Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Yorkshire's Most Magnificent Attraction 2012

Yorkshire Wildlife Park is South Yorkshire's newest attraction. Situated just outside Doncaster, the park occupies 70 acres of a 260 acre site, offering a unique view into the world of animals with walkthough areas including Lemur Woods and Wallaby Walkabout and South America Viva. New for 2012 Leopard Heights .

The most endangered carnivore in Africa, the Painted Hunting Dog, can be also be seen at the Park, and on the ‘African Plains', zebra, antelope, ankole cattle and ostrich roam free. Other animals include the popular meerkats, racoon dogs and a new herd of Bactrian Camels. 

Regional food is championed at the Wild Café and children love the dropslides and astraslides in the Jungle Play Barn.

We also host education programmes and exciting events, and visitors can experience our unique packages such as ‘Behind the Scenes VIP Tours' and ‘Ranger for a Day'.


A huge congratualtions goes to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, who have been voted Yorkshire's Most Magnificent Attraction 2012. YWP beat over 100 other attractions to win the prestigious award.  

Yorkshire Wildlife Park's Director Cheryl Williams said "We are absolutely delighted to have been voted Yorkshire's Most Magnificent Attraction - this award means so much because it is decided by visitors. We opened YWP in April 2009 with specific goals - to become a dynamic conservation centre, working with communities at home and around the world to help save habitats and wildlife, and to provide our visitors with a unique experience. The biggest compliment from them is that they keep coming back and have voted us winners of this special award. That recognition really is indescribable.

"This award is a brilliant way of stimulating competition and showcasing Yorkshire's diverse range of attractions to the world.

"We are determined to retain the title next year. We are planning a number of exciting developments in the next year, including the arrival this month of giraffes - so the competition has better watch out!"
