The Lake District Wildlife Park is set in 25 acres of parkland, situated at the western end of Bassenthwaite Lake, approximately ten minutes drive from Keswick and a very scenic 50 minute drive from Ambleside.

Formerly known as Trotters World of Animals, the attraction started 20 years ago as a farm park with rare breeds and birds of prey. Over the years it has evolved into a conservation park with over 100 species.

The Grandad of the park is Brian the Lar Gibbon – he is the oldest in Europe and has pride of place in the centre of the park where he and his family can be seen swinging from the massive Oak tree.
