Following the announcement by the Government on February 22nd about the roadmap for easing COVID restrictions, we are pleased that we now have a re-opening date that we can work towards. The roadmap states that we will be able to reopen the zoo no earlier than 12th April. We are very much looking forward to welcoming everyone back to the zoo to enjoy our open spaces. We have been working hard while we’ve been closed to make the experience a great and safe one for when you return.


We are currently working on our re-opening plans, so ask people to please bear with us while we do this. Please do not call the zoo, but keep an eye on our social media page or here for updates. We would like to thank you everyone again for all the kind support while we have been closed. 

We're closed for now...

Newquay Zoo is currently closed to all guests from 5th January 2021 until further notice. This is part of the Government's national lockdown measures for England to help control the spread of coronavirus. Please see below for any questions you may have.


I have booked tickets to visit the zoo during the time you will be closed. What do I do? 
If you have an existing booking to visit the zoo then a member of our Guest Experience team will contact you over the coming days via email or phone. Please be patient with us whilst we aim to contact everyone.

I am an Annual Pass Holder, what will happen to my pass?
All Annual Passes will be extended for the length of time the zoo is closed. Passes will extend automatically from the date that we are able to safely re-open; you do not need to do anything!

Can I still book tickets to visit Newquay Zoo? 
We can’t wait to welcome you back as soon as the zoo re-opens, however due to the nature of the situation tickets are not currently available to pre-book. Please check back for future updates and keep an eye on our social media pages too.

Will the animals be looked after?
Please be assured that as before, our amazing animal care teams will continue to look after all our animals.
