 The Park first opened its gates to the public on Good Friday 27th March l970; the weather was fine and admission prices were 5 shillings for adults (25p) and 2 shillings for children (10p). Since then the Park has become a major attraction with one of the most diverse animal collections in the country, many of which are rare and endangered, and plays an active role in numerous important captive breeding programmes. 

Visitors walk around the 140 acres of beautifully landscaped parkland and gardens to see Asiatic lions, Leopards, a trio of young White Rhinos, Bactrian camels and many more.   

The Walled Garden, once the kitchen garden for the Manor House, has been transformed with displays of exotic plants, tender perennials and is the perfect setting for tropical birds, penguins and smaller mammals including the ever-popular meerkats.  Here you will find the Tropical House and, close by, be able to walk with lemurs in the Madagascar enclosure.The Park is open daily from 10am and many families will spend a full day enjoying the relaxed atmosphere, picnicking or eating in the large self-service Oak Tree Restaurant, riding on the train, and playing in the adventure playground.  Facilities are good with wheelchair access to all the enclosures, free parking, Award winning toilet blocks and Gift shop. The Park is a popular venue for school and group visits and was the first wildlife park to be awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.

Situated on the A361 2.5 miles south of Burford  (OX18 4JP)
