Bear at Wild Place Project


Wild Place Project have re-opened, subject to Government restrictions. Please check directly on their website and/or social media channels for the latest updates.

Discover a world of animal adventures – right on your doorstep! Wild Place Project is the perfect fresh-air destination, with over 50 acres of outdoor space to explore.

Spot animals from all over the globe, including many endangered species. Say ‘hello’ to giraffes, zebras, gelada ‘baboons’, cheetahs, meerkats and ring-tailed lemurs, among many others.

Thousands of years ago, bears lived in Britain. Now they’re back! Journey through British woodlands from 8000 BC to present day in the award-winning Bear Wood. Wander through 7.5 acres of beautiful habitat on raised walkways, watching bears, wolves, lynxes and wolverines roaming below. A UK first for zoos!

Kids can run wild in the play areas, including the Fun Fort, Congo Bongo and Barefoot Trail. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, there’s Leap of Faith – the thrilling outdoor climbing experience for adults and children.

Rumbling tum? Food options range from light bites to delicious pizzas. Base Camp Pizzeria is open during weekends and school holidays, with pizzas prepared by onsite chefs and freshly baked in stone-based ovens (vegan and gluten-free options available). The Pizzeria is located just behind the cheetah enclosure, so you can spot cheetahs while tucking in.

Wild Place Project was recently named South West Tourism Excellence Awards’ ‘Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2020/21’ and Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards’ ‘Visitor Attraction of the Year 2020/2021’.

Please check their website before visiting for the latest updates.
