After the understated arrival through the sales units, Wildwood gives a surprising amount of adventure and wildlife. Adders, wolves, lynx, otters, red squirrels, bison, pine martins, polecats, deer, lizards, tortoises, badgers, beavers and many more... in other words all the fauna that has lived in Western Europe until us humans came along and took over. Sometimes you get unlucky and... More

My family and I are regular visitors here; having their pay monthly card which is a true bargain. Apart from the fantastic children's play area which is well worth the visit alone, there is a great range of animals here, from wolves and otters to water voles and pine martins. The work that Wildwood does to help restore habitats and... More

I was expecting something a lot different to what I found! It was a boiling hot day the day we went and it was very cold in the wood, not that I minded but felt very sorry for the animals that never seem to see any sun but live in a world that doesn't resemble how they would normally live!... More

We had a great day at wildwood on the family go tribal challenge day. We arrived and picked up by Steve, our tutor for the day. He gave us loads of incites on how our ancestors lived in England. Explained how we built fires. Then we were off collecting fuel/material from the woods to make our own fire. Supervised from... More

Don't be put off by the entrance from the main road through a rundown area - this place is a delight. We visited on a wettish Saturday morning and were the first visitors of the day - in fact having it to ourselves for sometime. There is a surprisingly wide selection of wildlife is what is quite a restricted area.... More

After reading previous reviews, we decided to try Wildwood for ourselves. I was extremely impressed. When we arrived, we were greeted by a friendly member of staff who informed us about membership, told us about the benefits including unlimited visits to the park and at only £5 a month for both my husband and I to take our young daughter...

Having spent some time researching 'things to do in Kent with children' I stumbled across Wildwood. I was drawn to the opportunity to see native UK species - some of which sadly don't inhabit our shores any more. When we arrived I feared we'd wasted a journey as it's certainly not the most auspicious of entrances! But when we got... More

We were on a caravan holiday couple of months ago and had planned all the places we wanted to visit Wildwood Trust was one of them. We were amazed immediately we got out of the car, as coming towards us were chickens plus little chicks, ducks all roaming freely - this place was amazing, it's somewhat difficult to describe as...

I suppose being honest this is a place to visit when its warm/dry to get the best experience, as that is when the animals are active, but be prepared to find alot of animals asleep or hidden. The animals roam in woodland settings which was lovely with leaves out and birds singing in the trees. On the day we visited,... More

We visited for the first time and weren't disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were met with friendly helpful staff who loved their animals. There were several talks throughout the day at various animal enclosures which were engaging and personal, Martin was enthusiastic and knowledgable. The range of animals are wide from toads and bees to Lynx, elks and... More
