What can I do?
Cotswold Wildlife Park
Cotswold Wildlife Park houses all sorts of amazing animals including penguins, giraffes, rhinos and lions. The park is part safari, where you’re in the car, and part zoo, where you can get out and walk around. Why not pack a picnic the night before and eat it overlooking the zebra, camel and rhino enclosures?
Cotswold Water Park has every activity you can think of available to try. Activities on offer include a high ropes course, angling, horse riding, shooting, canoeing/kayaking, sailing, swimming, wakeboarding, inflatable rides and water-skiing, to name a few. There are also lots of walking trails, picnic sites and nature hot spots to explore.
Bourton-On-The-Water is considered one of the prettiest villages in the UK. Sometimes referred to as the Venice of the Cotswolds, this gorgeous little village is great to explore. We recommended visiting the Birdland park containing over 500 birds or a ‘Bloody Bourton’ guided walking tour with historical information focused on crime, ghosts and murder.
