Wingham Wildlife Park is set within 26 acres in which we display over 200 different species... That is more than any other zoo in Kent! Including some species not seen anywhere else in zoos in the UK, Europe and even the world! As well as the all important animal collection we have 2 large play areas (both indoors and outdoors, making them fun all year), 2 restaurants (although one may be shut in the winter season) and a wide variety of animal talks, encounters and experiences!

Went here with my husband and 7y/o son on Bank Holiday Monday. It was easy to find and there were parking marshalls which was good. The car park was gravel/grass but I hoped that the park itself would be easier for my wheelchair. The entrance was block paved and we went to pay - it was £42 for the 3... More

crowded, expensive, badly designed, animals in crammed enclosures ... Although we had spent a lot of money to get in (let alone the time and effort to get there) we could not wait to get away. Avoid!

I have never been to a zoo were all the animals are so close you can almost touch them and the... More

An 11th birthday present for our youngest daughter was the Penguin Experience. Although we have annual membership this was still quite expensive, but knowing that the money is well-invested and that my daughter would love the experience I was happy to pay. She loved it...and we loved her loving it! Another fabulous visit to the park with interesting talks and... More

What a fantastic day. The owners have really invested alot of money in this place. How much it has expanded and developed is amazing. The animals cages are so close to you that you can almost touch them, which is great for young children because they get full view of the animals. So much to do for the kids aswell,... More
