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.

We spent a few hours at the zoo and it was great value for money! There was a good variety of animals, but watching the lions and being so close was incredible!!! Definitely worth a look when visiting Newquay!

We visited in October half term with a four year old, a ten year old and four adults. Not cheap to get in, but of course the cost of the upkeep of the animals and grounds must be enormous We had a lovely stroll round and were very impressed with the gardens, beautifully clean and neat and easy to navigate....

Visited Newquay Zoo last week during our holiday. Firstly, it cost us £37 for 2 adults and a 3 year old... so we were expected good things. Much to our disappointment. We wouldn't pay that much for zoo's in the midlands which are much better. In addition to this we went into the the cafe which was filthy. I believe... More

If you need something to do, whether to keep the little ones quiet or to just indulge yourselves then this is the place. Its a good time, which can take up most of the day if done properly. Located just on the outskirts of newquay town, the zoo is surprisingly big, with animals from all over the planet. You could... More

Turned up on a drizzly Monday and instead of £27 we were expecting to pay for 2 adults and 2 under 3, we paid just 14 and got 2 hot drink vouchers too and could have got free return within the week if we were going to be there. The zoo exhibits were great and varied. The yaki trail kept... More
