Tenby – 1 minute mission

Tenby is a beautiful walled seaside town in Pembrokeshire, South Wales. The town celebrates 2.5 miles of sandy beach, making it a favourite destination for families looking for a fun filled UK holiday. The hub of Tenby is the picturesque harbour, that welcomes visitors all year round but is especially bustling during summer time. Families can enjoy their days building sandcastles at the beach and couple can enjoy long breezy walks along the fantastic Pembrokeshire coastline. The harbour and the centre of town are packed full of bars, restaurants and shops, with something to suit all age and tastes.

The hidden gem that Tenby has up its sleeve is Folly Farm, home to one of the largest fully functioning vintage fairground in the world. The farm started out as a traditional dairy farm and has since turned into a labour of love, with the family of owners achieving their ambition in establishing one of the top family destinations in the UK. Farms and funfairs have a long shared history as farmers used to use hiring fairs as a means of finding people to work their land. The vintage fair originally started off as hobby, locating and restoring fairground rides that were childhood favourites and letting others enjoy the pleasure. The fair is now Europe’s largest undercover funfair and rivals some of the best vintage funfairs in the world. Families flock to the fair to enjoy a ride on the Dodgems or the Waltzer plus there is also traditional entertainment for all the family, with everything from cabaret dancers to fire eaters and flame throwers.

Folly farm is also home to Folly Zoo and Jolly Barn and Farm, where children can discover a wide array of animals. There is an education centre for families and when you want to let your hair down there is an indoor and outdoor adventure playground, with all the modern facilities you would expect on a family holiday. Children can also take part in a special zoo keeper experience, where they follow a zoo keeper for the day, feeding the animals and looking after their houses. There is a great restaurant on site, serving up healthy dishes made from local products and food from the farm plus there are many great family restaurants and hotels in Tenby to look after the whole family.

Let Tenby share their special secret and enjoy all the fun of the fair on the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast.
