Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens

Take a break on animal adventure at the Cotswold Wildlife Park! Encounter Anteaters, peer at Giraffes, roar at the Lions or waddle like a Penguin, in over 160 acres of beautiful parklands.

Take a ride on the railway around the Park or climb into the tree house in the adventure playground. You’re never too old to visit, there’s something for everyone. Whether it’s the beautiful planting, or over 250 different species of animals, insects and birds. It’s wheelchair and pushchair friendly!

Take a picnic and watch the Rhinos and Zebras while you eat or enjoy lunch in the Oak Tree Restaurant.

Take shelter inside our Reptile House (if you dare) and peak at the snakes and crocodiles or hide away in the dark Bat House. Creep into the Tropical house and see if you can spot the sleepy Sloths or leap about with the Lemurs in their walk-through enclosure so much to do…!
