Living Coasts


Overview

Welcome to Living Coasts, an all weather attraction, located on Torquay seafront in South Devon, where there’s plenty to see and do: mingle with the playful penguins, get up close to the otters, octopus and seals, and much more. Visit Penguin Beach to walk with the African and macaroni penguins and catch our entertaining feeding time talks.

Below the decks the fun doesn’t stop. With more fascinating habitats and creatures, there are games, activities and panoramic underwater viewing areas for our stunning species..

Open to all, our Living Coasts Café is free entry to non-visitors too, so come in anytime for family friendly, local food and drink with panoramic sea views overlooking the Bay.

Grab some feel good shopping at Tradewinds Gift Shop anytime without visiting the zoo. It’s packed with wonderful products to suit all ages, from plush toys and games to books, clothing and confectionary. There’s also a huge range of Fair Trade jewellery and local art. All profits go towards our conservation work.
