Free Entry to Souths lakes wildlife park

Found 4th Nov 2013

the park will be free for everyone from 4th November to 14th February; and for children to the 9th April.

Winter’s a great time of the year come meet all the latest arrivals including our female snow leopard who arrived just last week and has settled in really well with her mate Wolfgang.

Open every day 10am until 4.30pm, with favourites like hand feed giraffes, hand feed penguins, big cat feeding taking place throughout the day.

The Maki restaurant has a new winter chiller menu with warming soup, freshly griddled Panini’s, jacket potatoes just some of the hot snacks on offer from £2.50, and of course with the free entry you can just pop in for lunch – some choose to prebook if you are short on time!

With only 27days until Santa lands 30th November, elves have started the busy process of building his workshop ready for some toy making action, making sure his home is kitted out with his creature comforts and donkey proofing the nativity stable

I can't see anything about free entry on the website. I know it is on Facebook but does really cover everybody? This seems to be just a bit too good to be true. The amount they make from the cafes and shops surely can't be enough to cover their costs.
Confirmed on their Facebook page…ark

I put this deal on, but didn't see it hiding under new deals so hopefully the one I put on will be cancelled.
Fab deal, they do it every year, covers everyone and a fab day out.
Where is it?
13 seconds and Google lead me to believe it is at

Been there before. They run this every year. They need to take some details at the gates but it is genuinely free. I think they have to take details to cover tax stuff but that's just a guess.

I guess they have to be there anyway to feed the animals and so this way attracts people that may donate or at least purchase stuff from the shops/cafes.
that is WINTER right? better at home.
We went last Feb for free so they must do it every year
Tiger Talk is well worth seeing, well worth for free. They do nice Christmas stuff as well, seeing Santa, etc.
This the place where the tiger mauled and killed the keeper and the owner couldn't say quick enough not his fault and on to blame the keeper.

And? It was the girls fault- she went in the tigers den....
We go up at least once a year, fantastic place for the animals and visitors. I love hand feeding the lemurs and giraffes.
This is a great place to visit. I've always been more than willing to pay for entry in the past and even sponsored a giraffe there once upon a time. This simply has to be HOT.
Entry normally costs around £13.50. Dalton zoo is well worth a visit. Dalton is on the outsirks of Barrow in furness and close to ulverston. Kids love this zoo.
they usually do it every year, they just like a donation in the chairty boxes. great day if you wrap up!
its not a massive zoo like the one at chester but its still a really fun day out as its a lot more interactive since you can join in on things like the giraffe feeding. went a year or so ago when they had a buy one get one free entry during the summer.
