Living Coasts Zoos
Take a fantastic journey around the coastlines of the world without leaving Torquay! Welcome to Living Coasts, Paignton Zoo's new visitor attraction in Torquay.
Living Coasts is a unique, world class aquatic visitor attraction, focusing on the conservation of coastal and marine life around the globe. It has been developed by Paignton Zoo, with financial support from the South West Regional Development Agency and the European Regional Development fund.
Living Coasts features a range of fascinating coastal creatures from loud and loveable penguins to playful fur seals, colourful puffins to sea ducks - they're all at home in this amazing new environment.
There are reconstructed beaches, cliff-faces and an estuary. A huge meshed aviary allows the birds to fly free over your head, while special acrylic tunnels give stunning crystal clear views of the birds and seals underwater.
Then relax in the water-side cafe with its stunning views across Tor Bay, where you can enjoy morning coffee, lunch or a real Devon cream tea - all with the best view in South Devon. Living Coasts also has a well-stocked shop in the style of a colonial harbour, with gifts and souvenirs for everyone.
