15 gbp per person is simply not worth it. Not to many animals around (very small populations of any species), lots of dead branches/leafs in the cages. Not to many rare animals around and/or area not really well organised to spot animals. Lots of construction going on. Compared to other other countries, this was a really bad experience. Normally a... More

This is a well-laid out park, with walking areas as well as paddocks through which one can drive. The animals all look very healthy and well cared for, with ample space, unlike many zoos. We couldn't see all the animals, as some are so shy (eg the wolves and the wolverine), but that's normal. The young lady keeper who delivered... More

A brilliant day was had by all, beautiful animals in a beautiful environment being managed by a great team. We will be back and are already looking forward to it.

We attended here along with our 1 and a half year old and although she slept through the initial driven part of the trip we knew we were able to go round again later. Although there is a lot of improvements ongoing we were delighted we were able to see pretty much all of the parks main attractions including polar... More

Friendly staff and lovely animals who are well cared for. Only thing I was disappointed with was the start of the drive through bit after the polar bears was pointless. Nothing seen just a very bumpy road. :(

Just gets better and better every year we visit! We have at long last seen the Arctic Fox (usually hiding as very shy) and we even managed to see the two Snow Leopards which are new to the park this year. They are amazing animals. Feeding time for the two male Polar Bears was the highlight of our visit though... More

Simple. Do not book online. Tickets are non-refundable and unless you advise them within that day, you cannot change booking date. If something happens to you while on the way to the park and you try to change ticket date the very next day, then you can consider your money lost. Online T&C do not mention that you have to...

This was our second visit to this great wildlife park. Loved seeing the polar bears playing in the pond. The long walk up to see Victoria the female polar bear was worth it. Was fun watching the snow monkeys being fed. A very enjoyable day out.

We had a lovely day out at the Wildlife park with our 4 children aged 4-11. There is a bias towards native animals. My favourite was the wildcats, which we saw being fed, but others include wolves, owls and capercaillie.Non-native animals include tigers, red pandas and polar bears. The park is designed in a compact layout, which cuts down long... More
