Paignton Zoo was founded by Herbert Whitley and opened to the public in 1923. From the earliest times education, conservation and botanical themes were important. Today you can see more animals then any other zoo in the South West, over two thousand creatures.
You can meet all of yours favourites:
giraffes, lions, gorillas, cheetahs, crocodiles, colourful snakes , amazing monkeys.
Spend a whole day in the zoo and enjoy an amazing day out with your family.
There are also Botanical gardens
Plants are fundamental to the atmosphere and this is one of the reasons that Paignton Zoo is also botanical garden. The botanical garden consists of both mature shrubberies and new areas.
There is also a Kids' Zone – full of things to do for your children.
