I didn't even know that there was a zoo in Paignton until I visited the area for the first time. Absolutely excellent with loads of interesting animals to view. I am very concerned about animal welfare and was really pleased to see that the enclosures were big and appropriately set up with all the animals seeming to be happy and well cared for. There were informative boards in each area describing the animal and its conservation status. The only slightly negative comment I would make is that it was a bit difficult to find anywhere to have lunch as the majority of the food outlets were closed. I do appreciate that in the middle of December there are less visitors, but we spent quite some time wandering about trying to find somewhere that was open.
