Lake District Wildlife Park image

The Lake District Wildlife Park, set just ten minutes from Keswick, is the only wildlife park in north Cumbria.

Wander around our beautiful 24 acre parkland and see over 100 species. The magical Bird of Prey flying displays have been a regular feature since the park opened and we have gathered an eclectic mix of over 100 species from Anaconda to Zebra.

The Granddad of the park is Brian the Lar Gibbon – he is the oldest in Europe and has pride of place in the centre of the park where he and his family can be seen swinging form the massive Oak tree.

We joined the Zoo Federation (now BIAZA) in 2002 and over the years we have successfully worked with Zoo stud books to breed rarer species like Canadian Lynx, Asian Fishing Cats and Ring Tailed Lemurs to name just three.

Come and meet us – it’s a fun day out for all ages.
