The 70-acre Yorkshire Wildlife Park near Doncaster is the UK’s fastest growing attraction, and is constantly adding new experiences for visitors.

For 2014, the first polar bear in England will arrive to live in a 10-acre reserve divided into four sections, featuring landscaped hills, valleys and a main lake with streams, pools and waterfalls. The environment is designed to stimulate natural behaviour.

Families can enjoy Amur tigers Vladimir and Sayan, among less than 400 left in the world and part of a crucial European-wide breeding programme. Visitors enjoy a bird’s eye view of the tigers from a 150-metre walkway above their reserve.

There are also Amur leopards, the most endangered big cat on the planet. An eight-metre viewing tower and 10-metre glass wall allow you to get really near to these majestic animals and you are also able to get up close to a pride of lions rescued from a rundown zoo in Romania, in Lion Country.

Other highlights include painted hunting dogs, giraffes, zebra and squirrel monkeys.

For younger ones, there is a 600 square-metre indoor play barn and children can enjoy climbing frames, den slides and rope bridges in the Monkey Play House in full view of the new baboon reserve through a glass wall.
