We have been twice, once with our 9 month old and recently with our now 2.5 year old & 11 month old. Great day out, all reasonably priced, lovely cafe & restaurant- affordable. Definitely recommend :)

We have been to Paignton zoo a few times now and have really enjoyed our visits.It is a reasonable price to get in and is a popular place with visitors/tourists.

The park is lovely large and spread out which makes the enclosures quite big for the animals. They have got loads of animals, we especially love Duchess the elephant as we adopted her for our Dad's Birthday a few years ago which he loved. There are keepers talks that are very informative during different times of the day.

There are plenty of picnic benches dotted around to enjoy a family picnic or a cafe etc to purchase food from.

We would definetly visit again if in the area!
