Visited today 19/9... Firstly let me say, I love animals more than I like most people.... so this might be slightly biased. The attraction has 2 parts, a part you drive around and then a part you walk around (sounds simple). In the driving part there are mainly docile bison, deer etc... its not until you walk around you get... More

We've visited 3 times and have never been disappointed. Every single enclosure has something to see and most recently we were lucky enough to see every resident. Polar bear and tiger feeds are a must see and the views around the park are breathtaking. Cafe has a limited selection but good quality and reasonably priced. Hopefully the next time we... More

We did not really know what to expect but were delighted to find such a fantastic place to visit. The safari drive whetted your appetite to see the animals at closer quarters and we were amazed to simply the other side of a glass panel from a full grown tiger. The polar bears playing in the water were fantastic and... More

We are regular visitors to the wildlife park, the children love the animals and the play parks, it is well laid out and a lovely walk. Views are beautiful. Lunch in the cafe was up to its usual high standards.

Really good wildlife park. Great views of tigers & polar bears. Only disappointment was driving section, not enough animals in that bit. Would recommend it to people.

We visited this Wildlife Park not really knowing what to expect, perhaps a few scrawny old animals but what a surprise, we had a great day. We spent almost six hours here and loved the feeding sessions with the tigers, polar bears, snow monkeys and Scottish wild cats. The staff were friendly, relaxed and full of interesting information. The animals... More

Second visit and will definitely be back. I come from near Edinburgh and compared to the zoo in the city this place is by miles better and Edinburgh zoo could take pointers from here. See some amazing animals and make sure you see some of the animals getting fed and listen to the fun talks from staff. Great day for... More

Beautiful setting. It was easy to imagine all these animals in their historic environment roaming the plains in northern Europe

Have been a regular visitor over the 6 or 7 years and have seen the park flourish and grow into what it is now. The enclosures are great, really impressed with the snowy owls, got room to fly now. Dont expect to see the beaver....a bit elusive!! New coffee shop is great, my only gripe is the price of food... More
