Due to the latest Government guidelines, from Monday 14th September we are unable to permit any groups of guests with more than six people into the zoo.
Please do not book tickets for a group larger than six people, unless your single household family 'bubble' has more than six people in it.


Timed entry

We are limiting the number of guests per day, including Annual Pass holders and anyone who has a complimentary ticket. Entry is permitted in half-hour slots throughout the day (this refers to your arrival time, not the length of your visit).

If you are buying new tickets or are an Annual Pass holder, you can pre-book your day tickets/time slot online here. You can currently book to visit us up to the end of November 2020.

If you have a Childminder Pass, complimentary ticket or an existing pre-paid ticket, please call 01803 697500 to book your time slot.


Gift Aid

Paignton Zoo is a conservation and education charity. 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.

Admission prices (with donation) for 2020

Adult £20.45*
Child (3 - 15 years) £15.30*
Child under 3 years FREE
Senior citizen (65+)/Student** £17.35*
Saver (2 Adults & 2 Children) £64.35*

*If you do not wish to pay the donation price, the admission prices will be: Adult (16+)- £18.55, Child - £13.90, Senior Citizen (65+) & Student - £15.75 and Saver - £58.50.

**Student tickets are not able to be purchased online as a valid student ID, with an expiry date, must be shown at time of purchase.


These prices will also be the same for those guests with a disabillity. If you provide a form of ID in the form of a blue badge, PIP or DLA letter, then you will be permitted one carer entry free of charge with your ticket.
