What a great day out. Lots of animals to see and you can interact and stroke the small monkeys and wallabies. Inside activities for small children also. Cheaper to take a picnic than buy food there. Went to Edinburgh zoo and thought this was much better.

Brought our baby here for her 1st birthday. Hard time of year for birthdays I think, and the 13th of feb was especially cold and windy! We arrived at 10:30 and it was very quiet which I think is good (get to see everything and no ques!) It was a great little place-remember folks it's a wildlife park-not zoo. Saying... More

A great visit to a much improved attraction. Since our last visit the entrance and many of the walkways have had much needed work carried out on them. A wonderful place to visit and the addition of the polar bear is very welcome. Quality of food served is very good but overpriced.

Allow 2-3 hours to walk round the full tour. Animals are well cared for and in good condition. Animals are beautiful and lots of different species all with a... More

A great family day out - a credit to all that work there, staff were very friendly and all areas were spotlessly clean. It was fantastic to see the varied animals and the park is structured well with lots of areas where you can walk through enclosures to be up close to the animals. The educational information displayed on signs... More

Living close to the wildlife park, I don't go as often as expected - mainly due to wanting to go further afield for a day out, and because of this I haven't been since the leopards had just arrived. It is really nice to see how the park has evolved and improved over the years, and how each enclosure is... More

Visiting any outdoor attraction in February is a bit of a gamble but when it's half-term and grand-daughter's birthday you take the risk. It turned out to be a cold but fine day - so it was a busy day and pre-paying the tickets turned out to be a good move (otherwise a long queue). Our route around the site... More

A brilliant day out for all the family. Plenty of animals in their natural habitat. Don't forget to take a picnic as the food can be quite expensive if you're making a day of it.theres plenty of seated areas so no worries on that score.
