Go wild at Newquay Zoo

Award winning Newquay Zoo takes you on a journey that allows you to get close to over 1,000 of the world's rarest and most endangered animals. Be amazed by the penguins playing in their pool, visit the creepiest crawlies in their atmospheric tropical house and marvel at the big cats eating their lunch - an unforgettable visit for the whole family.

Newquay Zoo is home to an amazing array of animals, set in 13 acres of beautiful sub-tropical gardens, it is an oasis that allows visitors to release their inner animal and have fun! From the amazing savannahs of Africa to the rainforests of South America, there is lots to discover and enjoy.

Look out for beautiful red pandas, meerkats on sentry duty and otters playing in the stream. As well as a large variety of unusual species, Newquay Zoo has a village farm with more familiar faces that children will love.

The tropical house is home to lots of exotic species, an exhibit that lets you experience life down on the rainforest floor and up in the canopy, can you spot the sloths! Also don't forget to take a walk through the award winning Gems of the Jungle, a free flying bird exhibit where guests can immerse themselves in the Southeast Asian jungle. 

Newquay Zoo is home to some of the world's most critically endangered species including the beautiful red pandas, Owston’s civets and the Sulawesi crested black macaques.

Keeper talks and animal feeds occur throughout the day, but if you want to get even closer, our animal experiences give you the chance to meet and feed our cheeky lemurs, friendly penguins, cute red pandas and even the African lions. If that isn’t enough, we have activity trails, a children’s play area and the tarzan trail to keep people of all abilities and ages occupied.

You will need to keep your energy up too, so why not grab a snack from Lemur Café, Lazy Lion Grill or a delicious ice cream from Top Ices. 

Just a short walk from Newquay town centre, Newquay Zoo is one of Cornwall’s most exciting visitor attractions.
