Newquay Zoo is an amazing place to meet loads of weird and wonderful animal species, in fact, it's the only place in Cornwall to have lions. The zoo also have beautiful songbirds, slithery snakes, scaly skinks, marvelous meerkats and tropical toucans to name but a few. Recently the Penguins have been given their own bubble machine to play with!

A year long events programme has something for everyone, with brand new events added alongside all the firm favourites. You can also make the most of your visit to the Zoo with a totally free upgrade of your ticket, which allows you to visit for 7 days for the price of one!
As well as a large variety of unusual species. The Tropical House is an amazing and atmospheric exhibit where you can see skinks, poison dart frogs and loads of beautiful birds from around the world.
