Visited twice in last month with grandchildren. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice medium size park with plenty to do for half day or full day visit. Good range of exhibits from butterflies to tigers, meerkats to alligators. Hourly shows are good with really knowledgeable and helpful staff. Price is fair especially as they encourage you to bring your own picnic rather than having to buy at overpriced shops.

The Woodside Wildlife Park is a great day out for all ages. There is a wide range of animals to be seen including tigers, white wolves and lynx plus many other interesting species. A lovely rain forest has been created for some exotic birds, butterflies and reptiles and there is also a separate butterfly house where the butterflies fly freely around you.
There is a cafe on site but we chose to take a picnic and there are plenty of areas with benches and tables to sit at and eat at leisure. An indoor area is also available should the weather not be so good. There is also a souvenir shop selling the usual types of items relevant to the park.
There are also various demonstrations taking place throughout the day including animal feeding times and a falconry show.
When the kids get tired with looking at the animals there is a very good outdoor play area to release their energy.
A great day out for all the family.

Visited this wildlife & falconry centre today and really enjoyed it. Many animals to see including raccoons, white Wolves, tigers as well as many more and various birds of prey. Displays/demonstrations programmed through the day including meet the reptiles and various feeding. You can book and pay a fee to have experiences with certain animals. We booked for the Lemur Experience. You sign a disclaimer when booking although there were no issues at all with our visit to the Lemur Enclosure. We were met by a keeper who lead us to the lemurs etc. He was very polite, informative and was more than happy to answer questions and offer much info about Lemurs.
The attraction also has a tropical area including a small butterfly house. Cafe with high chairs. Was a little disappointed to not see anyone wipe down the tables. It's a self clearing (customer places tray of dishes in the stand) and various people came and went without a cleaning between. Toilets on site. Picnic areas indoors and out. With a sand play area and a further climbing area for younger children. The gift shop was a little disappointing. Not much for adults to buy, mainly kids toys and teddies. Plenty of parking spaces. Meal Worms available to buy to give to certain animals. A fantastic day out.

My Mother in law and Sister in law had been to Woodside wildlife park a couple of times before.
They begged us to go with them as they have no transport.
It's a 45 minute drive from Grimsby.
I must say my wife and I were pleasantly surprised with the park.
The Animal Show is a must it's only on once a day so don't miss it.
A variety of Animals enjoying performing to an audience Don't get me wrong this is not a Circus. It's clear all the animal park keepers/Staff, clearly love the animals and the animals respond.
So don't miss the feeding of the Tiger Wolves and all the other animals. Also the Bird and Reptile shows.
Drinks like Tea very reasonable a big pot of tea for £1.50 but food expensive so if you have a family bring pack up there a plenty of picnic tables.
This place is a total different experience from the Yorkshire wildlife park. We enjoyed the experience equally.
We will return next year.

Visited on my way to Lincoln. Spent a good hour and a half listening to feeding talks and seeing the animals. Decided to stay and watch the animal show and so glad I did. Very entertaining and informative. Super morning out.
