Paultons Theme Park is the home of Peppa Pig World, set in 120 acres of scenic parkland with over 60 theme rides and attractions for your family to enjoy. It is located at the edge of the New Forest National Park in Hampshire. Peppa Pig World is the ultimate day out for many toddlers and young children, giving them the chance to hang out and have fun with Peppa, George, Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and many other characters from the much-loved show.
The Peppa Pig World attraction is set over about three acres of Paultons Park. It’s a vibrant wonderland for younger children where everything you see is Peppa Pig-tastic! It can be very busy at weekends during peak season, so if you are visiting with tiny folk in tow, we would recommend a visit midweek to avoid the queues. The Peppa Pig World map is a handy tool for navigating about the attraction.
Here’s the definitive lowdown on how to make the most of your family day out at Peppa Pig World and Paultons Park.
