As members of Chester Zoo, we are allowed an annual visit to other zoos, including Paignton. Chester Zoo is fabulous and we go almost every week, so we did wonder if a visit to Paignton would disappoint – it certainly did not!

Anyone that knows Chester Zoo well will know that Lemur Island has only recently been deforested enough for visitors to spot the lemurs and I for one have been delighted with the glimpses we now have of them. Paignton however was a whole new ball game – these cheeky little chaps are happy to get close to you (although there are two keepers on hand to ensure they don’t get touched or stressed – the lemurs, not the public!).

Overall the zoo is quite small in comparison to Chester, but has some lovely nature trails with free flying birds. The gardens are beautiful too – lots of woodland planting.

A lemur experience at Chester was on my bucket list, but now I’ve been to Paignton I can happily cross it off!
