Our View

Experience the world's wildlife at award-winning Newquay Zoo. Set within exotic lakeside gardens and with over 130 species, Newquay Zoo is one of Cornwall's most popular attractions. The Madagascar Walkthrough features crowned lemurs, vasa parrots, striped mongoose and more. Gaze across the African savanna from the viewing platform and see animals of the African plains graze and wander as they would in the wild. Animal feeds and informative talks run throughout the day. Kids can also enjoy the Tarzan Trail and Dragon Maze. Other highlights include the Tropical house, Oriental Garden, Penguin pool, Village Farm and lots more animals.
