We have some fabulous local tourist spots here in the Staffordshire Moorlands – one of which is the Peak Wildlife Park.

Situated at Winkhill, the park is home to a multitude of animals – from otters, lemurs, sheep, goats, rabbits, penguins,meerkats, wallabies, pigs, red squirrels, zebras and much more, including a giant African tortoise.

The zoo was originally known as Blackbrook Zoological Park, but entered administration in 2014 and closed. It was then reopened under its current name in 2015.

When visiting the park, there is also opportunities to walk with some of the animals, namely the red squirrels, wallabies, penguins, lemurs, giant rabbits, and even, at set times of the day, with their two Kune Kune Pigs.

For those with youngsters in the family, there is not only an outdoor area for them to play in, but also a large indoor play area with lots of adventurous climbs and slides, as well as seating for the rest of the family to sit and relax.

The park also has a range of food and refreshments on offer including freshly cooked pizzas. And there is a well-stocked shop full of all things animal focused for those who fancy indulging in taking home a souvenir from their visit.

Our News Editor Belinda recently visited Peak Wildlife Park and took these photos to share with our readers.
