The mesmerising walk-through wildlife park experience takes visitors through over 100 acres of unrivalled reserves, home to more than 450 animals from 57 species.

Fun goings on this May Bank Holiday coincide with half-term and the annual British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (BIAZA)’s Love Your Zoo week - which calls for communities to visit and support their local zoos and wildlife parks and the role they play in conservation, welfare and the environment.

Visitors to the park will learn about the amazing rescue of the Brown Bears from Japan, see the Amur tigers – the largest of all the big cats in the world, and walk amongst the animals in the South America Viva reserve.

The polar bears, the only ones in England, can be seen exploring and swimming in their huge reserves at Project Polar.

A special new event takes place during May half term - a marvellous Comic Book Superheroes event from Friday May 31 until Sunday June 2.
