Yorkshire Wildlife Park is home to... polar bears! Four in fact, as well as over 60 different species with daily talks, live shows and animal education.
Now back to those bears! Victor, Pixel, Nissan and Nobby live in an innovative, research focused habitat where their welfare is the number one priority. By visiting these iconic creatures you’ll no doubt feel inspired to learn more about conservation, as well as simply enjoying seeing them playing, swimming and snoozing.
New in 2018: the Big Bugs Play Area with a giant pyramid tent for picnics and fun whatever the weather. The Safari Village is where you’ll find lots of things to eat, drink and buy, while the Monkey Playhouse and Zoom Super Slide Barn are great for kids with bags of excess energy.

5* plenty of animals, work on-going for a "Walkthrough" with rhinos and zebras in progress just to name a few animals. Yearly adult ticket £55 for adults. Regular feeding and educational talks daily. Staff very passionate and knowledgeable about the animals and conservation the park is involved with. Plenty of seating areas for picnics, classrooms too for groups and classes visiting. Thoroughly relaxing, informative and enjoyable day spent there. Bought a yearly ticket and already been again.

Overall we had a great day at Yorkshire wildlife park I sure that this is a place which I will end up visiting again in the future because of the fact that it is not that far for us to travel. It is actually our local wildlife park I think and I want to see the polar bears again because they were super cute I really hope maybe in the future they can get more and maybe breed some because they would be super cute. I would recommend visiting if you are not looking for somewhere huge like a zoo but somewhere which still has rare animals. We had a lot of fun watching the polar bears it is so rare to be able to see them.

Enjoyed the park only down fall was it was cold today and a little rain so very few animals were out and about so spent a lot of the time just walking around didn’t feel like it was worth the 17 pound paid. Positive side it will probably be better in warmer weather.
