Yorkshire Wildlife Park, a place I have managed to schedule a visit to twice in extreme weather – An endless torrent of rain and the heat that just won’t quit. The images from this latter visit feature in this post and suprisingly, the Polar Bears seemed to enjoy this weather the most as they swan in the lake whilst most of the other animals seemed to be sleeping through the hot day or had hidden themselves completely in the shade or any shelter they could find. A nice game of eye spy!
Located in South Yorkshire on the outskirts of the town of Doncaster, the YWP is well-signed posted off major motorways so it isn’t easy to get lost. YWP is relatively new having only officially opened in 2009 and as of 2016, boasts a number of animal enclosures and an even wider variety of animals of all sizes from across the globe. With so much to see with talks held throughout the school holidays and some weekends, you can easily spend the day here with a number of cafes, play areas and picnic places to cater for families and any hungry bellies!
I hope you enjoy the photos!
