Exciting keeper talks as well as activity trails, face painting, children’s play area and Dragon maze offer plenty to keep people of all abilities and ages occupied.
Visit the Café Lemur for a varied menu and delicious food, the majority of which is locally sourced, in a unique setting overlooking lemur island. On selected days throughout the year the barbeque will be open, serving amazing barbeque favourites. The Café is also a brilliant place for a tasty homemade cake, with relaxed sofa areas to enjoy your treat. As one of Cornwall’s biggest charities we receive no additional government funding and rely on the support of our visitors in order to finance conservation projects – both at home and abroad. We are proud of our success with conservation breeding programmes and recent successes include squirrel monkey babies, ring-tailed and crowned lemur babies, lynx kittens, Sulawesi crested black macaques and golden bishop chicks. Who knows what babies will arrive this year?

Please contact Newquay Tourist Information Centre on 01637 854020 for more information and to book. The Zoo is based in a 10 acre natural Environmental Park and is around 80% wheelchair and pushchair friendly. The terrain is mainly level and a majority of the paths are tarmac with a concrete floor in the village farm. Please note there are doors to our Tropical House which have to be kept closed due to free flying birds. Both doors do open though to give enough room for wheelchair users. Areas which currently do not have ramps or access for wheelchair uses are: The Hospital does not have a ramped entrance at present. The upstairs viewing gallery in the Tropical House is not accessible to wheelchair users but 80% of the animals can be viewed from ground level. The Owl enclosures are not accessible by wheelchairs due to a large railway sleeper staircase which has been put in place due to the steep incline. The Oriental Garden has been refurbished and now includes a wheelchair viewing platform so you can see across the Otter enclosure and into the new Hornbill Aviary. There is plenty of seating throughout the zoo.

Festive Weekend at Newquay Zoo
Christmas is coming early to Newquay Zoo! This year on the 7th and 8th December the Zoo is hosting its Festive Weekend, a whole weekend dedicated to the wonder and magic of the Christmas spirit.
Stewart Muir, Zoo Director said; ‘‘We LOVE Christmas at Newquay Zoo, and are looking forward to welcoming Santa and his trusty team of elves to the Zoo.”
For a small additional donation children can visit Santa in his grotto and receive a special present. You can also learn about animal enrichment and help our keepers give the animals their Christmas gifts at the daily talks and feeds.
