A POPULAR Hampshire theme park is hoping to clear up in national awards later this month.

The Ower-based Paultons Park won top accolades in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for five years running and are hoping to repeat that success in the UK Theme Park Awards 2021.

The site near Romsey, which hosts Peppa Pig World, has been nominated for 12 awards.

The theme park is hopeful to see results for Theme Park of the Year, Best Theme Park for Families (small), Best Theme Park for Toddlers, Best New Attraction and Best Family Coaster.

Other categories they could win in include Best Live Entertainment, Best Animal Experience, Best Food and Drink, Best Merchandise, Best Halloween Event, Best Social Media Engagement, Best Customer Service and Best Value.

Voting will open to the public on July 21 through ukthemeparkawards.com .
