Yorkshire Wildlife Park is home to the UK’s only 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 2017: 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.
