The Welsh Mountain Zoo is set in North Wales, high above Colwyn Bay with panoramic views and breathtaking scenery; its beautiful gardens are home to this caring conservation zoo. Roam the wooded pathways, relax on the grassy slopes and spend a lovely day learning about many rare and endangered species from Britain and around the world including Snow Leopards, Chimpanzees, Red Pandas and Sumatran Tigers!

Enjoy our Penguin Parade, Chimp Encounter, Bear Falls, Lemur Lookout, Condor Haven and the Children's Farm plus much more. Visit 'Sea Lions Rock' and watch our Californian Sea Lions being trained. Enjoy the exciting and extensive Jungle Adventureland and Tarzan Trail Adventure Playground. For the more technically inclined, visit our Media Centre, where you can do a virtual tour of the Zoo and play some great educational games.
