We visited the Peak Wildlife Park to celebrate a family 88th birthday and had a wonderful visit. It is suitable for visitors of all ages. The park is a great environment and habitat for the animals wh... read more »
Visited today for the first time. Only an hour from Manchester. Got here for opening, the first people actually. Only £20 for a family of 4. As we got there early a lot of the animals weren't active s... read more »
This isn't as large as some wildlife parks but it's an absolute treasure. You can walk through many of the animal enclosures, which is great for kids with cameras. All critters look well cared and hav... read more »
Visited the park today and it has been a brilliant day out, the park is very well kept and all the staff are happy and friendly, they all look like they love their jobs. Being able to go into the enclosures with the animals is a great experience and my daughter loved stroking the goats and she also stroked and hand fed a wallabie while it had a baby joe in its pouch. There is a bouncy castle in the playground and you will find around the park those little plastic play cars for kids to get in and wheel themselves along which I thought was a great touch, it has a cafe with lots of seating inside and out, there are benches and picnic benches all over the park, good wheelchair and pushchair access and a great gift shop. The only criticism I have is the carpark, your driving on chunks of stones but from the looks of it they are in the process of improving the carpark and expanding it anyway so I'll let them off. As you walk around you will see around the edges of the park a few diggers/signs etc so it looks like they are expanding the park so I'm looking forward to seeing what's new next time we visit. Fantastic place for a nice family day out, definately recommend and will be going back soon and getting a season pass
Visited with our two little children and enjoyed a good morning out, being able to walk round the animal enclosures makes a big difference. Our little boy (nearly 3 years old) was able to get close enough to stroke the lemurs and goats who seemed quite appreciative. Facilities were of a high standard and very clean as well.
Good size but because its only just opened there isnt much to see. Most signs say "under construction, which is fine but when you are paying full price.... !? The gift shop and cafe are good. No option food to feed the birds or chickens. Definitely needs a few farm animals like donkeys. Also a petting area with rabbits and guinea pigs would be good. Maybe donkey rides at the front on the big field at the entrance gates. The bird cages are empty as it says that its cruel to keep them in there.... well perhaps take them down rather than leave them empty ?? Penguin feeding at 1.30pm was good for the kids to watch. Staff are really friendly and answer your questions. Very cold up there so definitely need hat scarf and gloves if its below 10degrees.
My young daughter and i have had a really lovely day at the wildlife park. Friendly staff, great animals and environment. Would highly recommend.
Have not been since it changed from "Blackbrook zoo" ,which was visited on a number of occasions, & what a disapointment. Walked around it (not quickly) in about 45 mins. All the bird pens gone, not many animals, and various pools that contained various wild birds etc. all over grown. I know it is a work in progress but the progress is looking very slow. Entry fee was some what more than we ever paid when it was "Blackbrook" and the gifts in the entrance room were very overpriced. Feb. 2016
