Paignton Zoo is one of Britain’s top zoos. It's home to some of the planet’s rarest and most amazing creatures. Discover all your favourites, like gorillas and orang utans, giraffes, lions, tigers and rhinos, and be ready for a few surprises along the way, too. Do you know what a bongo is? Have you ever seen a red river hog? And don’t forget the plants – there are hundreds of rare, special and beautiful specimens around the site.

A must-see is Crocodile Swamp. Here, amid the lush tropical foliage and steamy atmosphere, you’ll come face-to-face with huge crocodiles plus large snakes, turtles and fish – enter if you dare! Then there’s Amphibian Ark, the Avian Breeding Centre and Monkey Heights.

Paignton Zoo is a registered charity, so not only do you get a good day out, you know your money is going to a good cause, supporting education, scientific research and practical conservation both at home and abroad.

Paignton Zoo has plenty to keep everyone going all day – as well as the amazing wildlife there’s food, shopping, indoor and outdoor play areas, a miniature train, a free bird show and the hands-on interactive Discovery Centre.

Last entry is currently at 3.30pm, however closing times do vary so follow the website link above to confirm or call Paignton Zoo on 01803 697500
