We were two families of 4, each paying £37 for a family ticket, and expectations were high but wow, what a rip off it was. I think we saw as many animals as you can count on one hand. The enclosures are extremely overgrown, so any chance of spotting any animals is very limited. The whole place is very tired... More

First time here, was sadly disappointed as the reviews were quite good, and the staff were lovely however there was a lot of empty enclosures not quite the up close experience we was hoping for..we did see there bear from a distance and and two wolves again from a distance. The play area as alot of reviews say is very... More

My wife & I have made many visits to this wonderful place and know that we will share a new experience of the natural world every time. We took out membership over a year ago which gives us unlimited visits and supports the excellent work that is done by the trust. The variety of animals cared for ranges from the... More

As the title, its just OK, we were round the park in 35 minutes and that was actually spending a reasonable time looking at the animals, the rest of the entry fee was spent in the park. If your bored and need to waste some time its worth a look otherwise save your money

Nice day out for the family.you can look at all the animals stopping for a nice drink/snack. The play area is fantastic for children of all ages. You can also get a season ticket and go whenever you lIke.

A friend and I have today had a wonderful time at WildWood (even without kids). The staff were amazing in their politeness, knowledge and willingness to help. The trust has a fantastic variety of wildlife along with a schedule of talks and feedings and we found it beneficial to cross-cross the site, returning to some locations so that animals that...

It was a bit out of the way behind a small industrial area along a rough road but there was plenty of parking. We picked up a brochure from our hotel and so got a £2.50/ person discount and paid just under £9 each instead of £11.45 ( our party is 2 adults). The park is home to mostly British... More

Well it makes a change from visiting Zoo's. Wildwood has many different types of birds and other animals. But the best part had to be seeing the wolves and bears. The bears made it more special. They have a nice little playpark for the kids to let off steam but beware of the chickens they do what they please.

This is an attraction best enjoyed in the company of children as we have done on a number of occasions with our granddaughter.The Trust is growing in both size and ambition.They have recently rescued two bears from appalling conditions in Europe and are now racing to finish an enclosure in which to house these beautiful animals. The paddocks and enclosures... More
