YWP were very accommodating. Our coaches initially did not turn up and YWP rearranged our workshops to ensure we did not miss out. The staff were extremely helpful and the park is aimed just right for children and has an amazing array of animals that the children would not normally get to see.

A fabulous experience for all of the children. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12468 )




Yorkshire Wildlife Park is a great place to visit to see lots of different wild animals and their habitats. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12381 )

We love visiting Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Such a great day out for our pupils. So many different animals to see and the education sessions are always led by enthusiastic staff. Entrance to park is organised and hassle free. Only difficulty is with the number of toilets when there are other schools visiting the park. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 12220 )

Excellent setting for school visits. Could just be improved with an accessible undercover area in case of bad weather or for schools to access at set times for lunch on busy days. (May 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11676 )




It was easy to communicate with the park and they allowed us to visit the park free of charge for the risk assessment. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and they kindly answered the (many) questions from the kids. We had an education session about polar bears which was a brilliant hands-on experience for the kids (obviously not with real, live polar bears). The children were able to see lots of different animals even in the cold weather. There was no where to store our lunches but this was communicated to us prior to the trip so we were prepared, the rest of the facilities were very good. (April 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11386 )

Excellent trip, enjoyed by all children and staff. We were able to see a range of animals in their natural habitats and the park keepers were helpful and answered the children's questions. The classroom workshop 'Aren't animals amazing!' was amazing!! The leader was helpful and understanding towards our children with additional needs. The children were very excited to handle real life animals. (April 2019 - Primary - Post No: 11126 )

We really enjoyed seeing all the different animals around the park. All the different areas and enclosures meant we could concentrate on particular animals without distraction of other nearby animals and remain focused. There is a wide variety of animals from large bears, big cats, giraffes and rhinoceros to smaller wallabies, lemurs and baboons. The needs of the animals was obvious to the children by what had been provided in the enclosures. Leaflets with feeding times were provided which meant we could see what foods the animals ate too. (November 2018 - Primary - Post No: 7717 )




Lots to see and do. Great venue. (November 2018 - Primary - Post No: 7462 )




An excellent venue with plenty attractions to entertain students and some well run workshops (October 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 7177 )

The wildlife park itself was lovely and the children really enjoyed the experience. They loved being able to walk through the animals' environments and seeing them in their natural habitats. The only issue that we had was that the children had only one water bottle with them and there were no facilities to fill them up as we were told by a staff member that she couldn't fill them up because they were short staffed on this particular day.

specific check in for schools. directions from staff and clear signs. in very hot weather- could do with more shade- especially where picnic tables are. (September 2018 - Primary - Post No: 6172 )

Great place, lovely facilities, we always have an enjoyable trip here (August 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5930 )




The park is a great experience for children with a variety of animals. The workshops are really good and you get to the hold the animals. It was 29 degrees when we went and, as the animals were quite spread out, there was a lot of walking for young children in such heat with not much shaded areas.

The visit is perfect for Key Stage 2! I highly recommend the Animal Adaptations Workshop. Our leader was extremely knowledgeable and all pupils were highly engaged. Children had an opportunity to handle artefacts and live animals too. (July 2018 - Primary - Post No: 5387 )

Day was well organised and the educational sessions were great and the children really enjoyed them. Only problem was when talking to a member of staff regarding a refund, however once we returned to school we phoned the education department team who sorted out the refund straight away.

Great place to visit. Ideally set up for infants - lots to see but very calm. Based around continents, so ideally supports geography objectives for ks1. Facilities good. Could do with somewhere indoors or more sheltered to eat picnics - always very windy. (May 2018 - Primary - Post No: 3542 )




A fantastic day with all the children thoroughly enjoying seeing all the animals. (May 2018 - Primary - Post No: 3428 )
