Woburn Safari Park
Open today from 1000 until 1800
There are two parts to the park; the drive through safari and the walkabout enclosures on foot. The drive through safari is just great; animals roam freely in the fairly spacious enclosures, at times up close and personal with the cars, overlooked carefully by the rangers in jeeps. Rhinos, elephants, bison, deer, lions, monkeys, bears and many more wander around, clearly visible in their environments, from your car on the winding tracks. You are free to take your time as long as the car in kept moving, our son (and us) throughly enjoyed it. Afterwards we wandered around the smaller enclosures on foot which were interesting and varied, displaying a range of smaller animals. On a cold Winter's day in December we easily killed four hours...during the summer we could see how a whole day could effortlessly be spent in the park complete with picnic. Our one other piece of advice would be to avoid the restaurant - horribly overpriced and appalling food quality, and we are not particularly fussy! Go prepared with a pack up and thermos. Overall good value for money. Order tickets online beforehand and you can save £1 per person on the ticket price, annual tickets are available too.
Seasonal opening hours, not open every week day in winter, please check site to check open on your day of travel here.

Wonderful place, we have never been so close to animals and my son was amazed when we had to wait for a Rhino to cross the road in front of us. There were literally Giraffes being ushered away from the roads by staff, it was incredible. Each time we go we manage to see the lions and tigers and the wonderful brown bear. My son also LOVES the soft play and the train that does a circuit of the whole park. There is too much to write in one small review, as the penguins, giant tortoises and sealions are also mesmerising! My suggestion is to take your own food as the selection for kids is not huge although one cafe is more focussed on the kids packed lunches. Great areas to sit and picnic if you want too. Amazing place and good for rain or shine as the safari is of course seen from your car! and the softplay is also inside the huge Arc.

Loads to do here! My daughter loved the drive through monkey enclosure. Safari drive can be quite long at busy periods do take snacks/ something to occupy. After the drive there are lots of animal demonstrations, small train, boating lake, soft play, cafes etc. Can easily make a whole day if this. It's quite expensive but you can use clubcard vouchers which makes it very reasonable.

Santa's Grotto is set up in the mammoth play ark for a couple of weeks over Christmas. It is absolutely delightful and very festive. For just £7.50 per child (babies go free), kids get to enjoy an hour in Santa's grotto, decorating cookies, making Christmas cards and listening to stories and meeting the big man himself. Each child receives a present from Santa and there is plenty of time for photos. Additionally there are refreshments for the kids and tea, coffee and mince pies for the parents, at no extra charge. A perfect morning.
