“Fantastic day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

We visited as a family group with 2 children aged 9, and 6, and it was fantastic place. The children loved it, they thought the meerkats and otters cute, the interaction with the lemurs funny, were in awe of the tigers and the white wolves. They even held a snake and stroked a bearded dragon. The animals were in large enclosures and the staff were very friendly and very knowledgable. We found the admission charge reasonable, and well worth it. We took a picnic and there are plenty of tables in the park as well as a picnic barn. A fab time was had by all :-)

“A great place to visit, particularly with a young child”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Although relatively small - it is a lovely place to visit. The animals etc all seem to have plenty of room and the various shows put on every hour are informative & well done. This year we were particularly interested to see the rescued tigers. It is a small classy joint.

Cafe prepares some good food for lunch - would recommend

“Lovely family day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

What a lovely day spent at Woodside Wildlife & Falconry Park Nr Lincoln. This was our first visit but it won't be our last. The animals and birds are all well looked after and seem very happy, all the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The park was compact and access very good. There is a small café which sold very freshly made sandwiches, lovely homemade cakes and jacket potatoes. We watched the animal show, which was great fun and I'm sure the animals enjoyed it as much as we did. Great day out for all the family, something for everyone, well worth a visit.

“Fantastic fun for all the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Me, my parents and younger sister spent a day at Woodside in early July. This is something we do every year which shows just how brilliant the place is.

There are various activities and sessions throughout the day which are fun for all the family. The day we went was very hot which meant the birds didn't want to fly as much in the falconry show, despite this the show was still informative and very enjoyable.

I believe the park is a small family run business which means all of the staff are extremely approachable and the whole park has a personal feel to it.

I would highly recommend this attraction for a family day out. We will most definitely be returning next year!

“Smashing little zoo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We didn`t really know quite what to expect, here, but we were pleasantly surprised. The zoo is well laid out and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We were privileged to witness the feeding of the White Wolves. These magnificent creatures are in a lovely, spacious, natural, enclosure and appear very content.

The "animal show" was splendid, with trained birds and animals putting on a display of their instinctive behaviour. All in all, a lovely afternoon.
