Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens

A fantastic day out in the Cotswolds for all the family awaits at the Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens - dogs are welcome too!

Cotswold Wildlife Park is set in 160 acres of parkland and gardens around a listed Victorian Manor House and has been open to the public since 1970.

Stroll around Cotswold Wilidlife Park & Gardens and enjoy uninterrupted views of the animals, so it feels as though you are in a wild setting. There are animals galore that you can get up close to. Watch Rhinos graze on the lawns in front of the Gothic Manor House.

Walk up the Giraffe walkway and get eye-to-eye with these amazing creatures or explore the Walled Garden’s Tropical House with free roaming sloth, birds and bats. Watch the Penguin’s being fed and then get up close with the Lemurs in their free-roaming Madagascar Exhibit. Why not take a ride on ‘Bella the Train’ around the Park, or explore the extensive adventure playground.
