It was a fantastic day. The animals are in a very good place and they are very happy in their house in the Paignton zoo!

Love this place!
We always try to visit when we are in Devon.
HUGE, best Zoo we have visited, so many animals and a good long walk round to tire the little ones out!

Bit pricey to get in and slightly confusing with the gift aid thing, but can see where the entrance would go when you consider the size of the zoo and the amount of animals.

Very clean, no litter anywhere and I commented to my hubby that I hadn't seen one wasp buzzing round the numerous bins which you normally get at the theme parks.

We spent a whole day visiting and not sure we saw it all. Bought our tickets online, so didn't. have to queue to get in. Very friendly staff at desk. Despite visiting on one of the hottest days of the year we found lots of shade during our walk around the zoo. Be prepared for lots of walking as it's on a huge site. All the animals looked well cared for with lots of keepers around. A great day out.
