Holiday Inn Express Swindon Centre
A modern hotel near the train station in central Swindon, with breakfast included and free WiFi. Holiday Inn Express Swindon City Centre hotel is in the centre of town and a quick walk from restaurants and bars, as well as shopping at the McArthur Glen Designer Outlets.
After joining the coach at one of our convenient local pick up points, we make our way to stunning Longleat, a real haven of nature that we know you’re going to love. Enjoy ample free time exploring and having fun, then re-join the coach and travel on to your overnight hotel in the heart of Swindon. Once you have checked in, head out into town for a drink and a great bite to eat at one of the city's many excellent restaurants.
After a good breakfast check out of the hotel and join us on our visit to the Cotswold Wildlife Park for an afternoon on the wild side! Once you have had your fill of wild animals and stunning gardens, re-join the coach mid-afternoon for our return journey home back to Wales.
Cotswold Wildlife Park
Take a walk on the WILD SIDE! Stroll around the Park and get eye-to-eye with giraffes, watch rhinos graze on the Gothic manor house lawns, walk with lemurs or take a ride on Bella the Train.
The stunning gardens and themed borders, make a beautiful backdrop the animals. With over 260 different species of animals in over 120 acres of parkland, there's plenty of space to relax and get closer to wildlife!
Kids of all ages will love the adventure playground in the woods with interconnecting tree-houses, rope bridges and slides. Don't miss the Children's Farmyard with goat petting area, daily penguin feeding and talk at 11am and 3pm, and Lemur feed and talk at 12 noon in their walk-through enclosure.
They have one of the largest reptire collections in the UK with crocodiles, lizards, frogs, snakes, such as green anacondas, and venemous snakes including the black mambas. Other indoor exhibits include Insect House, Bat House, Little Africa and Tropical House with free roaming sloths, bats and birds.
In the warmer months, tree ferns give the feel of a rainforest by the train station. Whilst the arid beds with cacti and succulents in the Old Walled Garden evoke the natural habitat of the meerkats. Swathes of ornamental grasses and perennials enfold the rhino paddock. Traditional herbaceous borders, spectacular specimen trees and spacious lawns surround the manor house. The gardens look good throughout the seasons with the winter gardens, thousands of spring bulbs and seasonal displays.
Longleat House & Gardens
Longleat, nestled within 900 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped grounds, is home to the UK’s original Safari Park, one of the best examples of Elizabethan architecture, and an abundance of exciting attractions including Jungle Kingdom and Animal Adventure where you can get up-close and personal with truly amazing animals. Why not jump on board the Longleat Railway for an exciting ride around the park and take a trip on the Jungle Cruise boat, where you’ll experience the thrill of their sea lions as they swim alongside you plus an unmissable opportunity to see their magnificent gorillas. Alternatively, escape into a world of exploration and fun! Let the kids run riot in the incredible Adventure Castle, complete with rope bridges, zip wires, slides and a medieval keep or the famous Longleat Hedge Maze and join in the mayhem on their Rockin’ Rhino ride. For those looking for something more sedate the impressive Longleat House and Grounds has it all as one of the finest Elizabethan stately homes in the country.
