Californian Sealion


Enter the world of the Welsh Mountain Zoo and you enter a world of natural wonder. As one of North Wales' top attractions, 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, lazy day learning about many rare and endangered species from Britain and around the world.

New for 2013: Join us as we celebrate our 50 Anniversary with an Easter Eggstravaganza, a Meet the Lemurs Fundraising Evening, a Mid-summer Celebration with Cava & Strawberries, a Teddy Bear's Picnic and much more! For more details on our 50th Anniversary Events please see:
