Ongoing updates and improvements


Paignton Zoo is an education and conservation charity and by visiting us you are making a contribution towards the care of our animals and our vital work for wildlife across the world.

Visitors are strongly advised to book online to guarantee great savings and date.

Members are advised to book online during peak times.

Please make sure you book the right date, time, number of guests and check the weather before you book as bookings are both non-refundable and non-transferable.

If you are a UK taxpayer and you make a donation that is 10% more than the admission, the government will give us 25p for every £1 of your entrance fee. It’s called a Gift Aid visit and it makes a massive difference to us and to our vital conservation work and work for wildlife.
