Overview
More
Set in lush sub-tropical gardens, Newquay Zoo is home to more than 1,000 of the world's rare and exciting creatures. Just a short walk from Newquay's town centre and world famous surfing beaches, the Zoo is both one of Cornwall's most exciting visitor attractions and a leading conservation charity. It's the only place in Cornwall where you can see lions devour their lunch before taking a leisurely stroll through a tropical rainforest, surrounded by free flying birds. Keeper talks and animal feeds take place throughout the day but if you fancy an even closer animal encounter we offer visitors the chance to meet and feed our cheeky lemurs, friendly penguins and impossibly cute meerkats! See wildebeest, waterbuck, nyala antelope and zebra roaming in our African Savannah and enjoy some familiar faces in The Village Farm - one of our most popular exhibits which includes many children's favourites such as pot-bellied pigs, African pygmy goats, turkeys and striped squirrels. And if all that isn't enough to keep the kids amused, we also have activity trails, face painting, a children's play area, dragon maze...and much more. Besides enjoying a great family day out, when you visit Newquay Zoo you'll also be supporting our vital education, research and conservation work, all designed to protect endangered animals from extinction. We're playing a key role in the international effort to save animals through conservation breeding.

As most people are saying, this isn’t a wildlife park with thousands of acres, however it makes for a nice few hours with children. We caught a couple of feeding times, however most of the animals were alert and active when this wasn’t the case....More

Newquay isn't going to wow you with elephants and giraffes - it hasn't the space. It does however have African rather than Asian lions, which is rare and there are the usual penguins, meerkat, small primates and a lovely open tropical house. Unlike a lot...More

Quite disappointed with the variety of animals. The only BIG animals were 3 lions, 3 zebras and wildebeest. No elephants, giraffes, hippos, rhinos, tigers, leopards, crocodiles, alligators, flamingos, hyenas, gorillas, chimpanzees etc. Also, a lot of the enclosures are so overgrown you could not see...More

I think it’s cheaper online but you don’t have to book a specific day which is handy!

Yes I found we saw more animals in Dec than we did in the summer .there was less foliage ( and visitors) so the animals could be seen better.
