Get Closer at Cornwall’s Biggest Zoo!

Meet and discover all your animal favourites big and small, including lions, lemurs, otters, penguins, red pandas, lynx, armadillos, meerkats, plus a variety of different bird and reptile species.

As well as a large variety of unusual species, the zoo has a village farm with more familiar faces, plus the Tropical House - an amazing and atmospheric exhibit where you can see sloths, poison dart frogs and loads of beautiful birds from around the world. 

To fuel your adventure, there are food outlets around the zoo to grab some lunch, a drink or a snack. Kids can run wild and let off some steam in our outdoor play areas. Complete with climbing frames, swings and slides, it’ll keep children occupied whilst giving adults a little time to relax. Situated next to the main entrance, the gift shop is stocked full of unique gifts, cuddly toys and branded souvenirs as a memento of your visit.

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. Our past successes include squirrel monkey babies, ring-tailed and crowned lemur babies, lynx kittens and golden bishop chicks. Who knows what babies will arrive this year?

Cornwall Tourism Awards 2014/15 - Wildlife and Marine Attraction of the Year - Silver Award


Newquay Zoo has won big in the prestigious 2020 Loo of the Year Awards.

These national awards celebrate the best public toilets in the United Kingdom and promote high standards. Newquay Zoo was presented with three awards in the leisure category, including Washroom Cleaner of the Year, National Category winner and a Gold for the overall grade of the toilet facilities, which include the Changing Places accessible toilet. In 2019 Newquay Zoo opened a specialist Changing Places toilet facility which can accommodate bigger wheelchairs and provides a bed and the necessary hoists. The move was met with great support from families and visitors to the zoo.

Newquay Zoo is one of the largest not-for-profit charities in Cornwall - with all money made going directly back into the Zoo and its conservation projects. As the Zoo receives no grants or financial aid, your support is paramount to its success.
If you are a UK taxpayer and you make a donation that is 10% more than the admission, the government will give us 25p for every £1 of your entrance fee. It's called a gift aid visit and it makes a massive difference to us and to our vital conservation work.
