I went to Living Coast for the third time last week while on holiday in Torquay. Really upset that there was no sign of the baby seal. There were a couple of photos of the pup but would have liked to have seen it in the flesh.

This was such a great experience. I can honestly say it is one of the best zoos that I have visited. Each of the animals has highly enriched environments to live in, birds roaming free, amazing and comical talks from the keepers, not to mention a truly wonderful wealth of information and interactions available. This zoo is teamed up with... More

We visited here whilst on holiday. It was ok, but overpriced and not much happening. Would not bother visiting here again if we go to Torquay.

Very cool little place for a visit. Little expensive entry fee but I understand they need to feed all the animals so worth it.

I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours here, taking many photos of the penguins & seals. You don't have to be a kid to enjoy coming here. I hated to leave & will definitely make a point to come back here if I come back to this area.

Living Coasts is very easy to find and reach, it is close to the harbour and sea front. We arrived early afternoon and were told that we were just in time for feeding times at the outside beach areas so were advised to make our way there first. The trainers and keepers arrived and gave talks and information at each... More

What a lovely day, great animals, staff and food plus a baby seal! The loos were clean and not smelly and the inside parts were cool even on a hot day, lots of activities to do for toddlers too, you must go

Kids just love going there. Especially to see the feeding times. Great views from here as well of Torbay. Just don't expect your visit to last more than two hours. Otter feeding was great.

As I love penguins was really excited to visit and was the first place we went on arrival to Torquay, especially as on route from hotel ( The Imperial Hotel) down to the harbour. The price on entry seemed ok £11-12 each adult which including a donation and gift aid was good. The place itself appeared well kept and got... More
