Welsh Mountain Zoo, Colwyn Bay

3.7
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 visit to Welsh Mountain Zoo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Colwyn Bay vacation trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Entrance price half that of Chester zoo.......for a reason. A decent range of animals but in general the enclosures are far too small, a bit cruel really! Food was very average and whole place could do with updating and an injection of funding. The kids play areas are large, reasonably well equipped. The whole park needs improved paths as it's quite muddy
  • Great location and good selection of wildlife. Penguin cafe is in a beautiful location looking out onto the hills and Harry, and also overlooks a couple of enclosures. Variety of free animal shows throughout the day. Enclosures on the small side.
  • Nice enough place and animals seem healthy but needs better signs and more money throwing into it. Lovely setting for a walk round though
  • Brilliant, love the animals and great play area. Wonderful location on a hill top over looking the sea
  • Stunning location. Reasonable prices. Can get quite close to the animals.
