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.

To ensure that you are able to visit Paignton Zoo on your preferred date and time, we suggest booking your tickets in advance. Members may check in using Gate 5.

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.
