Good selection of attractions, and even on a cold winter day we saw lots of animals. Second day of school holidays so plenty of people. Very enthusiastic lemur staff made our visit interesting. However lots of mud underfoot, recommend wellies and old trousers

We decided to go here near xmas as they were doing a 50% discount. 2 adults and 2 children entrance for less than £15 - bargain ! Nice layout - the wolves were amazing.

This is a great day out especially on a nice day. The number of animals has increased in the last couple of years and there are lots of activities for children including a daredevil ride at extra cost. They also do birthday parties for children. We found wolf spotting and seeing the cheetahs very exciting and the African Village with... More

I've been a member of Wild Place's sister attraction, Bristol Zoo, for years and love visiting there. So I was looking forwards to seeing what Wild Place had to offer. It was a real disappointment though - if you want to go to zoo-type attraction in Bristol, the main zoo in Clifton is by far the better option. Firstly, it... More

Visited for the first time recently. The venue is spacious and requires some walking to get the best out of it. We enjoyed the woodland walks as well as the areas themed on different parts of the world. We enjoyed the Madagascar 'village'. The venue makes much of being able to walk through the animal enclosures. To avoid disapointment it... More

Fab place to let young ones run off steam while seeing wildlife in a much larger setting. Kids had fun, trails to keep the attention going. Great giant swing.

A fairly good wild life place , limited animals. It was cold so most some of the animals were indoors. Some good things to do for kids whilst walking around. We went to the leap of faith section. This where the park gets top marks, the lady taking payment is happy , cheerful and informative. The guys on the ropes... More

I agree with the previous reviewer , many of the staff clearly wished they were somewhere else. The café staff were beyond appalling, I personally witnessed customers demanding refunds as the café staff had no clue how to make tea , coffee or even hot chocolate. When asked for a refund a teenager was sent for who asked how long... More

Couple of points early on: Rude staff Expensive I think wild place could be a great attraction but it wasn't. A lot of the staff didn't want to be there and some (The Firepit) was rude to the customers. The animals seemed well cared for so no complaints there, it was actually quite a nice place if you consider these... More
