Cotswold Wildlife Park Visitor Information

July 2022

Please read the following information ahead of your visit.

ADVANCE E-TICKETS UPDATE:  Save money by purchasing your entrance ticket online before your visit.  Available dates shown in green. Click here to buy your E-tickets.

Please note: During the school holidays, we cannot guarantee entry unless you buy E-tickets online before your visit (subject to availability). E-tickets go on sale up to 4 days before your visit (subject to availability), allowing you to check the weather.  Available dates are shown in green. To avoid queuing, we advise arriving after our peak times (which are tending to be between 10.30am – 12.00 noon). We’re currently open until 6.00 pm (last admission at 4.00 pm) so there’s plenty of time to enjoy the Park if you arrive later in the day.

For all other ticket options (including day tickets and season tickets), please click here.

In line with Government guidance, the following measures will be in place:

  • Indoor exhibits, including the Tropical House and ‘Madagascar’, will be open. The Park reserves the right to review which attractions will be accessible to the public.
  • The Adventure Playground will be open. Children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times and use of playground equipment is at your own risk.
  • Due to avian influenza restrictions recently imposed by DEFRA, the Lake area and outside area of Little Africa are closed for the time being. Further restrictions may be in place around the Park.


  • Dogs are allowed in the Park, provided that they are kept on a lead and under adult control at all times.

As with all public attractions, we rely on our visitors respecting one another’s space.  It is recommended that face coverings are worn in indoor areas.

If you are feeling vulnerable, or at all worried about visiting at this time, please visit at a later date.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, do not visit the Park.

Your patience and understanding throughout this ever-evolving situation is appreciated. Circumstances may change and the Park reserves the right to adjust these conditions at short notice.
