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

lots of animals not there (out on loan, etc) enclosures too small - not enough room for some of the birds to fly. Outdated sub standard enclosures. Everywhere they had save the bears signs, and collection points. Whilst I totally agree with saving bears, they should look closer to home first. it seems they are more concerned with bear saving...

An excellent whole family day out. A good variety of different animals to see, a well sign posted trail and all the animals are labelled and described very well. The drop-slide is a fabulous added bonus for the children and the castle fort and park are inviting and fun. I would highly recommend a visit, there is a bit of... More

We obviously visited on a day most animals were having a lay in. Not much to see and we did try. Nice walk though and our youngest enjoyed the teddy bear trail and her meerkat poster at the end. I did feel disheartened by the animals. I too saw the squirrels pacing like maniacs. If it weren't for the trail... More

Well I was looking forward to going to this animal centre showing British animals and a few others. The first thing I came across was the completely disorganized car park, the cars were just bunged in any ware . I am driving a disabled car , and the disabled parking was a disgrace!! I could hardly manage to get out... More

My children (3 and 5) enjoyed walking round and looking at all the animals, having a picnic and there playing in the amazing play area. I have signed up for member shop and think this is really good value for money as the kids are already asking to go back. The birds of prey display was nice and we enjoyed... More

From the humble beginnings as 'Brambles' which my children spent alot of time exploring in the undergrowth. They have grown up and fled the nest! I still visit 'Brambles' now known for sometime as 'Wildwood, on a regular basis, as a mum, a friend, a teacher. Recently simply to have a wonder, a peppermint tea and catch up with my... More

Had a great day out here, lots of shade on a hot day very welcome! The play area was brilliant and the paths leading round the animal enclosures were nicely laid out and well signed. Food and drinks a plenty, reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

I have read through a couple of the recent negative reviews and I have to admit that they raise some very valid points, I can completely understand their perspectives as a one off visitor. However the real entertainment and behind the scenes work comes out when you become a frequent visitor, and for that they have a great value membership.... More
