Paignton Zoo


Overview

With over 2,000 animals across 80 acres – you’re in for a really wild time at Paignton Zoo.

Located in Devon, 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 our specially designed habitats – from the savannah to the wetlands and the tropical forest. Run wild in our play areas or hop aboard our unique Jungle Express train to get even closer to the action.
We’re also registered charity and part of a worldwide network of zoos which cares for and breeds rare species thanks to visitors who help fund the 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.
