"Best Zoo I've ever been to!…"
What puts Paignton head and shoulders above other zoos is the incredible landscaping. The whole zoo is in mature woodland with trees, bushes, grass and flowers looking like a giant woodland glade. Against this backdrop, the animals are shown at their finest and they all look comfortable and well cared for.
Other plus points: The sheer range of animals is excellent: camels, giraffes, elephants, owls, pelicans, orangutans- you name it, they've got it.
The zoo is user friendly with smooth pathways everywhere- great for prams and wheelchairs.
In every respect the zoo is outstanding and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Allow about five hours!Read moreLess
"My 9 year old daughter and 2 year old son…"
My 9 year old daughter and 2 year old son both really enjoyed their day as there is something for all ages. Whilst we took a picnic the food outlets seemed busy. The Animals looked well cared for and it was lovely that there were areas that the children could actually touch some animals. My son was very taken with a small goat! Friendly staff and some reasonably priced items (and some expensive) in the giftshop. Would visit again.Read moreLess

We had a great day out here. All the staff were very friendly and there was a huge variety of animals that all looked very well cared for. My daughter loved the little train that takes you round the zoo, and the animal petting ranch where she got to stroke some goats. There is also an indoor soft play centre which is good if you get an unexpected shower (Like we did) All in all it was gret day out.Read moreLess

Great, even when raining! Feeding of the elephants was the best but we were probably biased as we had adopted an elephant (a wedding present from a friend!)Read moreLess
