Parking is free of charge but we advise arriving early during peak periods to avoid disappointment. Unfortunately, we cannot allow any pets into Wild Place Project under any circumstances, nor can they be left in cars.

We do allow guide dogs, however they have a specific route which means they are unable to go to some of the animal exhibits. You can download the map here. Please ask for more details on arrival.

We have two coach parking spaces, which are strictly limited and must be pre-booked. They will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
