Farmer Palmer's Farm Park

Bournemouth Echo:

"Absolutely Spooktacular!" - ★★★★★

I brought my family to Farmer Palmer's Halloween Half Term Event last year, and it was a scream! The pumpkin picking was a highlight; we found the perfect pumpkins to carve creepy faces. The Soak-a-Spook tractor trailer ride had us in stitches, and my little witch-in-training had a blast at the Witches Race.

What sets this event apart is the way it blends Halloween thrills with the charm of a farm. The animal activities are amazing, we enjoyed them as much as our kids! It's the ideal place for families seeking both spookiness and smiles. We can't wait to return this year!
