Set in 24 acres of beautiful countryside, the Lake District Wildlife Park has over 100 species of animals. I am usually opposed to zoos and such but these animals are beautifully looked after in wide open lakeland moorlands and are well cared for.
Starting life as a farm, it became Trotters World of Animals and developed into the Lake District Wildlife Park. It has become a centre for conservation, education about animals.
It is about fifteen minutes from Keswick.
