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!

Love this zoo. Big variety of animals. Very compact so not too much walking for older people but animals have enough space. I particularly love the otters and the reptile selection. Can't wait for the chimpanzees to arrive. There's also a fantastic play area for the children outside and another inside, great for wet weather.

Wingham has really expanded in the last few years and now has the largest variety of any zoo in Kent. What I particularly like about this zoo is its accessibility. The site is not overly large, so is easily walkable, and all on one level so should be okay for wheelchair users. There are several other zoos in Kent, however... More

Excellent for a day out with family. Six year old grandson was enthralled with everything. Not so cheap bur very good value as there is plenty to see. Need to allow a good 5 hours for visit. Nice lunch in restaurant good service. Good toilet facilities. Good play areas. Shame some of the animals don't have more space to roam... More

It was either the rare breeds center or wingham. Well wingham won and we all had a great day. The overall layout is very good so that you don't seem to miss out on any of the species on display. The overall cost for a family and nan and grandad was quiet reasonable when you consider that a whole days... More

This is a good place to while away a few hours, but you don't need a whole day, you can do it in a few hours. The most disappointing thing was the quality of the food and the rudeness of the staff in the cafe. Considering it costs just shy of £30 for a few sandwiches; they were a disgrace!... More

This zoo is a pleasure to visit. It is laid out in a way that leads to everywhere without becoming exhausted. There is a great variety of species but the park has a homely feel to the place. Plenty of interaction with the animals. The walk through the lemur enclosure was brilliant. Lemurs all over everyone! The tropical house was... More

We visited here as a family day out and there was only one criticism even though I don't want to. Entry was a little expensive but it helps with feeding the animals eat so didn't mind. A family ticket cost £48 for 2 adults and 2 children. The onsite cafe was on the expensive side with a child's meal cost... More

I bought my boyfriend a penguin experience at Christmas time which he booked the experience for 12th April. He was so excited as he is OBSESSED with the feathered friends! When we arrived, we both got to walk the Penguins around the park - I thought this was fantastic and a good form of exercise for the birds. My boyfriend... More
