What You Say

I fed the lemurs at Newquay Zoo. What a fantastic experience and a great birthday treat for my wife. Newquay is a really lovely zoo and we cannot wait for our next visit.. 
Craig, Swindon
A lovely relaxed place, more intimate than others we have been to which means you can get closer to the animals. We shall certainly visit again - what a wonderful place. 
Catherine, Chester
Very impressed with Newquay Zoo - a very enjoyable day out for our entire family, including our 90 year old grandfather who said it was the best Zoo he has ever been to. Thanks for a wonderful time.
