Visit Folly Farm Zoo

Go and enjoy Folly Farm Zoo, wonderful place to visit as an adult or child. Amazing adventures, penguin parties, lions, toddler takeovers, cwtch corners, and zoo keeper experiences are all ways to describe Folly Farm today.

Used to be a humble dairy farm to become one of the most exciting places to visit in Wales! It’s a farm and a zoo.

Recently I was able to help feed the penguins – so brilliant to be so close to the penguins. Caroline and Catrin, the main penguin keepers are so knowledgeable, helpful and you can see that they love their penguins.

The penguin chicks will also become accustomed to the water in a custom-built splash pool, as their waterproof feathers grow and they gain confidence in swimming.

They have 5 penguin chicks this year and they are all named after Disney characters – Cogsworth, Bagheera, Abu, Scuttle and Thumper, on account of his feet sticking out of the egg when he was hatching.

Flamingos, giraffes and many other animals and birds to see.
