Reasons for trip


My birthday treat in February was to be a trip to the Peak Wildlife Park at Winkhill, Leek, Staffordshire. However, storm Eunice put a stop to my visit on my birthday as the wildlife park was closed due to bad weather. The visit was rescheduled and so off I went with my other half, my brother and sister-in-law. We weren’t disappointed, we had a fabulous time when we visited in March and couldn’t have wished for better weather. The park itself is situated in the Staffordshire Peak District on the edge of the National Park and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. The walkways are very wide and the ground itself is relatively suitable for people with mobility issues. My brother used his mobility scooter whilst we were at the park, he managed to get around quite well. There are a wide variety of animals to see , lemurs, penguins, hogs, wallabies, meerkats, goats, zebras, fred the tortoise who has been at the park for many years , rabbits etc. There is a cafe with indoor and outdoor seating which sells a wide range of snacks and drinks. Toilets are available outside the cafe. There are children’s play areas. I would highly recommend a visit, the park is suitable for all age groups and it was wonderful to actually come face to face with so many beautiful animals .
