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.

Reasonably priced couple of hours out. Spent 2-3 hours here and was able to do all the animals except the farm area. Highlight was the lions although not sure their enclosure is big enough for three.

Zoo was very small and We didn't managed to actually see some of the animals however the week long ticket is a nice idea. I understand being in the middle of town it would only be a small zoo however was slightly disappointed

Lots to see for both children and adults - could be better organised with staff as only one guy (Alex) doing all talks even though he was fantastic, very informative and enthusiastic about all animals! Not a massive zoo but we managed to spend all...More

Hi, me and a few friends are hoping to visit, will it be worth it as we only have babies, (all under 3 months, so obviously will not appreciate it), is it mainly aimed at all children or will we enjoy it anyway? Thanks in advance
