Had a great 3 hour visit today. The site isn't huge and at first I was a bit concerned that we would be finished in 20 minutes - how wrong I was! The staff and volunteers were all genuinely enthusiastic and informative. Everyone at the enclosures was happy to talk at length to the visitors and even took some photos... More

The UK Wolf Conservation Trust is just wonderful. The handlers are all so lovely and supplied us with ample tea/coffee and biscuits on our Howl Night (very welcome as it was freezing!) The talk about wolf communication was really interesting, and the staff know their stuff. The actual howling experience was magical, especially with it being on a full moon!... More

If you've not been, then go. If you haven't been in a while, then go. If you've been recently, then go! This place is fantastic, they're doing great work with the conservation of wolves and they offer fantastic interactive events. Everything from the simple "howl night" up to the "Photographic Day" event. We went for the February howl night. The... More

Worth a visit if you'd like to see wolves close up! You can't touch them of course but you do get close and the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly . You get a couple of cups of coffee or tea and biscuits during the visit no charge ( donations only) The Wolf howl evening we did, was very atmopheric... More

An educational visit in which staff and volunteers are very helpful and great informers! They've got 10 wolfs covering four enclosures and require heavily on donations - which was made very clear! A great place to acquire knowledge however is not a place to spend an entire day so if going - have another destination the same day to go... More

Would like to thank the staff for a great day with the wolves at the Wolf Conservation Trust. Getting up close and personal with the wolves on the wolf walk was a great experience for me and lynne, which I'm sure we'll repeat. Really enjoyed the walking with wolves photography day, thank you.

I visited the Wolf Conservation Trust with my youngest daughter during a weeks holiday in Oxfordshire. It took about an hour to travel there and the journey was pretty straight forward, the Trust is very well sign posted once you get nearer to Reading. We spent a great day at the trust and it was a priviledge to be around... More

We visited on an open day having been here a few years before but physically it hasn't really changed, at least in no good way. The so-called charity is run by a woman who had wolves as pets but decries anyone else doing this yet won't say they are dangerous! #confused. She also lives on site in a very exclusive... More

Tsa P, Owner at UK Wolf Conservation Trust, responded to this review

I am sorry you were disappointed by your recent visit to the Trust. The UKWCT was founded in 1995 by the late Roger Palmer and his now Widow, Tsa as a not for profit organisation. All the proceeds go, in the first instance, towards the upkeep and welfare of our 10 wolves. The Trust also supports 15 worldwide projects and... More

This wolf conservation is very much in the stick so it was quite hard to find! But in the charming little village of Beenham it was a lovely journey! Got there, welcomed at door and paid the £8 admission, and we were offered tea, coffee and biscuits for free which was nice. We were given the tour of all the... More
