Penguins are very good and the enclosures are lovely.
It was a bit disappointing that the seals glass was not clean and the tunnel bit there were no seals in it. Though the baby seal was adorable.
Aquarium bit is small but still nice to look a round.
Good place to visit we did a zooper ticket with paignton zoo so this made it cheaper. Think I would have been disappointed if had paid full price.

We always enjoy going to Paignton Zoo. Such a wide variety of animals that are so well looked after. Kids play area is always good as well for those rainy days. Some of the habitats are looking over grown, but I am sure the animals love this. Looking forward to seeing the new Lion as he was hiding very well when we went there.

This took us about three hours to walk around and see pretty much all we wanted. This included stops for coffee and snacks. Reasonable price for such a great place.
