Acres and acres of family fun
Take a breath of fresh air, stretch your legs and immerse yourself in nature. There are 50 beautiful acres to explore including woodlands, wildﬂowers, gardens and Tower Meadow – ideal for summer picnics.
Award-winning Bear Wood
Bears and wolves are sharing the same stretch of woodland at Wild Place Project! It’s a UK first for zoos and it’s the first time bears and wolves have lived together in British woodland for thousands of years.
Make sure you discover Bear Wood on your visit, and embark on a journey into a lost world.
Wind through 7.5 acres of beautiful habitat on raised walkways, watching bears, wolves, lynxes and wolverines roaming below. With panoramic viewpoints, this is an immersive and award-winning experience unlike any other!
Bénoué National Park at Wild Place Project
Journey to the wilds of Cameroon, Africa, in our stunning Bénoué National Park exhibit. While our enormous giraffe house is currently closed as part of our safety precautions for visitors, you can still take in the sweeping view of giraffes, zebras, red river hogs and elands roaming across the open grasslands.
Soak up the sights and sounds of the Madagascan village, a conservation exhibit home to lemurs and pygmy goats! Marvel at five different types of mischievous lemur scamper around. Spot one of our latest zoo babies... a gentle lemur pup.
The lemur walkthrough is currently closed to aid social distancing, but check the website for updates.
Cheetahs and Geladas
Catch a glimpse of our cheetahs, the world’s fastest land mammal that can achieve speeds of 0-60mph in just three seconds. Our males rule over their spacious land! Near these sleek, elegant big cats, there’s Gelada Rocks, home to our troop of colourful gelada ‘baboons’.
