Coast of the Island, situated on the outskirts of the pretty yachting village of Seaview, you will discover this hidden gem, the Isle of Wight's leader in hands-on wildlife experiences and ranked Number 1 out of 98 Isle of Wight Attractions on Trip Advisor!

Our licensed ' Seaview Bay ' cafe serves locally sourced ingredients such as fresh Bembridge crab sandwiches accompanied with a chilled glass of wine or relax on our outdoor patio areas with stunning views. Home made light lunches and delicious strawberry cream teas feature on the menu together with an extensively stocked gift shop with a ' new refurbished look ' for 2014! Personal, bespoke V.I.P. Packages include one-on-one encounters with penguins where meeting ' Dippy' the famous Isle of Wight penguin has to be top of your bucket list! Have a private meeting with the 'maddest mischievous meerkat mob' or book a behind the scenes Keeper For A Day or Junior Wildlife Experience - the ultimate wildlife treat! You can never be too spoilt!

Spending the day at this wildlife centre was a pleasure. Everything was clean, the staff were helpful, and the animals and birds, well, what can I say? Totally brilliant!! Feeding all the birds, scratching the pigs tummy, stroking the albino wallabies, I could go on. The tea room was clean, as were the loos, and the food was tasty and... More

Having visited this great park in the past, we were really disappointed today when we arrived to the chaos in the car park. It's far too small for the number of visitors, not to mention the fact that people dump their cars at their own convenience in the most awkward of places. It reached a point where the cars were...

This has to be one of the best attractions on the Isle of Wight. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted by many ducks, geese etc and all through the park you are able to get up close to the variety of animals. It is great to be able to feed them at the times dedicated to each animal... More

What a brilliant day out; greeted by hundreds of ducks as you enter which you have the opportunity to feed if you purchase duck feed at the entrance, then onto the penguin show which was not only interesting but adorable and fun! You get the opportunity to feed them sardines too which is great! Lots of other animals, birds and... More

We were bombarded by ducks and geese the minute we stepped inside. They tend to follow you around the park, especially if you have a bag of food available at the entrance. An attractive very interactive place to visit. Our daughter loved being able to feed both the penguins and the parrots. There were some very entertaining animal talks and... More

One of my favourite places to visit. Small animal zoo where interaction with animals is often encouraged.my husband organised for me to go on one of their 'wild dates' which included lunch and the chance to spend the morning with one of the keepers feeding the animals. Thoroughly enjoyable day.

We came here for an afternoon as we'd seen it advertised in the ferry brochure. Despite living on the Island as a child I'd never visited it in it's previous form as the flamingo park - so was interested in what they had added. It's not too difficult to find and the staff are very welcoming on the entrance. There... More

Visited here for the first time with our 3.5year old son. It is just a few miles outside of Ryde and makes for a mini adventure when coming from the Hovercraft. The park is great for young children and the ducks which great you on the way in are amazing. Our son really enjoyed being swamped by hungry ducks, there... More

A lovely time, lots of hands on things to do. We really enjoyed every minute. The wallaby encounter is ace, the café is tasty, the staff are freindly. Very affordable at £30 for a family. Not to be missed if you are in the area!
