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.

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.

Pagoda Interiors

We have been running our family business since 2011 and are located in The Narrows of the historic market town of Totnes, South Devon. Our business ethos is based on selling ethical products; these include fair trade, ethically sourced, recycled, locally made and UK made.  We spend a lot of time undertaking research about the makers and products before we stock them in our shop. We are always on the look out for new and contemporary looking homewares and gifts and by doing this we think that we have established ourselves on the high street as offering that 'something different' to the norm or latest trends. We received a Gold Award for Best Fairtrade Retailer - Multiple Products in the 2017 South West Fair Trade Business Awards.  We have also won Gold in 2015 and Silver in 2016. We are open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm - including Bank Holidays.
