Best Wildlife, Animal Parks and Zoos in Devon | Devon's Top Attractions

Take a trip to one of the many wildlife and animal parks Devon has to offer for a fun and educational day out with our furry, slippery, hairy and hoofed friends. You’ll get the chance to get hands-on with our county’s fascinating wildlife – and some from more exotic climates too in one of the local Zoos!

Many of the zoos in Devon – as well as the aquariums will have sections given over to local wildlife, so you might get to delight in the antics of otters, horse around with donkeys, or giggle as sheep are made into showmen.
