Bright but cold day .as soon as we entered we found signs saying "aminals asleep for winter" ...we found this repeated many times around the park. The play park is great , lots to do for all ages . The park is in the... More

This was a very interesting place which was not expensive.there were a variety of animals some of them endangered. For example there were buffalo, deer, otters and many others and the setting amongst the trees in a wood made it very appealing. The restaurant was inexpensive and the food good. It will appeal to families of all ages and to... More

This is a relatively small wild life park, but well worth a visit especially with young children. There is a play area and a cafe. The management are working hard for the environment and wild life. obviusly they can't control the weather and,like us, the animals prefer to be indoors when it is cold and wet.

This place has to be one of the best outdoor attractions for miles around. It just keeps getting better. The setting is in ancient woodland, and the park has been created as a rambling route through the trees, snaking on for what seems a very long way. Like a good garden, there is a surprise around every corner. The variety... More

Nice to see animals in a more natural setting. Went in winter while it was raining so many of them were either napping or hibernating. Favorite would be the wolves. Loved it there. So peaceful and serene.

We have visited Wildwood on a number of occasions as we tend to take visitors with children there. Our last visit was the first time they had the drop slide which certainly added to the attraction for children. It can be a bit hit and miss depending on the weather and the visitors. We have been disappointed in the past... More

Our son had visited several times with Hadlow College but we hadn't. We very much enjoyed our visit. The otters were enchanting, curled up in their Holt and I particularly liked the Harvest mice. The staff looked busy building the new bear enclosure and clearing the paths. I presume the paths were so stodgy because the staff were using equipment... More

Have been a member for 13 years and still the kids and us enjoy everyday there. Isn't really anything to dislike. Toilets are clean. Park is huge.

We started to visit Wildwood last summer with our grandchildren. The children love the animals, woodland paths and most of all the huge playground. We enjoyed it so much that purchased a yearly family ticket. We tend to take a picnic as the children enjoy this but there is a basic menu available in the cafe on site
