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.

Decided to visit while we were stopping in Newquay. Exceeded our expectations from when we rocked up. Took around 2h20m to walk around and see everything and reasonably priced.

This zoo was poor there was not a lot there. The only thing what was good is the animal feeding and especially feeding the meerkats as get to help out with them. The zoo is over priced. Colchester is a better zoo by far.

Not the best zoo I have been to...the cages are quite small and not very well kept...it all needs updating. Even the animals look miserable!

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
