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 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 Bar?

So, if you are wondering where to go for your family day out - come along. We look forward to meeting you. You can buy tickets now.

The Terrace Bar Café is open to non-paying visitors at all times and has the best views across Tor Bay, 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.
