You can find us easily from the A38. Take the Plympton turn off at Deep Lane Junction. Follow the brown "Wildlife Park" tourist information signs through Langage to the village of Sparkwell. Pass through the village and you'll find us approximately 300 yards outside the village.
There is ample free parking adjacent to the main entrance. Disabled parking facilities are available outside the Jaguar Restaurant at the top of the drive. Should you wish to make use of disabled parking, please first pay at the main gate before proceeding to the top of the drive.
Bus services are usually reliable. Timetables are available here. Please note that the type of bus used by Target Travel for this route is the small type with a small staircase up to the driver. Parents travelling on their own may find it difficult to get their push chair onto the bus without help.
Route 59 operates from Monday to Saturday (excluding Bank Holidays). There is no service on Sundays. The 59 leaves Royal Parade (stop A10) in Plymouth City Centre, takes around 30 minutes and stops at our main gate.
