About Wild Place Project

Grab your very best explorer’s outfit and head out on an adventure to Wild Place Project, where you will discover amazing animals from around the world!
Take a stroll beneath the leafy canopies of Bear Wood, the UK’s largest and most ambitious brown bear exhibit. Look out for wolves, Eurasian lynx and wolverines on the woodland floor below, and marvel as four magnificent brown bears splash around and climb up the trees.
Meet majestic giraffes at eye-level and survey our African grasslands from a special viewing platform. Marvel as five different types of mischievous lemur scamper around your feet in our immersive walk-through. Experience the thrill of seeing cheetahs, wolves and baboons, and learn about protecting habitats both worldwide and on your doorstep.
While you’re at Wild Place Project, do as the animals do and embrace your wild side! Kick off your shoes and tantalise your toes with our Barefoot Trail, run wild between lots of play areas, or fling yourself through the air with Leap of Faith (additional charge applies).
