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.

There was lots of birds! Birds everywhere. In addition to countless birds, there were lions, monkeys, penguins and countless others. It's not as big or comprehensive as others zoos I've been to but there's a good atmosphere here and I enjoyed my afternoon here. The...More

We managed to spend a couple of hours here at an enjoyable pace, but unless you're moving around with very small children I'd imagine it would be hard to stretch this out through a day. All the staff and keepers around were very friendly and...More

Excellent day out with the family with lots of animals and feeding time with talks about the particular animal. Only down side is paying a high price for parking and a family ticket for the zoo is expensive but worth it.

Staff very friendly but do not think it is good value at £40.00 for 2 adults and 1 4year old, also some of the animal enclosures looked a little shabby

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
