Ticket and Booking Information

Tickets need to be booked in advance by each group and normal entrance prices apply if purchased on the day. The price this year remains at £8 per person. This is still a substantial discount on the usual ticket prices. This price is for both Beavers, accompanying children (2 yrs plus) and adults/senior citizens. There is no car park charge.

The Paradise Wildlife Park entrance fee is normally discounted to £10 per disabled person and £10 per carer so the reduced price of £8 provides an additional discount.

We have a deadline booking date TBC. After this date you will be asked to pay the normal admission prices. All bookings to be made direct with Paradise Wildlife Park on 01992 470490.
