Go wild!

Four good reasons why you should pay Newquay Zoo a visit this autumn.

Newquay Zoo is a superb day out for all ages, whatever the time of year. It’s home to an incredibly diverse array of creatures great and small, offering visitors a real insight into the animal kingdom, and opening little ones’ eyes to the importance of protecting the natural world.

Discover the world’s rarest species
Located on the north Cornish coast, the zoo is a visitor attraction and conservation charity, one that allows you to get up close to many wonderful endangered species, including lions, lynx, lemurs, otters, red pandas, penguins and many more.

Embrace the outdoors
The autumn season is a beautiful time to get outdoors with the family and admire this stunning 13-acre zoo and the lush gardens within it. This is all while learning about the dozens of exotic animals, many of which are more active during the colder months. Children can also run wild in the two outdoor play areas!

Try and spot the zoo babies
This year has seen something of a baby boom at Newquay Zoo! Throughout 2020, it has welcomed a tapir calf, red panda cub, Owston’s civet kitten, pademelon joey, crowned lemur infant, black necked swan cygnets, and twin armadillos! Many of these youngsters are now out and about and growing in confidence, bringing extra joy to your zoo visit.

Relax and recharge
Finally, after a day spent out in the elements, you can refuel at the Café Lemur or the Lazy Lion Grill outlet, both serving takeaway food and drink – ideal for grabbing a spot of lunch, delicious cake or a hot drink.

Currently all guests, including Annual Pass holders, must pre-book an entry date and time, in advance of their visit. Whilst Newquay Zoo has worked hard to ensure that it is a safe place to visit, please note that some parts may be closed for your safety. To see all current safety measures, visit the website.
