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.

We found the zoo really expensive for what it is but our 4yo enjoyed it. A little shabby but ok. Play area was more popular with our lad than the animals!

Currently on holiday in Cornwall and decided to give the zoo a go. As a family we have visited many zoos before and it is usually a hit with us. As we pulled up outside the zoo today my first impression was it looked 'depressing'....More

Ourselves and our friends were in the area on holiday at the same time, so decided on a visit to Newquay Zoo with their children. We really enjoyed our half day at the zoo. The entry price was perfectly reasonable, and the animals were great....More

Just been to the zoo and had fun. It costs about £15 each which isn't cheap but you can go as many times as you want within a week. Our favourite animals were the penguins who seem to play to the crowd and the meerkats....More

Yes I found we saw more animals in Dec than we did in the summer .there was less foliage ( and visitors) so the animals could be seen better.

Absolutely, Newquay Zoo is still a great day out for all ages. As well as seeing all the animals we recommend listening to the talks too, although aimed at children they are still educational and a great way to see the... 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.
