The Tamar Valley is renowned for its natural beauty, its industrial heritage, and its excellence in market gardening – producing fine fruit and veg to be enjoyed in homes and restaurants across the land. But it comes as a surprise to many – even our locals – to hear that the village of Gunnislake was once home to a small but popular zoo, which could be found on the very site where today sits the Tamar Valley Garden Nursery.

If you have your own memories of Gunnislake Zoo, we’d love to hear from you!
