Attraction Information

Take a walk on the wild side at Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens!

Gaze at the Asiatic Lions lazing around in their enclosure and look a giraffe in the eye at the Giraffe Walkway. See the stunning White Rhinos on the lawn of the Gothic Manor House. Make sure you don't miss the daily Penguin Talk & feed at 11am and 3pm. 

Discover Cotswold’s huge collection of over 130 species of birds. Come across all sorts - from Emus, Cassowary, Owls, Pelicans, and Vultures, to the world’s biggest bird, the Ostrich, and everything in between. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Flamingos and Pelicans when you pass by the lake! Feeling brave? Take a peek into the Reptile House for an up-close encounter with giant anacondas, crocodiles and deadly snakes.

It’s not just animals you can have fun with at Cotswold. Take a ride on the narrow-gauge railway, or explore the stunning gardens and parkland to see cacti, succulents and tropical planting in the walled garden in the summer months. Energy still left in the tank? Run wild in the amazing adventure playground, or climb 20 feet in the air on the scary sky maze. It’s going to be one wild day out!

  • See over 260 different species of animals
  • Enjoy the beautiful gardens
  • Have fun in the adventure playground

Good Morning 3 out of 5 stars

We filled a cold morning seeing the great variety of animals. There is quite a lot of walking for young children, but all flat and hard core tracks. Felt it was a bit pricey, and would have liked a bit more staff presence and interaction to ask questions about the different animals.


Great day out with this kids! 5 out of 5 stars

I visited the park last weekend with my kids and had an amazing time. The parking was free, lots of animals to see and beautiful gardens to walk around. The park was very clean and well looked after. The admission prices i thought were very reasonable. Would recommend to anyone!
