Review: Winter Fun at Folly Farm!

Without fail we always have a fabulous time when we visit Folly Farm, from the funfair to the animals we leave with full hearts and happy faces. We’ve never been during the colder months, so when we planned to visit for this review we were intrigued to see how different it would be during the chilly months of winter.

During the winter months the park opens between 10am-4pm on weekends only (beginning on 11th November this year), we visited during their last longer day (10-5pm) and when we arrived at around 11am the car park was filling up nicely. It was great to see their new entrance and gift shop area, it’s so spacious and full of gorgeous gifts and treats…

We were there for the last day of the Halloween celebrations, but our first stop was the Vintage Fairground! George and Molly love all the games and rides, and the best thing is they’re not too expensive. You can have a go at Hook-a-Duck and other fun games for £1 and you’re guaranteed a little prize. 

 After this we had a bite to eat and then it was time to search for the animals! We loved seeing the bats, tortoises, giraffes, zebras and the new addition of the tapirs…

I really adore how much vast space the animals at Folly Farm have, and after speaking to Tim the keeper last year, we all know how loved and cared for the animals are. 

We wandered around and it didn’t notice the drizzly rain or cooler temperature, it was just so wonderful to see such amazing wildlife and free space for all the beautiful creatures. Of course it was also extra special to see my favourite animals…

Zebras are so stunning and I can’t get enough of looking at them. Here are some other photos of other gorgeous creatures at Folly Farm…

 Of course it wouldn’t be a trip to Folly Farm without seeing our wonderful rhino friends. We also had a read of their information boards whilst we were there and the facts are pretty horrific…

We stumbled upon the Pirates of the Caribbean play park on our way back to the Halloween Craft area. It is beyond awesome and none of us wanted to leave…

Before we ran out of energy we checked out their Halloween craft area and entered the giveaway via the Halloween trail. The crafts and spooky interactive activities were all free and the only extra was face painting (£3) and glitter tattoos £2.50). 

We had an amazing day and nobody wanted to leave! Of course we headed to the shop to get a little treat for the kiddies, there are so many things to choose from and the prices vary from a few pounds upwards. 

Check out our little video from the day…
