Really great day out, animals have a nice space in their enclosures and it's well spaced out to walk around. We went on a bank holiday and even though it was busy it didn't feel over crowded. Food was good and not badly price. We spent 4 1/2hrs there which was enough, but if you have younger children there's a... More

Not been for 18 months but wanted to treat nieces and nephews to a late Easter present......eggs would have been cheaper but that is not a criticism of the park by any means.....:) Fantastic day and a feel good day seeing animals so well cared for. Highlight by far for me was seeing 2 polar bears dive into the deep... More

Lovely day out, shame about the weather, the animal enclosures looked well kept. Only downside take your own lunch and drinks! As usual these type of places love squeezing money from you, not much choice for eating. We paid ten pound for two smallish cups of hot chocolate and a small bottle of water. Don't get caught out take your... More

Good day out at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Arrived just as it opened so no queuing time - good prices too with a voucher. Park very clean and all the animals out for feeding so plenty to see. The polar bears were amazing - basking in the little sunshine we have. And the lions were all out for us to... More

The wife and little one are season ticket holders and visit regular I visited for the first time in years last Monday and was impressed with the additions. Only downsides were the removal of the petting areas (all be it 1 sheep and a pony), also the bug show shows effort to do something different but is a bit boring... More

We recently visited as part of a family 4 adults and 3 young children. I have to say I was unexpectedly surprised at the organisation. The car park was well managed with minimal queuing considering it was Easter holidays. Even entrance into the park was a similar experience with a number of extra tills being opened at the time making... More

Beautiful surroundings, well-kept enclosures and lots to see and do. It all looks and feels brand new. We loved the polar bears! Would highly recommend.
