Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
First opened in 1986 as a bird park, Wingham Wildlife Park expanded into a wildlife park containing over 200 species, including a number of endangered species. Spanning an area of 10.5 hectares (26 acres), the zoo divides into several key areas. The tropical house features tropical plants, fish ponds, and free-roaming tropical birds. The reptile house contains 46 species of reptiles, including dwarf crocodiles and rhinoceros iguanas. The mandrill island houses a troop of colorful mandrills. Refer to the timetable to find talks and feeding exhibitions, and be sure to try to include the red panda talk and tiger feeding in your schedule. The soft indoor play area acts as a change of scenery for kids when they need a break from the animals.

  • We booked an experience, which included full entry to the park and in this package, we got close to the two species of otter they keep. The day was really fun and memorable, the hard working staff make sure that you have a great time and really understand the work that they do, while letting you enjoy the time you have with the animals. Everything here is about welfare, it's all clean and you can see the staff working throughout the park all day, keeping the enclosures up to their high standards and feeding or tending to the animals. There's a cool dinosaur area, with big moving models and information about prehistoric life, plenty of fun photo opportunities. The gift shop is nice, the cafe staff are very friendly but the food is pretty basic and not cheap for what you get but that can be forgiven, as you can bring a picnic if you plan ahead. There's loads for kids and it's just the right size so that you can do a few loops around and revisit areas, if a particular animal was taking a nap! Well worth visiting and supporting this lovely place.
  • Great day out for all the family. Drinks and ice creams are expensive, but there are plenty of places to eat if you take your own picnic. It isn't overly large but there is enough there that it can last a day. Especially if you stop at the children's play area. There is also a section of the zoo where you can touch and feed the goats (food is an extra charge (£1 when I visited)) which is brilliant fun for adults and kids alike.
  • One of the best little, family friendly wildlife parks in the area. There is also visible investment improving the parks facilities and those of the animal enclosures. A great day out, added to this there is ample outside and indoor (free) play-parks for the children.
  • Awesome place to take the little ones. Loads of animals to see, some you can feed, big outdoor play area, great indoor play area. Reasonably priced food and drink if you don't fancy taking a picnic.
  • Our 1st Visit to Wingham Wildlife Park as part of a birthday celebration. We were amazed at the variety of animals , it is certainly possible to spend the whole day there . Lots to do for the little ones , with soft-play proving to be very popular , the Dinosaur park as well. Good priced food . We booked an experience , the chosen Puma , was not really in the mood , we were given the option to "meet " a Tiger as an alternative , it made one of our parties day to get close to one of these amazing animals and give him a scratch. Great staff , a wonderful place for a day out.

Where to stay in Canterbury

Family-run hotels offer traditional values, warm hospitality, and fully-licensed bars and restaurants, all at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
