Yorkshire Wildlife Park

On my birthday a couple of weeks ago, I went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster. I’ve never been before, but do love days out like this and wanted to do something a little bit wholesome after eating out and drinking for the past week!

I’m always a little torn on zoos and wildlife parks, but the animals had so much space and were protected, so it was lovely to see them in such a great environment.

We were able to walk amongst the wallabies and being so close to them was amazing. There were also polar bears! Actual polar bears! I’ve never seen a bear before and was so child-like excited by them. They were fascinating and chilled out just like cartoon bears on TV.
There were also loads of lions with a striking, proud male. Truly amazing to see.

It’s definitely worth a visit, although it didn’t take us too long to get around. I think if you were having lunch there too or have children then it would be a whole day out, but for us it was a lovely Winter walk for a couple of hours.

Do you enjoy going to the zoo or wildlife parks? Have you been to Yorkshire Wildlife Park?

  • The polar bears sound amazing! It’s nice to see the animals have lots of space to roam. We are visiting for the first time tomorrow for my little girls birthday and i think I might be more excited than the kids! Xx
