A visit to Wildwood is a great day out for all the family where you can see over 200 British animals past and present.

Their latest addition is their family of Kormisosh bears!

Set in 40 acres of ancient woodland, Wildwood holds a stunning collection of over 200 British animals in semi-natural enclosures, laid out around a twisting woodland trail. See wolves, foxes, deer, badgers, owls, wild horses, lynx, beavers, wild cats, bison, squirrels, wild boar, otters and many more!

Wildwood is not just a wildlife park but is also a unique conservation project that aims to protect our native wildlife. Many of the animals at Wildwood are now extinct in the UK or are under threat, so when you visit you are playing your part in helping some of the UK's most endangered animals.

Join our experts at weekends and school holidays for free close-up animal talks and feeds when you can learn all about the animals, visit the Beaver Lodge Cafe or enjoy a picnic in our spacious picnic area.

Finish your day by letting your kids go wild in our large adventure play park featuring Kent's tallest vertical drop slide, zip wire, wild fort, twisting tube slide and tree-top towers, there is also a special area for under 5s too.

Remember: A visit to Wildwood is a visit to a woodland; if it has rained, we'll have puddles, so be prepared! Bring wellies and waterproofs, or sun hats if hot. Buggy and wheelchair friendly throughout, but the woodland paths can get soft and muddy in very wet weather.

It may be worth checking out Wildwood's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.


We do strongly suggest you contact Wildwood before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
