  • As an avid zoo goer, Newquay Zoo wasn't the best we've been to, but definitely not the worst either (hence the star rating). Very friendly staff, well priced entrance fee. You have to pay to park too, which was a slight disappointment. You can see and visit everything the zoo has to offer in around 3 hours. There's also a great crazy golf course close by.
  • A fantastic little zoo in the heart of Newquay. Despite its small size, the zoo has a wide variety of interesting animals, and the feeding talks are extremely high quality! On our visit we saw a lynx kitten, which was especially adorable. The otters were also cute, especially with their squeaking before they got fed. Overall a fantastic place to visit, and well worth the price. Make sure to go to as many talks as possible!
