Discover a new way to experience Yorkshire Wildlife Park and the Yorkshire Hive at the Hex Wildlife Hotel

Extend the fun and adventure for even longer with a stay at the Hex Wildlife Hotel, located within the Yorkshire Hive and nestled right next to the entrance of Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Doncaster – the UK’s No1 walk-through wildlife adventure and home to the largest collection of Polar Bears in England!

With stunning park-side rooms available, you can wake up to breath-taking views of Yorkshire Wildlife Park - you might even spot its magnificent inhabitants, from majestic maned wolves and graceful tapirs, to the sound of sea lions echoing in the distance.*

Or choose a Hive-view room and unwind as you look out over a chilled hub of urban activity; surrounded by boutique stores, brimming with local artisan products and inspiring gift ideas, plus a host of exciting dining options, including Evolution Experience Restaurant, and even 'Uproar!' Indoor Play Barn - there’s always something to do at the Hive!

With free parking also provided, everything you need is conveniently located on-site, making your short break even sweeter! Plus find yourself within an ideal distance of Doncaster town centre, and just around the corner from Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

In 2018, Yorkshire Wildlife Park saw planning permission granted for the development of a new 150-acre site at YWP. 3 years later in 2021 the development was complete and opened to the public, bringing more ground-breaking animal reserves and new species to the Park. 

In 2021 the brand-new Yorkshire Hive also opened to the public, introducing themed restaurant 'Evolution' and indoor play area 'Uproar'. As well as new retail outlets, gift shop and entrance gateway, enhancing visitor facilities and providing a huge boost for the local economy.


*Please note our animals have access to both indoor and outdoor enclosures for their well-being, therefore we cannot guarantee sightings from park view rooms.
