Opening Times

Please note that as of the end of the day on 23rd March, Wingham Wildlife Park will be temporarily closed due to the ongoing situation surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak. When we return from this closure, our usual hours of operation are as follows:

We are open all-year-round, 7 days-a-week, apart from the Christmas period when we are closed on the 25th of December.

Winter (October – March) 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Summer (April – September) 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Last admission is 1 hour before park closing and our indoor play area and restaurant are open from 10:00am until 5:00pm (earlier closing time applies during the winter season – please call ahead for details if required).

Some animal exhibits may close up to 30 minutes before the rest of the park.
