Wildwood Discovery Park, Canterbury Reviews - Write a Review
Had a couple of nights near Canterbury over half term and picked up some leaflets from the tourist info of which this place was one. Decided our 6 year old would probably like it so had a day there. Initially I missed the entrance as it's behind some industrial units which all had signs so it was sign overload and we missed it but 1 U turn later we were in! First impressions were I admit not so good as the first animals were hedge hog, adder, etc of which no sign (this was October). Mmm I thought lots of British wildlife either nocturnal or hibernating so unseen. However getting further into the park and there were lots of animals to see and all seemed to have nice surroundings to be in. Of special note were the brown bears. They were fantastic to see and were rescued from Bulgaria where they were bred for hunting. They had a huge enclosure and the walkway above them was really well done. Worth a visit just for this ( though they will hibernate). After the animals it was on to the play park. The drop slide was something else, I even had a couple of goes! Rest of play park was good as well and daughter enjoyed that. We were there a good 4 to 5 hours so for the entry fee it was very good value. Recommended.
Massive array of British animals . Very informative staff if you had any questions about the animals. Most of the animals had obvious enrichment items in their enclosures which is fantastic zoo management. They all genuinely care about their animals and their conservation. They also offer night tours and photography classes to those interested. Entry was cheap and we will visit here again. Great for those wanting to learn all about Britains native animals.
Lovely family animal park. Also feels comfortable to walk around on your own. Animals all British or European . All animals very well looked after. Excellent conservation programmes. Lovely helpful staff. Brilliant adventure playground for all ages & sizes !
Absolutely fantastic, great for the family for a good day out. All the staff are kind, friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable. We have been here several times and will continue to do so. Highly recommend making a visit here!
This place is great for children who adore wildlife. There is so much to do here for the adventurous child. A great Park for the older children to play in, and a smaller Park for young ones. There is a large selection of animals to take in and enjoy. They do a season pass at a very reasonable price, this is somewhere to visit more than once.
