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.

Fantastic zoo. Great 3 hours out with my family. Different to other zoos we usually visit as the animals are a lot less. This is a fun quick zoo. Don't expect to spend all day here but concentrate on having a great 3 hours. Animals...More

I am an avid cadge spotter and was intrigued when I saw on google that Newquay Zoo had a "Lion Cadge". It did not live up to expectations. Not angry just disappointed.

The zoo actually had more animals/species than I expected. Especially as it had 3 lions. However, their enclosure was the smallest I've ever seen (a general theme) but they probably looked the healthiest out of all the 'exhibits'. The penguins looked totally bored. The otters...More

But very good, nonetheless. Not quite sure how some people managed to get round in an hour - we were there for a good four or five hours or so. It's sometimes worth hanging around to see some amusing behaviour. We arrived to see what...More

Granted this zoo is nothing like longleat, London zoo, etc., but actually it is a really nice little zoo and has plenty of animals in it. Very clean and well maintained. Staff are nice and friendly as well. A nice place to kill 2-3 hours...More

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
