Everyone can experience a wild adventure at Wild Place Project! We are dedicated to providing the best possible experience for all of our visitors, so anyone can discover our amazing animals, acres of beautiful woodland and our stunning Tower Meadow.
This means we work hard to make as much of our site accessible
as possible, whilst keeping the ‘wild’ experience our visitors love!

What to expect on your visit
We know that visiting a new place can be overwhelming – particularly when there are lots of exciting animals to see and plenty of other people around the site. To help visitors know what to expect, we have created a social story
with examples of the buildings, people and exhibits they might come across.
Explore the woodland like never before
Our award-winning Bear Wood
exhibit was designed with accessibility at its heart, including a fully ramped walkway with lowered signs and viewing windows for wheelchair users. The 700-metre timber path winds between the trees, making a previously inaccessible area of woodland available to all. We are especially proud of our RICS Award recognising Bear Wood’s social impact, including our accessibility!
See if you can spot bears, wolves, wolverines and our adorable lynx kittens roaming below!
A paw-some helping hand!
We welcome accredited assistance dogs at Wild Place Project. There are just a few areas they can’t enter, and they need to wear an identifying harness, jacket or lead slip. Full information can be found here
Carers go free
Adults and children with disabilities can bring a carer with them free of charge when visiting. Evidence of eligibility is needed, which can include a Blue Badge, statement of special educational needs from LEA or NHS, or a letter from a medical professional on NHS headed paper.
