Welcome to Wildwood, where you can come nose-to-nose with British Wildlife past and present.
Wildwood near Canterbury is a great day out for all ages where you can see amazing British wildlife from past and present. Set in 40 acres of ancient woodland, Wildwood holds a stunning collection of over 200 British animals in natural enclosures.
See bears, wolves, otters, foxes, deer, badgers, owls, wild horses, lynx, beavers, wild cats, bison, squirrels, wild boar, reindeer and many more as you walk around the twisting trails through an ancient British woodland. Finish your day by letting your kids go wild in the amazing adventure play park featuring Kent’s tallest vertical drop slide, zip wire, wild fort, twisting tube slide, pine marten towers and a special area for under-5’s.
Join animal experts at weekends and school holidays for free close-up animal talks and feeds, visit the Beaver Lodge Cafe or enjoy your own food in the spacious picnic area.
Wildwood is not just a wildlife park but also a unique conservation project, which aims to protect native British wildlife and bring back the original wild wood.
Please note: Our bears are currently in torpor for the winter, but can be viewed in their den on our Bear Cam screen at the enclosure. The bear viewing platform and bridge is closed while the bears are in torpor.
