This place is incredible. There are 10 wolves in 4 different enclosures, which doesn't seem a lot and you would think a very quick visit, but how wrong. To enjoy these beautiful creatures you will easily spend hours just watching them and their behaviour; interacting with the volunteers, the other wolves and the visitors at times. The volunteers are incredibly... More

Went for a visit with the family and we all had a great time. The staff were friendly and were very happy to help and very knowledgeable about the wolves. When we got to the end enclosure the owner was happy to open the photography areas which is a side area with a few holes out of the fence where... More

On our way home after a week-end break in Berkshire, we had a bit of time to spare, so looked on-line to see if there were any nearby attractions. Although never having heard of it, we thought the UK Wolf Conservation Trust sounded interesting. We'd seen wolves at Paradise Park, Broxbourne, and also at the Highland Wildlife Park, near Aviemore,... More

This is an excellent day out. I had once visited when I was a child and there have been numerous improvements over the years. We purchased a "Walking Member" package which allowed us a walk with the wolves, this consisted of a safety briefing, approx. 2 hours walking in the local countryside (fields) with 3 wolves, a tea/coffee break, and...

Had a great 3 hour visit today. The site isn't huge and at first I was a bit concerned that we would be finished in 20 minutes - how wrong I was! The staff and volunteers were all genuinely enthusiastic and informative. Everyone at the enclosures was happy to talk at length to the visitors and even took some photos... More

The UK Wolf Conservation Trust is just wonderful. The handlers are all so lovely and supplied us with ample tea/coffee and biscuits on our Howl Night (very welcome as it was freezing!) The talk about wolf communication was really interesting, and the staff know their stuff. The actual howling experience was magical, especially with it being on a full moon!... More

If you've not been, then go. If you haven't been in a while, then go. If you've been recently, then go! This place is fantastic, they're doing great work with the conservation of wolves and they offer fantastic interactive events. Everything from the simple "howl night" up to the "Photographic Day" event. We went for the February howl night. The... More
