This is by far the best adventure and experience location we could have chosen for a day out during the holidays with our 2 year old, her townie mum and dad and a grandad that generally does not like "attractions"
Folly Farm is easy to reach (aside from the hard-core car park which is tough on tired feet, toddlers and pushchairs alike). The place is kept impeccably clean, wide open pathways, lots of grassy areas and picnic options.
We loved the whole environment from old fashioned fair, to ferris wheel, the JCB's and sandpits, the giraffes and the indoor play zone. Food is snack food and not brilliant but at less than £5 for a baguette and drink lunch we thought it was fair value.
One small crisis for us was the ease with which our granddaughter escaped from the soft play area; our fault for not supervising her every move, even though we sad extremely close to the zone.We had a very scary few moments and she had run off across a vast, busy area before we found her. Perhaps a gate system would add a little more security and it was not clear who would of helped or what you do about lost kids or lost parents....
Anyway the whole place was a total success; townie dad loved being there, townie mum adored the penguins, grandad went on the ferris wheel and I fell in love with a giraffe......ooh and the donuts were a late bonus treat as we left.
