The trust is set up to protect and promote native species and their habitat. The site reflects this and there are mostly animals that are or were native species in large, natural enclosures. This is the sites major disadvantage - the animals are very able to get comfortable and hide. Approximately half of the enclosures appeared to be empty of... More

I'm a big fan of Wildwood, and I'm not much of an animal lover. The place is in a wonderful setting and all of the animals have lots of space to do their thing. Compared to similar attractions, Wildwood comes out looking good with a huge variety of British mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds- and no insects/arachnids etc., which is... More

Visited here with my son 9 and daughter 15. It was really interesting. I was hard to see some of the animals as they were hiding and one of the animals was just running in a circle but his home was being made bigger so it might have been bored. Nice to see wolves and bison. The children's play area... More

Wildwood is set just off the main road between Canterbury & Herne Bay. There are lots of interesting animals including a Bear, Wolves, Deer, Bison, Elk... There is lots more, but no 'big game' or gorillas or monkeys. The setting is pleasant & based within a forest & despite the weather not being great there today it was still a... More

We went to the wildwood trust with our toddler and young baby for the morning and it was quite a pleasant experience overall. There are lots of interesting animals to see in semi-natural enclosures including a bear, wolves, elk and deer. Some of the enclosures looked a bit sad and we're smelly from stagnant water, but overall looked very well... More

We really enjoyed wildwood and had a great day out. It was good to see lots of animals that are native or were native to this country. Definitely worth taking the children out for a day. However, Don't be surprised if the odd moment of magic as your child sees their first wolf is ruined by the chavesque squawk of... More

Every Summer we arrange to take the students to Wildwood as part of our summer school programme. This year was the first year we engaged in their mystery hunt activity which was well designed and enjoyable for both the students and staff. Although it poured down with rain (make sure your bring your wellies, raincoat and umbrella) we made the... More

This is a wildlife park for birds and animals in Kent.. a chance to see them in their natural (or as natural as possible) habitat. We went with our 4 year old and it was a good place to spend half a day. I don't think our teenagers would have been that interested. There were wolves, squirrels, lynx, otters and... More
