Create an itinerary including Welsh Mountain Zoo
With a bend toward conservation, Welsh Mountain Zoo houses many endangered species, such as snow leopards, Sumatran tigers, and Andean condors. A wide range of other mammals, birds, and reptiles also make their home in the park. Explore the Media Centre, which is filled with educational games for children, and watch some of the featured animal shows that are available throughout the day. While the animals live with ample space (15 hectares or 37 acres), the design of the park makes it easy for you to get up close. Its hilltop location makes the surrounding environment part of the experience. Because of the hilly terrain, wheelchair accessibility is limited.

  • A very good zoo to go too, not too big and can easily see everything in 4 hours, you could easily spend all day here. Events on each day showing the animals off. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend coming here instead of the bigger zoos. It has everything. As it's in Wales expect some slopes when walking around.
  • Would highly recommend going to this zoo! The animal enclosures are great, you can see the animals from all angles. We were very impressed with how close we got to the brown bears πŸ˜„ The flower borders are very stunning also, lots of hard work has definitely gone into maintaining the gardens they were beautiful! This is definitely our new favourite zoo 😊
  • Excellent day out for the family. If it is warm some animals may resort to staying indoors, the majority can still be seen but there are a couple that will hide away. Overall great experience and the surrounding beach just down the road was awesome for the kids. πŸ‘πŸΌ
  • Absolutely fantastic day with two small children aged 4 and 1.5 years. So much to see, but you don’t have to walk miles and miles. Animals all looked well cared for, enclosures well maintained and clean. Keepers were friendly and the gardens and planting were stunning. Playgrounds for every aged group. Worth every penny.
  • Lovely zoo with a wonderful selection of wildlife to experience. Staff, when encountered, were very friendly, with one very kindly suggesting a better place to eat lunch away from seagulls! The one thing that made it a bit difficult to get around was the map, as parts of it were quite unclear. Otherwise it was a splendid day out.
