Kent’s unique wildlife park and conservation charity is home to over 200 native animals including deer, foxes, red squirrels, wolves, wild boar, lynx, badgers, beavers and the latest addition, a family of Kormisosh bears.

After exploring the grounds children can enjoy the Amazing Adventure Playground. Feel like a monkey swinging in the trees with swings and rockers. Climb up to new heights on the wild fort and treetop towers.  Slide on down Kent’s tallest drop slide if you’re feeling brave! The park is split into two, making play easy and safe for all ages. Snack on a tasty picnic on one of the nestled away picnic tables whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings or visit the onsite restaurant for something delicious.

Amazing day out fun for all the family!! 5 out of 5 stars

We visited Wildwood whilst on holiday in the Margate area. Our party consisted of 2 pensioner, one with mobility issues, my 3 children aged 2, 4 and 12 and myself. Every member of staff we had contact with was cheerful, polite and helpful, they spoke to the children and adults and really enhanced out visit. The bears were amazing and watching them in their enclosure and learning how they were rescued was totally awesome. The play area was well maintained, imaginative and suitable for all of my children. Talks on various animals were taking place through the day and although we missed most of these the staff still talked to us about the animals and answered our questions. Disabled access was very good (although obvious getting a wheelchair across the rope bridge over the bears was not an option, alternative route was available.). We were lucky enough to visit during the Saxon weekend and watched a enactment of a viking/Saxon battle. We also spoke to many people in the Saxon village who told the children about the Saxon way of life and allowed them to grind flour and try out the shields and weapons. The only disappointing thing about Wildwoods in that is not nearer to where we live. Highly recommend visiting!!!


Amazing day out 5 out of 5 stars

Wildwood was an absolutely brilliant day out and well worth the drive from SE London! There is so much to see and do (for all ages). I couldn't recommend this place enough and I am sure we will go back again.
