Excellent day out for the family. The park is clean and easily accessible, with fantastic views of the animals. Lots to see and do and plenty of room to have a picnic if you take one. My wife and i have annual passes for the park and regularly take our daughter for a day out here. The opening of the... More

Super place far a day out, suitable for all ages. Sturdy footwear recommended, not all paths are smooth tarmac. Animals appear to be well cared for and in adequate enclosures. Toilet facilities are superb, although we did visit in January when thewre were few visitors, this may change later in the year. The main restaurant is well worth a visit,... More

We visited with our grandson unaware that there was a special event for Halloween taking place. They had pulled out all the stops not only is it a fantastic place to visit anyway the Halloween themes and entertainment made it extra value for a great day out. Will be buying season passes as just a lovely place to walk around

Very lovely attraction which is great for all the family!! My favourite was the lion enclosure. I cannot praise the staff enough for everything they do! The site is a good walk but be prepared for rocky areas.

I visited this for the first time with my five year old niece, and honestly, it was boring. Everything was so far apart, what five year old wants to do that? It took a lot to keep her entertained and get round all the animals. There isn't much food or drink choice around the park either. I would not visit... More

Does what it says on the tin really, a great day out for couples, work or families. My only qualm with yorkshire wildlife is the polar bears enclosure. It does not seem fitting for polar bears to be in an enclosure covered with grass but that's my personal opinion. Otherwise great day out

This attraction has plenty to offer for all ages , great views of all animals bring a camera, sturdy footwear recommended. WC facilities excellent, plenty of places to eat and drink or take a picnic. Leave plenty of time to spend with the Polar Bears.

Excellent place to visit for all the family. Great coffee and doughnuts are a winner with the kids. Great to see magnificent animals in spacious environments. Great value for money in annual passes.

This is an excellent attraction to have in South Yorkshire, the ability to see such a range of animals that are not in cages. Good easy paths to walk round and also a range of places to eat and to shop!

Really great day out! The polar bears are a family favourite! Great to get so close to the giraffes! Kids love walking with the little monkeys! The new outdoor play area is amazing for all ages! A fantastic family day out and our annual passes are more than worth it! Halloween and Christmas weeks were fab!
