A great day for anyone who loves to see the animals on more natural surroundings. Not somewhere to rush around. Standing and watching brings rewards. The red squirrels are incredible. The only disappointing area is the fox pen. The foxes are kept in what appears to be an abandoned kiddies play area. Clearly designed with the visitors in mind not... More

I visited wildwoods this week with my daughter and my grandson. Just at the entrance there was a pallet and some boxes, I was shocked at the poor upkeep of the place, it was dirty, bird cages in poor condition. just next to the goats there was an old broken piece of fence. The 2 cats were pacing in their... More

I live just down the road from Wildwood but didn't go for years. When I finally went I was pleasantly surprised. I assumed it would be a third rate Howletts but it was very good and I have been going back regularly. Depending on who you are going with you can make the trip last the whole day by taking... More

We are members of Wildwood, so visit several times a year, and I can honestly say that this is the best way to do things. Of the animals represented there, you are guaranteed to see slightly fewer than half on every visit. The remaining residents are more elusive, and some, like the mink and water voles I have *never* seen.... More

Been to Wildwood for the first time, to be honest I wasn't really impressed, saw a few animals not many, it was a lovely walk through the woods. IT didn't hold my daughters attention, I am sorry to say I will not be returning . To be honest I think next time I will go to Wingham wildlife park.

Dear Ellefrances, Thank you for posting a review of your recent visit to Wildwood, we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your visit. At Wildwood we insist on giving our animals as natural a life as possible, this means that a small number of our animals may not be easy to see at first glance. Where possible... More

A great family day out. Even the hubby, who is less into animal attractions, really enjoyed it. Nice to see british wildlife for a change, in natural looking enclosures. We're all used to seeing big animals in zoos so it was refreshing to show the kids animals like stoats, ravens, elk, deer and squirrels as welll as things like lynx,... More

I went with my grown up daughter for lunch & afternoon visit. Cafe food basic but clean, would be expensive for a family. We followed our tour map ticking each animal/bird as we viewed it - 2pm watched Birds of Prey training. We toured each animal enclosure & watched the frolics from the many viewing areas - many had a... More

Went to Wildwood yesterday for the first time in 4 years and joined the trust only £7 per month for a family and gives you unlimited visits to the park total bargain. It was nice to see they have spent a lot of money upgrading the parks look and feel and are currently running an appeal to save some bears... More

Wildwood is certainly packed with things to both do and see for kids of all ages. We visited as a family group aged from from 2 to 66 and enjoyed the experience and saw at close quarters many of the UK's indigenous species and some not so native - the bison and elk/moose!!. The dormice were a joy to see... More
