Take a walk on the wildside
Paignton Zoo is one of the South West’s most exciting visitor attractions. It’s a place to roam, discover and get in touch with your inner animal.
Get up close to some of the animal wonders of the world across specially designed habitats – from the savannah to the wetlands and the tropical forest. Run wild in the play areas or hop aboard the unique Jungle Express train to get even closer to the action.
The zoo is also a registered charity and part of a worldwide network of zoos which cares for and breeds rare species thanks to guests who help to fund their conservation work.
Come rain or shine, Paignton Zoo is a fun filled day out for all the family, and you’ll need all day to see it all!
