About Us




A walk on the wild side just a 10 minute drive from Keswick.

With the backdrop of the Skiddaw massif journey on foot around the 24 acres of parkland visiting over 100 species of wild and domestic animals cared for in this beautiful setting by their qualified and highly motivated keepers.

A range of engaging presentations take place daily bringing you closer to many of the park’s favourites.  Take a look at Tripadvisor for all the latest reviews.

With conservation at the heart of our ethos we actively support three charities and as BIAZA members we participate in six endangered species programmes.  Please see section on conservation.  We also jointly manage two SSSI sites on the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake.

Specialising in home cooked wholesome food the cafe is an outstanding asset to the park and probably serves the best range of meals, snacks and sweet treats of any wildlife park nationwide.  There are also ample picnic facilities outdoor and under cover should you prefer.

The gift shop provides a range of toys to suit all pockets and should be your first port of call for animal adoptions and keeper experience packages.  There is an outdoor play area and also an indoor play area with soft play and ball pool for when the Lake District weather becomes inclement!!
Have a great visit!

Come and meet us – it’s a fun day out for all ages.
