Opening Times

We’re open throughout the year, except Christmas Day, with plenty of FREE car parking.

As of 2022, the Cotswold Wildlife Park will remain closed during the last three weeks of January and the first week of February; except from at weekends when the Park will be open from 10am until 4:30pm or dusk (whichever is earlier, with last admission being at 3:00pm). This is to allow for essential maintenance to be carried out.

Our Madagascar exhibit closes at 3.00pm in winter and 3.30pm in summer, this is to ensure the inhabitants of this enclosure have plenty of time to settle for the evening.

How long should I allow for my visit?

Be sure to allow at least 4 hours. With our amazingly diverse collection of species and 160 acres of beautiful parkland there’s a lot to pack in.
