You can easily reach Welsh Mountain Zoo by train. The nearest station to the Welsh Mountain Zoo is Colwyn Bay, which is served by Transport for Wales services throughout the day. From the train station, it's about a 30-minute walk to the zoo.

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 the many rare and endangered species from Britain and around the world.
