  • Arrived at 10 am on a beautiful sunny summers day with wife and grandson. Had to leave at 3.30m to pick up our son but had such a great day, we just didn't want to leave. Our grandson (just turned 1 year old) loved all the animals especially the gorillas.... had a meal in the fish bar but looking at the weather, we should have joined the hoards making use of the weather and had a picnic outside on the many grassed areas. Can't wait to bring our grandson in a years time when he'll be a year older and appreciate the animals even more.
  • Great zoo investing in new areas including recently opened Gibbon Forest expanding specialist ape status. Plenty of other big mammals too. Soft play area for children also.
  • Lovely place. Very clean and well kept. Many different types of animals. Easy viewing. Very busy since we went two days in the school holidays. So full of screaming children scaring the animals away at some areas. Please parents control them better. And if they are too young to behave don't take them until they learn to respect others and nature. OK rant over. Enjoy your time here, we did.
  • Twycross zoo is by far one of the best zoo's myself and my family have been to. My favourite has got to be the elephants and the giraffes. All the animals seemed really happy in their enclosures and it was lovely to see that they had plenty of room to run about and play. I would 100% recommend this zoo to anyone.
  • Great zoo with a wide selection of species. Very knowledgeable keepers with free talks throughout the day. Recommend the lemurs talk as it is the best way to get a good look at the beautiful ring tails.
