“Agreat family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

You can spend the whole day in the zoo, Children of all ages love it.
It is good to see animals having space to roam about., when I was young they were cruelly kept in concrete floored cages in some zoos.
The only criticism from my grandaughter was that there were not enough crocodiles.

“paignton zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Excellent zoo. Well laid out to maintain interest. Great selection of animals in good enclosures. Be aware that access to the car park is step for those who have mobility issues although you can use the drop off and collect point. This is a full day attraction

“great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Wonderful zoo , reasonably priced with plenty to do. All in all a quality experience. Only sad element was the poor elephant who apparently has just lost soul mate - overall though an enjoyable visit.
