Paignton Zoo is currently closed following the advice and guidelines from the Government regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.

This means that our Brick Safari Nights events will be postponed until further notice. Guests who have already bought tickets for these evenings will be fully refunded. Please continue to check back on this page for the latest updates when we know more.

Thank you for your understanding at this time.


For 5 months from Saturday 28th March, Paignton Zoo will be home to The Great Big Brick Safari. Over 80 wild animal models made from thousands of LEGO® bricks will form a trail around our grounds and exhibits... but it’s not just for children!
For all the big kids out there, we’re offering you the exclusive opportunity to visit after-hours with a series of unique evenings.

Our Brick Safari Nights will provide the perfect, relaxed setting to see some of our animals and explore the brick sculptures in a whole new light. Explore the zoo to discover the amazing models - come face to face with all your favourites from life-sized lions and gorillas to beautiful butterflies and macaws. Plus, enjoy tasty food, refreshing drinks and a chilled atmosphere. More information about the exhibition can be found here.
These evenings are strictly for over 18’s only. Annual Pass cards are not valid for entry to these exclusive Brick Safari Nights.
