Shaldon Zoo is very small but a very rewarding place to visit. The collection is quite small - mostly monkeys, lemurs, sloths and the like - but these are all housed in very spacious enclosures so that you really get to see the animals behaving...More

Nice small zoo to visit with young children. Came to see Father Christmas. Good grotto but FC needed wig glue! Lots of questions needed to be answered! Kids were able to do craft which made it worth the money.
