Free Entry To Café And Tradewinds Gift Shop At Any Time

With lots of things to do above and below decks, you're in for a real voyage of discovery at Living Coasts, Torquay’s Coastal Zoo and Aquarium, in Devon. 

We’re an all weather attraction, with our famous penguin beach, stunning seals and beautiful bird species outside and a magical sea life aquarium and viewing tanks inside.

After taking in educational talks from our keepers and presenters and watching penguins enjoy their food, it’s your turn to refuel. So why not stop to take in the stunning views from the terrace Café..

Visit The Café With Stunning Sea Views

The Living Coasts Café is open to non-paying visitors at all times and has the best views across Torbay, so don’t miss out. If you’re looking for things to do in Torquay, come in any time to admire the view. Whether you want morning coffee, afternoon tea or a hearty lunch, we’re happy to welcome you. The café serves delicious locally sourced and palm oil free food and drink 364 days a year from 10.00am.

What You Say
Great place to walk around, we loved the penguins and the fact that they can walk around amongst you! 
I would recommend this attraction to families visiting the area, and to top it off the Ultimate Hot Chocolate in the cafe upstairs is worth the visit itself!!! 
If you like penguins – don't miss Living Coasts!
