#1 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Kent
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.

  • An amazing park to go visit. There are a variety of animals to go and see ranging from gorilla's to raccoons! Also, they offer experience days to get very hands on with certain animals too! The staff across the park are very friendly and kind, with talks happening throughout the day giving you a great insight into the animals! There's a large play area for kids and restaurants and the prices are reasonable too. You can easily spend the whole day here with its relaxing environment, free parking and great staff!
  • Always enjoy a visit to this wildlife park. It has everything you need. Lots of gorgeous animals. To many too list, but my wife and I love the big cats. There are two permanent cafés which serve quickly but is cooked fresh and reasonable prices. Toilets are excellent and with nappy changing facilities. Two allocated smoking area's. The owner manager and wife and family have put a lot of hard work into this establishment, over the years. Well worth a visit.
  • The best zoo/farm to visit I have ever been to! It's just me and my partner with no kids we can spend all day here. So much to see great for kids any ages. Honestly the best place ever. We now have a car so we will be getting the season ticket 😀 and come more often.
  • A nice sized zoo (not too large) with a good play area for kids. Lots of different species to see with good viewing areas. The play park area was very popular but well laid out with lots of seating with food and drink for sale. The dinosaur display was great and very informative. Free parking and good facilities.
  • Had a wonderful day there is loads of variety of animals. There is a reptile area also. There is a indoor play area which is brilliant for the kids. There is a big outdoor play area too. 8/10 Nice place to visit.

Where to stay in Canterbury

To explore Canterbury at your own pace, book your rooms at a family-run hotel in the heart of this historical city.

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. For an equally comfortable and affordable stay, consider one of many centrally located guesthouses, which feature elegant rooms and covered courtyards.
