Paignton Zoo is one of Britain’s top zoos, home to some of the planet’s rarest and most amazing creatures. Discover all your favourites, including 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 coati is? Have you ever seen a capybara? And don’t forget the plants – there are hundreds of rare 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, the Jungle Express train ride and a free bird show.
