

Keep your family fed and watered, with a range of food and drinks available throughout the park. Get stuck into a delicious homemade lasagne at The Hungry Farmer, be tempted by a locally made Cowpots ice-cream at one of the three Dairy Shed's onsite or find the perfect spot to settle down for your own picnic.

Event days

There are a range of fun and varied event days throughout the year, including magic shows, evening concerts and special events like superheroes and pirates day. There are seasonal events too including spooky Halloween fun and a Christmas grotto experience.  Look out for appearances of your favourite TV characters, such as Peppa Pig, Fireman Sam and Thomas the Tank Engine.

Animal experiences and adoptions

It's a really exciting experience to get up close to animals. How do you fancy meeting a rhino? Have a giraffe or penguin eat out of your hand, or enjoy a lion experience. There's even a cuddly toy to take home, making an animal experience a superb gift, as does the animal adoption, with many creatures to choose from.
