Fantastic visit to Knowsley, it was our first time visiting as we were staying nearby.

Been going to Knowsley Safari Park since I was a kid. Always a great day out even though not much has changed for years. However, the new tiger enclosure is fantastic!!! Really enjoyed our trip here, definitely going back again soon!!

There is a large pedestrianised area with rides and shows too though. No car needed 4 that. Think wristbands are 10 each. Includes the train so well worth it 4 the kiddies. Think adults go on rides free with a paid wristband... More
