Newquay Zoo
From its humble origins as a small pets corner in the early sixties, Newquay Zoo, opened in 1969, has become one of the country's top zoos, with ground breaking and innovative conservation programmes. Winning 11 major awards since 1996, as well as passing the South West Tourism Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance assessment, it has proved itself to be one of the best attractions in the South West.

The zoo was privately owned from 1994 to August 2003 by Mike Thomas and Roger Martin. During this time they developed the zoo into one of the best in the country. The highlight for Mike Thomas was seeing the revolutionary partnership with St. Austell College established and the development of an educational facility on land adjacent to the zoo, catering for BTEC and HND studies. In August 2003 Newquay Zoo joined forces with Paignton Zoo and is now part of the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust family, comprising Paignton Zoo, Living Coasts, Slapton Ley and Two urban nature reserves. Stewart Muir the new manager said “I am delighted to be appointed as the new manager at Newquay Zoo as it is a beautiful site.

The Zoo is a well respected tourist attraction in Cornwall and I want to take it into an international arena in wildlife conservation” Specialising in breeding many endangered species, Newquay Zoo is at the forefront of conservation, education and entertainment. Leading the way in exciting innovative enclosure design, enrichment and free ranging animals. From tiny tots to old age pensioners the zoo has something to offer for all the family. It's a day out to savour, a day out with a difference, a day out to remember so why not pay us a visit and see for yourself, we know you will be delighted.

We are open every day, except for Christmas Day, from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm.
