From Owls to Otters, Bison to Beavers, Wild Boar to Wolves, there's lots to see at Wildwood Woodland and Wild Animal Park. Experience close encounters with over 50 species of British Wildlife set in 40 acres of beautiful ancient woodland.

Let your children thrill with close up educational talks and feeds or go wild in the adventure playzone with giant play fort and zip slide or enjoy a walk through the woods and a visit to the Beaver Lodge Restaurant.

Wildwood is a registered conservation charity and take part in conservation programmes of many native species, such as the Water Vole, Hazel Dormouse and European Beaver. So when you visit Wildwood you are helping to save some of the most threatened animals in the UK.

We offer regular special events, talks and feeds around the park, interactive sessions for groups and extensive educational programmes for schools.

Open every day, 362 days a year, Wildwood is a year round ever changing experience for the whole family with every facility you would expect from a premier visitor attraction.
