Directions to Isle of Wight Zoo

The Isle of Wight Zoo is a family-run zoo with a special interest in tigers and lemurs. The zoo was built within the ruins of a Victorian Fort built to guard Sandown's coast, which means we face one of the Isle of Wight's nicest beaches. Once upon a time the zoo owners used to walk tiger cubs on the beach, and we're still famous locally for it. Nowadays we focus on looking after older tigers and giving them a happy retirement.


Our zoo has a variety of animals, but we specialise in two particular areas - tigers and lemurs. Our animals also include jaguars, African lions, monkeys and an 'Zoo at Home' section. Come along and see what else you will find!

Our keepers have their own specific sections, which allows them to et to know the personalities of the animals in their care very well. Why not explore the Isle of Wight zoo website and find out which our of animals are the headstrong type, which are the softies and which like to keep the keepers on their toes?


Conservation is a major aspect of the zoo's mission. We want to do everything we can to protect the animals we love in their natural environment, and safeguard the future of each species.

We contribute to conservation in a number of different ways. We take part in the European Breeding Programmes for several species of animals, particularly in our primate section. We also have strategies in place to make education about the natural world as accessible as possible, with the hope of inspiring the next generation of conservationists.

We also contribute funds to in situ conservation work, directly helping wild animals. We contribute to two main projects, each reflecting the specialisms of our zoo.
