Wingham Wildlife Park is set within 26 acres in which we display over 200 different species... That is more than any other zoo in Kent! Including some species not seen anywhere else in zoos in the UK, Europe and even the world!

As well as the all important animal collection we have 2 large play areas (both indoors and outdoors, making them fun all year), 2 restaurants (although one may be shut in the winter season) and a wide variety of animal talks, encounters and experiences!

Little legs get tired and our children saw so many animals. The dinosaur that move and " roar" were a highlight as were the penguin and tiger feeding. The tiger... More

Small park but interesting as there's questions and answer boards near enclosures so fun for the kids and adults! The rope bridge is excellent and felt safe tho lockers for handbags would be handy. Overall a good sunny day place with a relaxed atmosphere and nice cafe
