Absolutely fantastic worth every penny plenty to see plenty of events during the day. Plenty for children to do see and engage in better than visiting a zoo as u get closer to the animals here. If using the local bus like I did buy your tickets for the park from the driver no queuing upon arrival plus buying your... More

I was looking forward to visiting the Yorkshire Wildlife Park after seeing it advertised numerous times on the television. In my humble opinion, the reality of the Park does not live up to what you see in that television advert. The Park is very large and involves a lot of walking on un-made pathways which are very dusty. I would... More

Visited for a day out with our Grandson and though we had already heard good reports from others, I admit that I did go with expectations not very high. It was great to have those expectations scrapped within minutes of getting into the park, from simple idea's like glass panels on the small animal area's like Meerkats so that children... More

Been twice before with the family but this time's experience was fantastic from start to finish. Brought some cheap tickets on living social for one of the Safari nights and the visit was fantastic value for money. Even more animal attractions and great new playareas. The live entertainment was great as was the bangless fireworks to music! Defo worth a... More

I don't want to call it a zoo as it doesn't feel like a typical zoo and, they don't call themselves a zoo! The enclosures are big, the animals have space to roam, enclosures have had thought put into them to try and mimic their natural environment as much as possible, not much fake grass or fake plants here. I... More

Didn't know the park existed until a few months ago and only live 30 miles away. Excellent day out with plenty to see. Some building work going on as obviously big expansion plans but did not effect our day. Thought they animals were well presented in large enclosures etc. Only negative was lunch in the cafe which was slow in... More

Visited YWP on a midweek afternoon. There was one small school group, but mostly couples and small families but because there is so much space, it didn't feel crowded and it is easy to walk leisurely round from one area to another. The Park is much bigger than we expected and has several picnic areas, lots of clean tables and... More

Went here with a open mind the initial cost of getting in a bit steep but was thoroughly enjoyable, the enclosures are huge and clean the park spread out over a large area so not tripping over other visitors, the tigers were very active jumping in and out of the water and the limas are swinging from trees all around...

Yorkshire Wildlife Park is one of the best zoos we have visited in a long time. The enclosures are stunning but designed so that you can see the animals clearly. The admission price is reasonable. As previously reviewed the café is a little expensive but the food is good. Victor the polar bear is the star of the show and... More

The Zoo was excellent plenty to see & everything easily accessible for children & adults alike. However the Monkey Playhouse Cafe was dreadful. The price for coffee tea & hot chocolate came to £17.00 which would have been fine with waitress service or a tray to carry them. However it was a 'do it yourself' job. They came in cardboard...
