Places to Visit
Folly Farm has much more to it than the name suggests, as you would expect there is of course a farmyard filled with friendly animals, but also bundled in with the farmyard fun is a fabulous zoo, an impressively large vintage style funfair plus loads of adventure play areas for the kids to burn off all of that excess energy. The farmyard is probably the most popular attraction here because at Jolly Farm visitors can get up close to all kinds of farmyard animals, and if you time your visit right, their babies. There are a good variety of animals from hens to horses and there are many opportunities to feed and pet the animals too, all the while being entertained by the larger than life characters of Folly Farm which roam around the venue. Parents will enjoy the vintage funfair and the zoo is appealing to just about everyone, so have fun.
