Our bears are currently in torpor for the winter. The bookings page for summer 2020 will be open in February 2020. 

Wildwood Bear Experiences are a unique opportunity to meet and learn all about Wildwood’s two rescued bears with exclusive behind the scenes access. Walk through the bears’ large enclosure to scatter a feed, before meeting the bears and giving them a treat in their smaller enclosure. Then let them out into their large enclosure, where they will sniff out and hunt down the scattered food. Gift vouchers are also available here.

Minimum age: 18yrs.

Participants receive:

  • Park entry for the day
  • 30 minute Bear Experience with a talk from our keepers and the chance to feed the bears
  • £5 Cafe voucher (one per person)
  • Certificate for each participant


Our bears are now in torpor for the winter and will not be active again until early Spring. We will start taking bookings for next year in February 2020 on this page. Gift vouchers are still available to purchase.
