Well looked after animals. Polar bears, lions and tigers my particular highlight. Enclosures were well maintained and spacious. The only niggle was that the toilets were disgusting and the queues for food and drink were ridiculous - especially in the freezing cold! However was fun...More
Me and my partner went to the wildlife park after hearing about it from friends that had been previously. The staff in the park are the most enthusiastic and informative staff members I've ever come across, being able to tell us details about each individual...More
This was our first visit but certainly won’t be our last. Friendly staff, fantastic layout and ideal for everyone due to the paths making wheelchairs/ buggy’s a lot easier. Happily spent 6 hours viewing the animals and listening to the knowledgeable keepers. Loved seeing the...More
Great place for a full day. Close encounters of the wild kind that make the visit more educational.
Good variety of animals.

Lots of facilities, coffee stops and toilets.

I'm always wary of zoo like attractions, especially when they have large animals such as Polar Bears but was recommended YWP by a Vet.
Fantastic day. Enclosures large and well maintained. Animals seemed content, in good physical condition and active, not bored and fat. Many...More
