A weekday in December was a great time to visit! So, so quiet but all the animals were really active. No queues, but most of the activities still running and the cafes open. Cannot fault. Absolutely love it here!

Highly recommended...obvious that the staff all love what they do and have a passion for the wildlife. Interesting and varied experience with plenty to see and do for both kids and adults. Can be really busy but that just goes to show how popular the place is and is a credit to the park!!!!

We had a voucher to go but left it a bit late as the weather was not good. It was foggy. However it didn't spoil our day. There was still plenty to see and I managed to get some good photos. The hole experience was good. We will go back again in the summer months. The Park is very well... More

Money well spent, the children loved it and it took us all day to get round which I appreciate after paying a little more than I would've liked! The slides at the end are amazing!

We visited Yorkshire Wildlife Park for a bit of a change from our usual trip to Chester Zoo. I was a little apprehensive, given how incredible Chester Zoo is, but I was pleasantly surprised by Yorkshire Wildlife Park. The park is easy to navigate and walk around, with fantastic enclosures which really allow you to get close to the animals.... More

Well this place is great! Lovely layout, easy to walk around, brilliant enclosures for the animals. All staff helpful and friendly. Talks throughout the day. Lots of food options. Reasonable priced. I will be returning. Loved seeing the polar bears and how they are making them 10 acres of space to roam. Just a little note make sure you read... More

Have been to two today. And despite the weather because of the layout of the park, it is still possible to see the animals in wonderful natural built habitats. Wonderful day out.

What a great place - vast space with well kept animals, plenty to explore and countless photo opportunities. Remember you'll need extra cash for the gift shop at the end!

When I found out I was going to the Yorkshire Wildlife park I was so excited as I love animals, and seeing them in their 'natural'ish habitat would be such a good day. It's a lovely place to go and the park is very clean with directions to all the exhibits (which is good for me, as I get lost... More
