Visited yesterday, loved it, wildcats were brilliant. Most of the animals had babies so it was perfect timing to go. Was lovely to see all the animals had massive enclosures with a natural surrounding in each one. Loved watching the antics of the polar bears in their pool.

During our walk of the park we got speaking to one of the members of staff as she was about to feed the wildcats. She was helpful, friendly and very knowledgable...... More

We had previously visited Edinburgh Zoo which had been dissappointing so decided to take a gamble and we are so pleased we did. The wildlife park was a great day out!

Its a nice visit and something nice to do when the sun is out but I found it expensive for what is there. I really liked sitting in the cafe and watching the monkeys! I've been a few times here but I've never managed to see the tigers.

Very good place to visit. Make sure you both walk and drive round it. If you are lucky enough to catch the polar bears frolicking in their pool, your day will be made.
