From our iconic train to our nature trail - there is loads to see and do at Paignton Zoo.
indoor and outdoor play areas
If you’re feeling energetic there are both indoor and outdoor play areas where you can swing, slide and climb! Close by you’ll find picnic areas, snack shacks and our beautiful Island Restaurant to keep you refreshed throughout the day with delicious food and drinks.
Our Sunshine Garden is an exclusive play area for children under 5 which provides fun for hours with activities and games including a climbing wall, big blocks or even flag painting, all in a bright and colourful area.
jungle express train
Our Jungle Express train is a perfect chance to rest your feet. Get exclusive peeps into the tiger and lion enclosures and ride past our gorilla island; see the gibbons swinging in the trees, the flamingos bathing in the pond and the beautiful birds of Brook Side Aviary. Weather permitting the train will run daily from Easter to October and there is a small charge.
Explore even further and you’ll find yourself in the tranquil woodland of our Clennon Gorge Nature Trail. The trail begins near Lemur Wood and is the perfect chance to spot some incredible wildlife. The route is fairly easy and takes around 10 minutes. (Not suitable for wheelchairs)
