Tropiquaria is in a unique setting on the edges of Exmoor and the Quantocks, close by the sea.
We are small zoo based in and around an old "Art Deco" BBC Radio Transmitter station. This Grade II Listed building houses our Tropical Hall, Nocturnal House and Aquarium. The grounds house our outdoor collection
We are also an animal sanctuary and work closely with the RSPCA and other exotic wildlife organisations, to help rescue and rehome animals.
Situated on the A39 main road between Bridgwater and Minehead, we are easy to find. Follow the signs from the M5 to Butlins, and look out for the giant radio masts, and you cant miss us..

10:30am - 5:00pm
We are open, but we still have financial uncertainty, but hopefully with the help of our wonderful staff, volunteers and supporters around the world, we'll be able to navigate our way safely through this period
