Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, Ilfracombe

3.3
#3 of 7 in Parks in Ilfracombe
At Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, venture back to prehistoric times to see how animals and dinosaurs lived. Set on over 11 hectares (28 acres) of North Devon countryside, the park includes a large zoo of exotic animals and several dinosaur exhibits. Wander the primate area during a feeding, or visit the prehistoric museum to see fossils and learn more about the dinosaurs. As this is an interactive zoo, you can help feed the lions or spend the day swimming with sea lions. Wear walking shoes with good traction, as the park is hilly and can be hard to navigate in the rain.
