We enjoyed our day out! Plenty of Animals to see including Polar Bears and Wolves. A little disappointed that a lot of the animals were missing and sign posts were a little confusing meaning we spent a while looking for things that weren't there and the kids play park could be improved On the whole the day was enjoyed, and...

A bit expensive for all that it is but where else can you see polar bears. The main reserve is a bit sparse but you can be assured of seeing different animals each time you drive around - we went round 3 times. The rest provides for a nice area to walk around and see some unusual animals. The cafe... More

Met with friends on this nice sunny day. Park was so busy we had to park on the grass at the edge of the car park. Used Tesco vouchers for entry. Downside was that it was so sunny a lot of the animals were sheltering from the heat. It was difficult to spot them, even in the drive through part.... More

Defiantly worth a visit, prices very reasonable too! It's great the car park is in the centre of the park and you can access different routes to different animals from this point along with the cafe , shop and facilities! Cafe was lovely, not too much choice but great quality food. We signed up for a tour instead of driving... More

Fantastic day out for all, really enjoyed the animals and the drive along the enclosure was really good. Nice cafe, good gift shop and a play park adds to the experience. Will be going back with the kids this time around.

A friend advised that we book our tickets in advance, and this sped up our entry to a very busy place (no need to print tickets - email on my phone was scanned). We also looked at the feeding times and planned the day around them. There's a drive around reserve and areas to walk around too. Highlights for us... More

HWP is particularly special to my Dad and I as we have a bench at the Wolf enclosure dedicated to my younger brother who passed away in 2011. The park is very well laid out and lots to see. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
