Only one word can describe this event.... MAGICAL

Lynne W - Trip Advisor Dec 2020
Had a fabulous experience at the Winter Illuminations at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park on 17th December. 
The illuminations were brilliant, amazing - fabulous! A different array of animals, flowers and imaginary creatures. I loved it.

Great New Years Eve at the park, good to see the park in different seasons
The Winter Illuminations were fantastic and have recommended to friends that have now booked tickets. So worth the visit
