Mum thoughtfully gave us Manor Park Season Tickets for Christmas knowing that they will provide us with many fun filled days over the year. Last week we went to pick up our new cards at Manor House Wildlife Park and spent our morning there. Here are a few snapshots taken during our mini day out. I’ve also rounded up ten Pembrokeshire season tickets that you could choose to invest in if you want to pay once and then enjoy free entry all year long to these popular attractions:
Even though we didn’t see all the animals or cover the whole park the kids had a fun morning playing in the huge soft play area, bouncing on the bouncy castle, watching the chickens and goats, walking to see Steve, Lisa and Bryn, the Siamang Gibbons, looking for the Red Pandas, enjoying an alfresco picnic and playing on the tricycle. As we go lots of times over the years we spend our time different ways during every visit- there’s always lots to do!
10 Pembrokeshire Season Tickets
Throughout the year when we visit other Pembrokeshire attractions I often wonder if it would be worthwhile investing in a season ticket so we can return lots more times throughout the year. If you’re considering buying Pembrokeshire Season Tickets take a look at the prices and terms below to decide if they’d be a good purchase for you:
Manor Wildlife Park
Manor Wildlife Park is Wales’ walking safari where you can see White Rhinos, Zebras, Gibbons, Lemurs, Wallabies and so much more. It’s perfect for a walk surrounded by nature and there are lots of play opportunities too.
Day tickets cost: £11.95 (children and concessions) and £13.95 (adults)
Season tickets cost: £23.90 (children and concessions) and £27.90 (adults)
Manor Wildlife Park Season Tickets are “double bubbles” therefore as long as you plan to visit the park more than twice a year they’re definitely worth investing in. The tickets run from 1st January to 31st December so try to buy them early on during the year to make the most of them (having said that we have bought them later in the year during previous years and still managed to fit in lots of visits!).

2. Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo
Folly Farm began as a small family farm day out but has expanded into a zoo and huge adventure park and vintage fair over the years.
Day tickets cost: £10.50 (toddlers >2), £14.50 (3-15 and concessions) and £16.50 adults (save 15% by booking online)
Season tickets cost: £25 (toddlers>2), £40 (children and concessions) and £45 (adults)
Folly Farm say that the annual passes are good value as long as you plan to visit more than twice in a twelve month period. Actually, you could visit three times for the price of an annual ticket if you book online so I think the annual pass is only great value if you plan to visit three times or more. The pass is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. We usually use Tesco Vouchers to pay for a visit to Folly Farm and visit once a year.

3. Oakwood Theme Park
Oakwood Theme Park is the destination for thrill seekers in Pembrokeshire. As well as the adrenaline rides such as Megafobia, Vertigo and Speed there are also attractions for all the family to enjoy such as Neverland.
Day tickets (Flexi tickets) cost: £20.25 (children, 3-12), £22.95 (concessions) and £30.15 (adults)
Annual passes cost: £60.75 (children, 3-12) , £68.85 (concessions) and £90.45 (age 13 +)
Annual Passes are perfect for unlimited entry on all park opening days and include all events. Special events for Annual Pass holders are run throughout the year. Annual Passes are valid for one year from the date of purchase. As you can see you’d need to visit the park three times to make it worthwhile but if your family is roller-coaster crazy this might be the season ticket for you. Oakwood is currently closed for winter and will reopen in April 2019.

4. Heatherton World of Activities
Heatherton World of Activities is an adventure park with a wide range of activities from rides for the little ones to Go Karting and High Ropes. It’s free to park and enter Heatherton but you need tokens to pay for the activities. They don’t offer a seasonal pass but you can buy Family Group Passes that are valid for six months.
Individual Day Passes: 6 credits £12.95, 8 credits £16.50, 10 credits £19.75
Group Passes (valid for 6 months): 30 credits £59.50, 40 credits £78.50, 60 credits £115, 100 credits £185
As you can see the more passes you buy the less expensive the cost per token. I always work out roughly how many tokens we will need during our visit and then buy the best credit pack and the Group Passes usually work out best for us.

5. Clerkenhill Adventure Farm and Frizbee Gold Course
Clerkenhill is a lovely adventure farm for the whole family, the kids love the play opportunities, especially the large wooden castle.
Day tickets: £6.50 (Children and Senior Citizens), £7.50 (Adults)
Season tickets: £15.50 (Children and Seniors), £18.50 (Adults)
If you’re planning to visit Clerkenhill more than twice this year then a season ticket is very good value. Remember Clerkenhill closes for Winter so you’ll have to wait until Easter 2019 (this gives you time to save up). It could make a lovely Easter experience gift instead of more Easter Eggs!
I realise that I haven’t ever blogged about our days out in Clerkenhill so we’ll have to make a visit this Easter too!

6. Scolton Manor
Scolton Manor is a Victorian Country House and country park with woodland walks, sculpture trails and play parks. The Country House only opens during peak seasons but the country park is open all year around to explore. On certain days they host special events so do check before visiting.
Daily parking: Up to 3 hours £2.50, 4 hours £3.00, All day £3.50
Annual Parking Pass: £20
(2019 prices for admission to the house have not yet been confirmed)
So if you’re planning to visit Scolton Manor more than eight times the annual pass is worth it. We used to go to Scolton Manor frequently but didn’t visit as much last year. It’s a great place to visit whether you want a whole day out or just to pop in for a walk or play in the park.

7. The Dinosaur Park Tenby

The Dinosaur Park describe their season tickets as “double and a bit”. If you love dinosaurs (and rides) and plan to visit more than twice then a season ticket will be good value. If you only plan to make two visits in one year you could make the most of their £6 return during 6 days offer. The Dinosaur Park season ticket runs from 23rd February – 2nd November 2019.

8. Hilton Court Castle and Gardens
Hilton Court is an old Victorian Courtyard, surrounded with stunning gardens. Take a woodland walk and find the different wooden playhouses.

Seasonal ticket pass: £4 (children 4-13), £9 (concessions), £10 (adults) and £22 (family)
We always find it such good value visiting Hilton Court. We can bring a picnic and spend all day there as the kids love playing in the playhouses for hours. Some people just visit Hilton Court to walk their dogs in beautiful surroundings. If you’re planning to visit more than twice the season pass is great value- especially the family season pass.They also have a current special Facebook offer (click above for more information).

9. Pembroke Castle
Pembroke Castle, a medieval castle is well known for being the birth place of Henry VII. It’s a fascinating site to explore and they run tours and special events too.
Day tickets: £6/£6.50* (children 3-15 and seniors 60+) and £7/£7.70* (adults)
Annual passes (local membership): £6.60 (children 3-15 and seniors) and £7.70 (adults)
Annual passes (full membership): £12 (children 3-15 and seniors) and £14 (adults)
*with gift aid
As you can see a local annual pass costs just over the price of one visit. I really believe that if you visit once you should invest in this as it will encourage you to return again (bring proof of Pembrokeshire residence). Tourists get a good deal too, as long as they plan to visit more than twice an annual pass is a great investment.

We’re so lucky in Pembrokeshire that there are many free days out to enjoy. We can also save money by investing in season tickets to our favourite attractions. Perhaps you will choose a different park to purchase an annual pass from each year or your favourite parks will change as the kids grow older? Before you visit an attraction check if you can save money by purchasing a special pass first, I know many of the castles offer a similar deal to Pembroke Castle. There are also national memberships that can save you money too (such as the National Trust).
Do you invest in Pembrokeshire annual passes? Which is the best deal for your family?
