Award-winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park has entered into the prestigious TripAdvisor Hall Of Fame

The innovative walk through park got the honour after winning the influential tourist website’s prized Certificate of Excellence for the fifth year running.

YWP achieved an overall 4.5 out of 5 mark to enter the 2015 TripAdvisor Hall of Fame, which can only happen when an attraction manages five consecutive years of the top award.

Director Cheryl Williams said: “This is a remarkable achievement. We continually strive to improve the visitor experience and this accolade is proof we are succeeding.

“We are committed to animal conservation and to make sure our visitors have a fun, family day when they come to see us. We are delighted that they are obviously enjoying the experience. I would like to thank all those visitors, who rated us.”

YWP has now clocked up an incredible 1,662 Excellent ratings from its 2,605 TripAdvisor reviews with praise coming from groups, families and individual visitors.

Since opening in 2009 YWP has become the UK's fastest growing and most innovative attraction.

Last year 550,000 visitors enjoyed the innovative walk-through experience giving them unrivalled access to some of the most beautiful and endangered animals in the world, including Amur Tigers and Leopards, Giraffes, African hunting dogs, polar bears and many many more.
