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.

Newquay zoo is in need of a refurbishment and a bigger area for the animals. Some enclosures were I bit small, such as the Lion's, fisher cat and the Lynx. The farm was quite poor with mainly goats. Would not visit again.

Firstly, when you pay to go in they ask you if you are likely to visit the zoo again within 7 days and if you say yes they will take your picture so you can return FREE of charge! This is a brilliant idea especially...More

Wide range of animals keeps the children entertained. Worth taking advantage of the seven day return pass including in the ticket price.

Hi Zoe, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The answer is "yes" to both. You can either make a note of your booking reference number or bring in a printed out email. Best wishes, George.

Hello, no I'm afraid dogs are not allowed in the Zoo unless they are working assistance dogs. Newquay Zoo
