Events & News

A venue that is uniquely wild!

Our Events Team can organise anything for you from a professional conference to a birthday party, from a glorious wedding ceremony (and reception!) to a corporate knees-up.

Whichever event you are planning, there is no more unique or accommodating venue than Dartmoor Zoo. Set in 33 acres of beautiful Dartmoor woodland, the zoo is blessed with a selection of distinctive indoor and outdoor spaces that we can transform to fit your wishes perfectly.

Dartmoor Zoo is a conservation and education charity. By holding your wedding, conference, or birthday party here, you are helping to fund our important work in animal and biophilia research, thank you!

And your event helps us too!

Upcoming Events

Boo is Back: Boo at the Zoo 2019

Boo is back and it’s scarier than ever. No tricks, we’re treating you to Boo at the Zoo 2019 for one night only.

Twilight Terror
From 4pm-9pm we’re letting all the monsters roam the zoo, from gruesome monsters to werewolves, prepare for a fright fest. With a spooky light trail, you’ll find eyes watching you from every corner. Our woodland maze will leave you questioning if you really took the right turn.
Our dark room will keep you on your nerve, with feelers that’ll make you jump, you better keep on your toes and senses to make it out!
Suitable for the whole family, after all the tricks we’ve played on you, you’ll be able to settle for some treats: We’ll be serving bug cakes and jelly shots so it’s not all a fright.
