How this park has been allowed to stay open is beyond me!!!! And how they have managed to "rescue" and been allowed to keep two brown bears baffles me!!!! The enclosures are muddy and the animals look distressed!!! The Bison were up to their ankles in mud.. The staff were rude and unable to answer any questions regarding the animals!!!!... More

Not having visited for some years, when very disappointed. I took family to this park to be very supprised at the transformation, the trails around the site were passable and long, so be prepared for tired children, if the walk does not kill them then the playground will. Even in the winter there is plenty to see, in a very... More

A great time was had by us. Seeing animals in an environment simular to the wild. The enclosures are rustic and blend in to the surroundings, instead of standing out like a sore thumb. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable.

Been here on many occasions all throughout the year. Of course winter is the less interesting as animals hibernating yet we still enjoyed walking round the park, kiddies splashing in puddles nice warm coffee while kiddies played in the play area. In rest of the year you get to see so many different wildlife and in a nice natural way,... More

Went to Wildwood with my husband and 2 young children to see Santa, which was very good. My husband and I were very impressed with Santa's Grotto and the man himself was very impressive and the elves were very friendly. Got to see the Otters being fed as well which was great! We will definitely be returning to Santa's Grotto... More

We enjoyed our Christmas Eve visit to the Wildwood Trust. Santa's Grotto was great - extra on top of the entrance fee to the park of course - and that's where the problem lies. Many of the animals were hibernating, which makes the entrance fee quite poor value for money. It was lovely to see reindeer, an elk, a wolf,... More

Really good to see animals in natural surroundings! Peaceful and with plenty to keep children interested, even before you get to the play area! Free entry, I believe, if you arrive by public transport and the bus stops right outside!
