Birdland: over 140 species of exotic birds and the only group of King Penguins in the UK

Animal Attractions

There’s plenty for animal lovers to enjoy in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds; the Cotswold Wildlife Park houses one of the country’s finest animal collections with everything from rhinos and giraffes to sloths and meerkats, Crocodiles of the World is the UK’s only crocodile zoo, while Birdland has the only group of king penguins in the UK. Or if you’re looking for a family day out to meet your favourite farm animals then head to Cogges or Fairytale Farm.

Once a year there’s also the opportunity to see Amazing Animals at Heythrop Zoological Gardens, where they train non-human stars of stage and screen!
