Accessibility

Newquay Zoo is a leading family visitor attraction in Cornwall and part of the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust, committed to 'Access for All'.

We believe that by creating an environment free from barriers and obstacles we can ensure our facilities, services and the environment are fully accessible to all. We want everyone to enjoy their visit to the Zoo and endeavour to make everything accessible, visible and easy.

Newquay Zoo is a beautiful and picturesque zoo built into 13 acres of sub-tropical gardens, and is considered reasonably wheelchair and pushchair friendly. Gradients are less than one in twelve however some appear fairly steep, therefore not all paths are easy to manage independently in a manual wheelchair.

There are a number of seating areas around the Zoo. Disabled toilets are situated next to the children's play area and also near the main entrance. There are also baby changing facilities in these areas. There are disabled car parking spaces in the Council owned car park adjacent to the Zoo (please note that seasonal charges apply).

We welcome fully trained assistance dogs at the Zoo when accompanied and under the control of their owners. Please ensure that these animals wear their identifying jackets and that their Environmental Health and identification cards are available if required.

We offer a reduced admission price for disabled visitors and their carers.

Please note: Newquay Zoo does not have any wheelchairs for hire, however Newquay Tourist Information Centre has both wheelchairs and electric scooters available. Please contact Newquay Tourist Information Centre on 01637 854020 for more information and to book.

Really lovely zoo, especially the lion enclosure. Our children got so excited about feeding the meerkats and penguins, a great idea for small children.
