We recently visited Cotswold Wildlife Park and its array of animals. Niamh was feeling unwell in the morning, so we set off just before midday, stopped at the M&S garage for picnic lunch provisions, and arrived around 12.30 with lots to cram in!
We had a great day. I think the park offers great value for money. There are lots of animals and exhibits all divided into sections to explore. Lots of the favourites – penguins, giraffes, red pandas, lion cubs and a whole farm section.
There is a little train (£1) that loops around the estate – good for getting your bearings. It was running on the day we were there despite the website saying it was out of season.
Walk through exhibits, including lemurs and sloths! The bird section was closed due to bird flu precaution, but we did see birds in other protected areas.
There weren’t many staff around, so you couldn’t ask questions, although I think there are feeding time sessions throughout the day.
Great adventure play areas to suit all ages.
Planning to return at the end of summer with a whole day to explore!
