Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens
Animal Collection / Zoo
One of Oxfordshire’s top attractions and one of the most beautiful zoological collections in the country is Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens. Get eye-to-eye with Giraffe, Walk with lemurs or watch rhinos graze on the Manor House lawns.
Many of the animals are rare and endangered, visitors can walk through the Madagascar enclosure with free-roaming lemurs and see meerkats, penguins and tropical birds in the exotically landscaped Walled Gardens. This is particularly colourful mid to late summer.
Elsewhere as visitors meander around the Park, amongst the animals to be seen are rhinos, lions, giraffes and, for the first time at the Park, anteaters. Indoor exhibits include the Reptile House, Invertebrate House, Tropical House and Farmyard Barn.
Visitors can enjoy a picnic, ride on the narrow-gauge railway and adventure playground.
Facilities are excellent for both able-bodied and disabled visitors with wheelchair access to all exhibits and to the cafeteria which serves hot and cold meals throughout the year.
Open every day (except Christmas Day)
Open from 10am
Last admissions at 4.30pm (British Summer Time) 3.30pm (Winter/GMT)
