I have visited Wingham Wildlife Park a few times and have enjoyed my visits very much each time. It is always somewhere I look forward to returning. Although it is not as large as Howletts and other zoos, it still has some great animals to see such as tigers, lions, jaguars, cheetahs, meerkats and lots of different types of birds.... More

This was my first visit to Wingham with my 8 and 6 year Old. We had a fantastic day! It is such a good Zoo, we went to the Penguin talk and the otter feeding and the Staff seemed to really know the animals and were happy to answer any questions. The lady in the Education centre talking about the... More

We visited today with our 9 & 11 year old. This was our first visit to WWP. It was clear to see that work was being done to the park from the start. On the whole it didn't cause a problem. Apart from the lack of a second cafe. The one in the play area was chaotic, and a little... More

We have visited many zoo's but I think this one is more personal and a favourite, maybe as it is family run. The animals there are great and they have a walk through enclosure. All the staff seem really knowledgeable and know their animals very well. I have read the negative reviews about staff attitudes but have never experienced this... More

Visited in school easter holiday, the park itself was very busy. There is plenty to do and see here, my children aged 2,6 and 8 loved every minute. You can get close up to see the HUGE variety of animals housed here, admittedly you do not get gorillas, elephants or giraffe, but for a park at the smaller end of... More

I've been here several times over the years since the 1990's when it was just a bird park, and it's been lovely to watch it grow. It's become more orderly, but still retains a pleasing amateurishness dating back to when the only animals were unwanted and homeless, ranging from pigs, goats etc to a sad and lonely alligator - it's...

Dear 377Sarah377, Thank you very much for your review, it is always great to hear from people who have had a chance to see the park grow and evolve over the past few years. As you have mentioned there is a new reception building under construction, and this is just one of the many projects we still have ahead of... More

This place looks like a bomb site, I know that the place is in a state of transition but I can see beyond this. Staff appear half-hearted, animals look crammed in and many look depressed. It cost £13 a head to enter this Beirut of the Zoo world. The mind totally boggles at the positive ratings. All I can suggest... More

Dear Donfowler, We were very disappointed to read this review. This is not because of the poor rating as we are always open to hearing peoples views on the park (both positive and negative), however more so as this purely seems like a malicious and dare I say immature attack. I invite people to take a look at the parks... More

The sun was shining and my 10 month old son enjoyed his day so much that he didn't want his afternoon nap. We saw lots of animals and had a lovely portion of chips and a coffee in the little cafe. There was a lot of building work going on so things looked a little chaotic and tatty but that's... More

Dear lel1978, Thank you very much for your kind review, it is great to hear that everyone enjoyed their day out with us and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

We love it here, and have a season ticket, well worth the money, as we visit very frequently. No matter when we visit there is always something new, Love the lemur walk through, and would happily spend hours just watching the antics when new people come in...... as they seem to like shoe laces! Have been coming to the park... More

Dear JoanHagan2013, Thank you very much for your review and on-going support, it is great to hear from people who have watched the park grow over the past few years.
