Wheelchair and mobility access
We are an accessible visitor attraction so visitors with wheelchairs and mobility requirements can relax and enjoy their day.
Although the Curraghs Wildlife Park is located on a 40 acre wetland site, there is accessible paths linking the majority of enclosures.
However, we recognise that the terrain of our site can be challenging for some of our visitors. Use the information and resources below to plan your visit.
- Free disabled parking spaces close to the entrance
- Free entry for registered carers
- Free wheelchair and mobility scooter hire (subject to availability)
- Accessible toilets at the centre of the Park and at the café
Full disabled visitors information can be downloaded.
A manual wheelchair and three mobility scooters are available on request at the Park's reception. Please call us on 01624 693573 to check availability. They are booked on a first come, first served basis and unfortunately we can not guarantee availability. We will hold one for a maximum of 1hr if you call just before setting off to the Park, which will be released to other users if you fail to turn up within the hour.
Unfortunately Curraghs Wildlife Park does not permit the admittance of assistance dogs as we are unable to control the associated bio-security risks and prevent animal distress. We have considered the advice of BIAZA (the professional body representing zoos and aquariums in UK and Ireland) and the layout of our Park in making this decision, on a full risk assessment it was not possible to provide a safe route through the Park for dogs or with consideration of our animals.
Disabled Visitors receive the Concession Rate for entry to the Park. Registered carers receive free entry when with their care receiver. Please see the Opening Times and Prices page for more details.
