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.

Let me just start by saying that I LOVE zoos but this one was a bit disappointing. The food was quit expensive and didn't taste that great, so take your own food with you. The gift shop was really good and we brought a lot...More

Visited during the half term with the children, the zoo is nice enough although after about an hour and a half you’ve literally seen and done everything. Nice cafe, food looked lovely although we didn’t have food just ice cream.

Visited here with the kids to keep them entertained one afternoon, which it did, albeit expensively so-it was a bit pricey for what you got in return. Nevertheless, it was a good afternoon and they enjoyed it, as did we, it kept us all entertained....More

Was impressed with the layout and diverse number of animals, unfortunately had to cut short the visit due to wet weather but would visit again with grandchildren.

If it’s a nice day and the animals are out but you can’t see in a lot of their houses.

Absolutely, Newquay Zoo is still a great day out for all ages. As well as seeing all the animals we recommend listening to the talks too, although aimed at children they are still educational and a great way to see the... More

Hi Zoe, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The answer is "yes" to both. You can either make a note of your booking reference number or bring in a printed out email. Best wishes, George.
