We chose to visit on a Wednesday when no pre booking is required.

Parking at the entrance for a dozen or so cars but a massive field just a few years away provides an overflow facility.

The volunteer staff were friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the wonderful creatures they are helping to conserve. We split our visit in two with lunch at a nearby pub recommended by the trust and rated highly on tripadvisor.

Not the easiest animals to photograph / video being enclosed as they are behind a see through wire fence so my tip is take as many shots as you can to ensure you some really good ones for a memory.

Sadly it appears from the UKWCT website that there will be no further admissions to the general public after the end of August so if you intend to see these creatures then don't hang about.

Search for them on YouTube to get an excellent idea of what this place has to offer. It goes without saying that each and every wolf appeared to be in immaculate condition bearing in mind of course that shedding their winter coat means that one or two of them seem to have had an unusual short back and sides appearance.

Would recommend. Please don't miss out if you are fascinated by these lovely creatures.

We had been meaning to visit for months and finally had a few hours free on a Wednesday, which is when the Trust is open to the public to visit. Free parking!

My friend is registered disabled and we visit a LOT of different attractions, zoos & wildlife centres so were surprised that no discount was applied for the disabled. We appreciate it’s a charity but so are the majority of other places we visit, and they still offer a discount. They do discounts for OAPs but sadly we’re still a bit too youthful for that.

Nevertheless, we paid to go in & were told tha5 feeding started soon. It wasn’t busy and it meant we had a front row view of feeding time.

We mooched to the far end and found a couple of goats who entertained us fir a few minutes (we later found out they are the natural lawn mowers for the Trust - fantastic!)

We stopped by each set of wolves & a lovely volunteer told us all about each wolf as we went.

There’s an education centre with information, pictures, books, and a video on loop.

The shop is back where the entrance is and all the staff were very friendly. We went away with some little souvenirs of our trip.

We were only there for about an hour but we’re very glad we went & saw the beautiful wolves!

We may well go back for one if the walks or a howl night soon

This was one of the best experiences.. the wolves are really well kept and loads of open space for them. The keepers were really knowledgable about various conservation projects around the world..

Beautifully located and easy to reach for a memorable day. It was fantastic to hear the wolves and to see them all interacting with each other. The tour was informative and fun. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Make sure to pack your lunch and enjoy the view overlooking the wolves. I enjoyed buying items from the gift shop before departing. Highly recommend visiting this place before it closes to the public this summer.

As a family Christmas present we went to a ‘Howl night’ as my son had volunteered here last year.
Lovely and very well informed staff, had a talk about the wolves and wolf behaviour, saw the ‘food kitchen’ and really enjoyed getting pretty close to, seeing and hearing the wolves.
The ethos of education and conservation was very apparent and they do other experiences eg photography and childrens visits.
Highly recommend it.
There are picnic tables. We weren’t sure what Friday traffic would be like so we left early and took a picnic. Tea, coffee and biscuits were served too.
