 Gift Aid
Always remember to gift aid your ticket price. Gift Aid means we can receive a contribution of 25% of your total ticket price, when it includes the 10% voluntary contribution, from the tax you have already paid to the government. Prices shown above are for our 'normal ticket price' plus the voluntary 10% contribution, meaning the net price i.e. our 'normal ticket price' of admission, before the voluntary donation, in relation to the aforementioned categories, would be 10.41, 8.14, 9.50 and 34.09 respectively. Gift Aid claims can only made in respect of UK taxpayers, where the amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax is at least equal to the tax that will be reclaimed on your donations in the tax year.

Unfortunately we cannot allow dogs on site due to the sensitivity of our wild animals. Please leave your dog(s) at home as leaving any animal in a car can be extremely dangerous for the animal, even for a short time. Any animal left in a car may be reported to the authorities.

Woodland conditions - Footwear

Please note that Wildwood is situated in a natural woodland with natural paths which can become muddy after periods of rain.

Unlike tarmac and pavement that dries quickly after rain, the paths at Wildwood can remain wet for several days after heay rain so we would recommend suitable, waterproof footwear for your visit.
