GloWild – our biggest ever festive event!
Ongoing updates and improvements

Your visit to Paignton Zoo starts right here!

We’re an education and conservation charity, and by visiting us you’re helping to save endangered animals both in the UK and across the globe. Our mission is to conserve species and their habitats, and to inspire everyone to help in the fight to protect wildlife.

With over 2,000 different animals set in naturalistic indoor and outdoor exhibits, plus adventure play areas and a peaceful nature trail, there’s plenty for all ages to discover and explore.

We recommend at least 3 to 4 hours for a visit to Paignton Zoo, but it would be best to leave a full day to explore everything that we have to offer.
