Things to do in Torquay – Paignton Zoo

23 July 2021

If you’re going to make a list of things to do in Torquay while you stay at the TLH Leisure Resort, be sure to have a few pages handy as there’s lots to do, come rain or shine. Not technically in Torquay, Paignton Zoo Environmental Park is within a 15 minute drive of the TLH Hotels.

With dozens of different animals across 80 acres of beautiful, spacious grounds – you are in for a really wild time at Paignton Zoo! Located in South Devon, Paignton Zoo is one of the South West’s most exciting visitor attractions and zoos. Come rain or shine, the zoo is a fun-filled day out for the whole family.

Discover all your favourite species, big and small, including gorillas, orang-utans, giraffes, lions, tigers, crocodiles, flamingos, red pandas and rhinos, and be ready for a few surprises along the way too.

Explore the Zoo

Why not see exactly what is here before you visit by using the online map. Plan your day and make sure you see every inch of the park.

Conservation and Education

As well as being a leading visitor attraction, they’re also a conservation and education charity. This means they’re in a unique position to teach people about the natural world, wildlife and conservation, making us an ideal destination for an educational school trip!
