New hotel opens at Yorkshire Wildlife Park

New audiences will be able to visit the park and spend the night a few meters from the entrance to the animal reserves, hearing the roar of lions and the cry of hyenas at dusk.

Bookings opened yesterday, Monday March 21, for the first phase of the Hex Hotel, during English Tourism Week which runs from March 18-27.

Visitors have flocked to the park to show their support now that Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted and now guests from across the country will be able to combine a visit to the park’s 400 animals from over 70 species with a relaxing luxury hotel break in the heart of Yorkshire.

The hotel is located a few meters from the entrance to the 175-acre animal park.

The Hex is the latest piece in a trilogy of accommodation options at the park, which also offers glamping and camping for those who want the full wildlife park experience.

John Minion, CEO of Yorkshire Wildlife Park, said: “This will be ideal for a getaway or short break for anyone wanting the unique experience of seeing magnificent and endangered animals such as rhinos, giraffes and polar bears.

“We have always been grateful for the level of local and regional support, but the hotel is a game changer for us, opening up the possibility for visitors to come from all over the UK.”

The park has continued to grow with a £50million investment in 2021 opening a new entrance and reserves with sea lions. Meanwhile, their workforce now has a total of 650 staff. Further investments are planned for the next two or three years.

Bosses say the hotel will also transform already popular wedding experiences at the park with nuptials able to stay put before and after their ceremony.

Visitors to the hotel can enjoy a unique walking experience coming almost face to face with some of the world’s most beautiful and rare species.
