Wildwood Trust, Herne Bay

Wildwood Trust, Herne Bay, is Kent’s best British wildlife park. Home to over 200 native animals, past and present and set in 40 acres of beautiful ancient woodland where visitors can see bears, wolves, bison, deer, owls, foxes, red squirrels, wild boar, lynx, wild horses, badgers and beavers plus many more. The Wildwood Trust charity is dedicated to saving Britain’s most threatened wildlife. 

They have talks on a variety of animals throughout the day – from bears to owls and otters, as well as a birds of prey display. The children will love watching the wolves roam in their woodland enclosure, or to see the rescued bears play fighting in their pool.

During the school holidays they usually have a lot of workshops and activities on offer so have a look at what’s available before you visit. And, if the kids need to let off some steam, they can certainly burn off some energy here! There is a great adventure park with climbing walls, rope bridges, slides and scary drop slide.

There are picnic facilities, but a restaurant is available if need be. There is also a chance to ‘Meet the Animal’, where you can get up close and personal with a furry friend.
