Google Earth Plug-in: Knowsley Safari Park

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


Knowsley Safari Park is a tourist attraction in the town of Prescot, in the borough of Knowsley near Liverpool, England. Situated on the famous estate of Lord Derby, the vast reserve is home to many different animals including elephants, giraffes, lions, tigers and baboons. The Derby Estate have a tradition of keeping animals, ever since the famous artist and nonsense-poet Edward Lear was employed there in the 19th century to paint pictures of the Earl's collection. It is open to the public and it offers a bus tour service, or customers may drive around the park in their own vehicles.

The baboons in particular have attracted attention for their loutish behaviour. Spoof TV presenter Alan Partridge remarked of monkeys that "if you’ve been to Knowsley Safari Park and they’re pulling the wipers off your windscreen and nicking your hub caps, you lose sympathy."

The park was also home to a former RAF airfield which closed at the end of World War II.
