Exmoor Zoo, Barnstaple
Categories: Zoos & Aquariums, Nature & Parks, Outdoor Activities
Encounter over 200 species of animals, birds, and reptiles at the Exmoor Zoo. Converted from a bird exhibition in 1982, the zoo now spans almost 5 hectares (12 acres) in North Devon. It is home to the Exmoor beast, a black leopard that is one of only two breeding females in the British Isles. Interact with a snake or help feed the wallabees while hearing more about the animals from knowledgeable staff. Check the feeding schedule ahead of time to not miss the chance.

This is a nice quaint zoo for the whole family to enjoy. You can stand in the inclosure with the meerkat's ( they are so cute). There is a wide range of animals. With cafe's and sulveneer shops. Makes a nice morning out.
Animals are upbeat and well cared for. Not too busy and staff offer excellent customer service.
Compact, rural zoo - nothing enormous in terms of animals but some interesting variety, decent space for them to move around in and a good chance to see them very clearly.
Every time we go there's something different we enjoy it we try a go every year brilliant
This is one of the best smaller sized zoo's (compared to woburn/longleat) I have ever been to in the UK. There is a wide variety of animals to see, the enclosures are all very well built (animals have ample room), the zoo is well set out with more enclosures current being built, the feeding/zoo keeper talks were very good,the overall cleanliness was of a high standard and to top it off the staff were all very friendly! All in all, a great day out, and I'd recommend it to anyone!
