Go Wild in the Cotswolds!
A fantastic day out for all the family. Stroll around the Park 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 and Zebras 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.
Take a ride on the Bella the Train around the Park, explore the adventure playground or do a Brass Rubbing in the Manor House. Discover the Farmyard with Goat petting area, guinea pigs, rabbits and other farm animals.
If you’re brave why not visit our Reptile house with venomous snakes including Black Mambas, giant Anacondas and Morelet’s Crocodiles to name but a few. If that wasn’t enough then peek in our dark Bat House. Alternatively creep into the recently renovated Insect House with Scorpions, spiders, cockroaches and other bugs, which was opened by Bear Grylls.
The stunning gardens and themed borders, such as the cactus borders make a beautiful backdrop to the animals. There are many mature trees such as the Giant Wellingtonia tree that can be seen from miles away and the 600 year old Oak Tree; along with many containers and overflowing hanging baskets around the Park. The Park is wheelchair and pushchair friendly.
The Restaurant has been totally refurbished in 2013 and serves hot food, hot and cold drinks, snacks and cakes. Also around the Park are Kiosks serving drinks, ice creams, hot dogs and a Milkshake Kiosk. Otherwise there are plenty of picturesque picnic areas. At the end of the day why not visit our gift shop, where you can purchase Animal Encounters, Adoptions or Season Tickets.
