WINTER OPENING TIMES: Cotswold Wildlife Park is open daily from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm (with last admission being at 3:00 pm).

Our Madagascar exhibit closes at 3:00 pm in winter and 3:30 pm in summer, this is to ensure the inhabitants of this enclosure have plenty of time to settle for the evening.

Please note: Our winter opening times change from Monday 8th January 2024. Cotswold Wildlife Park will remain CLOSED on WEEKDAYS ONLY from 8th January until 8th February (re-opening on Friday 9th February 2024); EXCEPT FOR WEEKENDS when the Park will be OPEN from 10.00 am until 4:00 pm or dusk (whichever is earlier, with last admission being at 3:00 pm). This is to allow for essential maintenance to be carried out.

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.
