Paignton Zoo Environmental Park

The natural world is truly extraordinary. Visit Paignton Zoo Environmental Park and you’ll be amazed by the sheer variety of plants and animals.

Paignton Zoo is home to some of the planet’s rarest and most amazing creatures. Discover all your favourites, like gorillas and orang utans, elephants and giraffes, lions, tigers and rhinos. And be ready for a few surprises along the way, too. Do you know what a bongo is, have you ever seen a red river hog? And don’t forget the plants – there are hundreds of rare, special and beautiful specimens around the site.

A must-see at the Zoo is Crocodile Swamp. Here, amid the lush tropical foliage and steamy atmosphere, you’ll come face-to-face with Cuban, Nile and saltwater crocodiles plus large snakes, turtles and fish – enter if you dare!

Paignton Zoo is a registered charity, so not only do you get a good day out, you know your hard-earned money is going to a good cause, supporting education, scientific research and practical conservation both at home and abroad.

Paignton Zoo has plenty to keep everyone going all day – as well as the amazing wildlife there’s food, shopping, indoor and outdoor play areas, a miniature train, a free bird show and the hands-on interactive Discovery Centre.
