With over two thousand creatures to get close to, indoor and outdoor play areas, the Jungle Express train, keeper talks, animal feeding sessions and six amazing animal habitats, you will want to plan your day to ensure you see all this exciting visitor attraction has to offer.

After you've watched the animals feeding, maybe think about refuelling yourself. There's the Island Restaurant serving hot meals and drinks, plus the Snack Shack serving tasty Cornish pasties and many snack stations dotted around the grounds with ice creams and other tasty treats; and before you go home, be sure to visit the Living World gift shop offering a great selection of gifts and souvenirs.
So, if you are wondering where to go for your family day out - come in but, you'd better leave a whole day, you'll need it!
So much to see, beautifully laid out and loads of interesting information on all the animals.
We've been to Paignton zoo several times and love it each time, especially the gorillas.
The lemur wood is a magical experience
