  • This was our 2nd time visiting the park and we loved it as much as we did the first time. We had with us our 16 month old son who had never been before. The park was so clean and tidy and there was so...  more »

  • Fantastic day at YWP. Boiling hot day so great to see the Polar Bears cooling down in the water having fun. Giraffes are always amazing to watch too. Loads of other great animals to see. Facilities have improved since our last visit particularly the toilets. Usual issues with prices of food and drink but on a par with every other attraction you can go to, alternatively do what we did and take your own. Well worth a visit.
  • Great selection of animals and they all have lots of room. Very kid friendly and there is even a soft play area for free. Most animals are rescued and they have plans to help avoid extinction so they care about animal welfare. It's not an expensive day out either.
  • Had an amazing day out with my 8yr old daughter, got to see a great array of fascinating animals. Spotlessly clean and well-kept in all areas. Very friendly, knowledgeable and informative staff. Additional talks and displays well worth the time. Overall, great value for the entrance fee. Will definitely be visiting again.
  • Wonderful day out. We brought my step dad as a father's day treat. He hadn't been before. I am gluten free I was able to have a lovely gluten free wrap, although I didn't have a pudding there were beautiful gluten free cakes available. There are plenty if eateries, places for drinks and toilets dotted about the park and also many pkay areas for children. We had a great day. Plenty of picnic benches if you chose to take your own food.
  • Small and can see all animals in a short amount of time time. But perfect for younger kids as you do less walking and it was relax. The bug shows were brilliant. Also the indoor play area and slide were good to keep the kids entertained during the day. Plenty of picnic bench and some undercover. Great day out. Recommend getting guide which has a alphabet quiz which you find the questions around the place(we only couldn't find two but the answers are at the exit)
