  • Just returned from our first visit to wildwood. The atmosphere is very relaxed and so enjoyable. The staff are all very friendly especially Michael who loved chatting to us and really enjoyed telling us about the animals,especially the crows. Well worth a visit and reasonably priced too. Would definitely recommend and would go back again .

  • We loved this place, such a nice atmosphere. The animals are in decent sized enclosures and looked well. Michael (I think was his name) was really good, chatting to all the public explaining the animals and answering questions he has a real good knowledge about the animals. The food was good and reasonable priced will definitely be returning and telling everyone about this quiet little gem of a place.

  • Great value for money, we had a brilliant time at Wildwood and would highly recommend. We spent 3 1/2 hours taking our time to appreciate all the animals and we learnt so much. The staff were friendly and helpful. For those who can appreciate Native species, wildlife and conservation, it is a great place to go.

  • This is a wonderful place for the family. The keepers are all very knowledgeable and happy to answer even the strangest questions. They do invaluable work for british wildlife, have a fantastic collection of obviously well looked after animals in well thought out enclosures FOR THE ANIMALS. None of the animals are exploited, just lovely. We've been going for a few years now and have no plans to stop any time soon. A HUGE family favourite!

  • On arrival at the park, it didn't look like it was up to much but we attended a couple of the talks which were really informative and as we wandered round we were more impressed. There are lots of animals there despite the park not seeming that big. The keeper who did the talks was great, we didn't catch his name. The food in the cafe was surprisingly good and reasonably priced. The kids play area had lots to offer. We had a Groupon deal so it was great value but had we signed up for annual membership we'd have got 15 months but only paid for 12. Joint membership for only £5 a month, bargain! A great value day out. I would highly recommend a visit.
