Attraction Information

Lake District Wildlife Park is the only wildlife park in North Cumbria. Visit amazing animals against a backdrop of stunning natural landscape!

This 24-acre parkland has over 100 species, including a magical birds of prey display that has been delighting visitors for over twenty years. With an emphasis on conservation and education keepers are keen to share their love and knowledge of their favourite animals such as Brian, the oldest Larr Gibbon in Europe, Beauty the Boa Constrictor, Bill the Bald Eagle and Harley the Mandrill and family.

The outdoor adventure play area is always a big hit with children, who can climb, crawl, slide and swing to their hearts content while you unpack the picnic in the undercover area, ensuring your sandwiches are sheltered from any impromptu rain showers! There’s also an indoor soft play and newly refurbished café serving home cooked food that’s locally sourced.

Experience the wild!
