Wet Weather Days Out in Devon

Lush green branch, wet from rainfall.

When the weather isn’t playing ball, days out with the family and keeping the kids entertained can be a challenge… but a trip to Paignton Zoo will provide enjoyment for everyone AND you won’t have to get soaked through!

So grab your umbrellas, raincoats and wellies and brave any wet weather – we’re open all year round from 10am.

Indoor exhibits

Many of our exhibits are indoors and out of the rain – a few are even very humid to suit the cold-blooded animal residents inside! This includes Tropical Trails, Bugs at Home, Amphibian Ark, the Ape Centre and more.
