Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens

Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens exhibits over 260 different species of animals and boasts the largest privately owned zoological collection in the UK by species. Set in 160 acres of landscaped parkland and gardens two miles south of Burford, the park attracts around 350,000 people annually. The park, which was established in 1970, relies entirely on visitors to fund its staff and animals. It also operates a thriving education programme, numerous endangered species breeding programmes and several vital conservation projects in the wild. From hands-on experiences and animal adoptions to videos and photos from the park, there’s something for everyone at Cotswold Wildlife Park. Take a ride on the narrow-gauge railway for a bird’s eye view of the park and look out for the penguin feeding, which takes place every day at 11am and 3pm in the Walled Garden. Keepers will be on hand to answer your questions. Visitors should also head to the spectacular Madagascar walk-through at 12 noon to find out more about the fascinating creatures of this unique island and the conservation projects that the park is involved in.

Great day out for grand parents and grand children alike, great garden with unusual looking plants interspersed with animals that will delight, a great playground with the kind of unusual features like a vertical slide that have the kids going round and round to slide down again and to finish off a ride round the park on a narrow gauge train (diesel steam look a like, so not quite perfect for granddad but the kids don't care). Great day out. Kids 2-7, grand parents old.
