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, if you are planning on visiting more than once, it might be cheaper to get an annual family pass. Tickets and optional extras like fairground tokens or ‘ride-all-day’ wristbands can be purchased on the day, or you can buy them online. Visit Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo for details on all tickets. 

Zoo animals

As well as family favourites, you'll find some exotic species you might not see elsewhere. There are more than 90 different species, including 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. Folly Farm has been approved by the Rare Breed Survival Trust for their efforts and contribution to conserving rare breeds of livestock.

Glyndŵr the black rhino calf was 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 alpacas, 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 cinema organ completes that fun of the fair experience.
