Set in over 28 acres of spectacular, sub tropical gardens within the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park has been giving great enjoyment to its customers for 31 years.

The Park is an independently family run business that relies solely on the income from its customers to look after its animals, maintain the beauty of the park and make improvements every year. 

Our aim is to give our customers a wonderful experience, surrounded by natural beauty, incredible animals, dinosaurs and lots of fun and enjoyment.
The park has a genuine passion for encouraging respect for the natural world.  As well as lions, wolves, sea lions, primates, meerkats, penguins and more, we are well known for our impressive life sized animatronic dinosaurs!

With a daily schedule of Free Shows, talks, encounters and a number of ‘Animal Experiences’ to enjoy, we encourage close interaction with our knowledgeable keepers and some truly magnificent animals.

In addition, we offer an exhilarating Dino Express Train Ride, a Dinosaur Museum with small cinema, Critter Cavern, a Tropical House, the Tomb of the Pharaohs and a Gigantic Indoor Soft Play Area for Dinomite fun, whatever the weather!

We look forward to seeing you!

Our Dino Express train ride

Inspired by an attraction in one of the theme parks in America, this great ride resembles a gigantic Earthquake! Scream as seven and a half thousand (yes! 7,500) gallons of water hurtle towards you and your fellow passengers!

There is a small charge for the Dino Express Train ride at £1 per person. Please be aware that this is a water based amusement feature and that you may get a little wet!

Dinosaurs


We love dinosaurs, from our original installation of the largest most lifelike animatronic T Rex , spitting Dilophosaurus and our Megalosaurs. We have now extended our animatronics down to the domain of the dinosaurs and throughout the valley. 

The domain of the Dinosaurs was revamped this year with the addition of six new exhibits, within the domain, this further extends our animatronic dinosaurs throughout the valley.

You never know what’s lurking in the bushes.

Small raptors are back and more.

Not to mention our recently on TV our old Triceratops that has become a home for a local colony of bats so his refurbishment is on hold until they move onto a winter roost.

Thanks to Family Day Trippers UK on YouTube, were glad you had a great day out and love the video.
