Seaside Attraction

Cheeky penguins play on Penguin Beach, stunning seals bask on the rocks and cute otters entertain in our outside exhibits. During your day out you’ll learn all about our species and their habitats with talks from our expert keepers.

This unique winding, purpose built, multi-level site takes you on a journey alongside the panoramic views of Tor Bay. Perfect for a dry or rainy day, Living Coasts houses hundreds of animal and plants for you to see and learn about.

Our Aviary

Our aviary houses over 300 beautiful birds swooping alongside the sea scapes of their natural habitats. You’ll see waders, guillemots, tufted puffins and Inca terns. The area of the aviary net is 5,500 square metres (59,000 square feet) and encloses a volume of 50,000 m³.


Below deck, in the magical aquarium, you’ll see some amazing marine creatures.

Our underground viewing windows allow you to see the penguins dive and glide, as well as auk feet paddling furiously beneath the water as they play in their wave machine. The pools are up to 3m deep which allows natural diving behaviours in the fresh sea water from Tor Bay.
