A really exciting thing to do in Cornwall is to visit the amazing Newquay Zoo, just a short walk from Newquay town centre. All the family will enjoy getting close to 130 amazing species and over 1,000 of the world’s rarest and endangered animals!
The zoo is located on the north coast of Cornwall, surrounded by 13 acres of lush tropical gardens and it is a place where you can run wild, explore and release your inner animal.
Enjoy the gardens filled with beautiful plants from around the world, with the World War Zoo Memorial Garden and the Oriental Garden, as well as lots of native wildflowers and plants. Explore the Madagascan Walkthrough, the Cornish Dragon Maze made out of hedges, the Village Farm, Toad Hall and lots more.
Watch the lions devour their lunch and then adventure into the Tropical House where you can meet some of the more unusual residents including a sloth! If that isn’t enough, there are fun activity trails, lots of face painting, a great children’s play area, as well as the Tarzan trail and the African Savannah! Everyone loves feeding times and the interesting talk to listen to.
Animal Experiences at Newquay Zoo allow you to go behind the scenes with the keeping team and get even closer to the animals! Choose from being a Junior Zoo Keeper, a Zoo Keeper for the Day or experience Lemur Island or Penguin Encounter. It will certainly be an experience to remember, but you will also be contributing to vital conservation work, both at Newquay Zoo and in projects around the world.
There are lots of picnic places and seating areas throughout the zoo. When little legs get tired, check into Cafe Lemur for a homemade meal or treat, or chose an ice-cream at the kiosk. Newquay Zoo is one of Cornwall’s leading visitor attractions and as a not for profit charity, your visit will support the vital conservation projects. Look out for great seasonal events for families, which are held throughout the year.
