  • We had a wonderful full day here. We arrived at opening and could have stayed beyond closing. It is well worth going along to the feedings and talks throughout the day. The wildlife park makes excellent use of the beautiful landscape it is located within. If you have a car, the drive through safari is magical on a nice day.
  • Brilliant place to explore, we easily spent most of the day here. Very impressed with the layout of the park, the variety of wildlife to see and the helpfulness of the park staff. Highly recommended to visit. Loved the tigers, the polar bears and the snow monkeys!! Hope to return again shortly.
  • Almost completely outdoors so requires decent weather. The polar bears are worth the visit. There's a half decent play park to entertain the kids for a short while. There is a café and a shop which was a little tight for space as we had a buggy. They also have a safari trail. I would go back if the weather was good.
  • Cold but awesome. Staff are helpful. The animals are beautiful and clearly well looked after and cared about, main reserve drive through enjoyable, even though the herbivores tend to hide (don't blame them, sometimes rather cold I imagine). Amazing views as well. Well worth the visit
  • Wonderful experience visiting the park. I was very happy to see the Scottish wildcats. Most folk left shortly after the ranger but I stayed after the rest left and had quite an opportunity to watch the wildcats. Absolutely beautiful.
