Twycross Zoo also calls itself “The World Primate Centre, which should give you a very good idea what they are specialised in. We visited them during the summer holidays as part of an offer of the Leicestershire County, which combined a hotel stay and admission to 3 out of 5 participating local...

ProEductional treat

Conswasps

I remember well, as a child, that wonderful moment when the car rounded the corner of what seemed an endless country lane and at last I could see in the distance the outline of the elephant house and if I was really lucky, a real live elephant. I remember the excitement that I felt as we drove...

ProLots of lovely animals

ConsNot a very big zoo

Well actually he's not. He's taking himself and a friend to Measham car sales and Twycross Zoo just happens to be very close by so he thought he would kill two birds with one stone (I'm sure killing things and zoo's shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath now I come to think) and drop me and...

Living in Leicestershire now and only having been with my boyfriend two months, our first Valentine’s Day together was hopefully going to be a special one. So when he asked me how I wanted to spend our special day together, he was only mildly amused when I suggested a day out at Twycross Zoo! He...

ProHave some of the bigger animals, loads of monkeys

ConsYou might want to take a monkey home with you.

We visited Twycross Zoo at the end of the summer holidays (me, hubby, sons aged 1 and 3). Having been slightly disappointed with my visit to Bristol Zoo I wasn't hopeful that this zoo would be any better. Where is it? ---------------- As the name suggests it is in the town of Twycross in...

ProEducational, value for money, well maintained

ConsExposed to the weather, a lot of walking - no set ...

I've been to Twycross Zoo roughly 4 times in the last 5 years and have been most impressed with it every time I've been. The great thing about this place is that it's open 364 days a year, with only Christmas day out of bounds to the public. Despite its rural location, it is only four miles from...

ProLots of monkeys, playground for children, price

ConsGravel on paths hard for pushchairs

The day started the same as every other day out in our house... in absolute choas! Getting ourselves and our two boys ready (5-years-old and 22 months old) can be a bit mad at times. Eventually we were ready and off we went to Twycross Zoo. The zoo is approximately 91 miles from our house and...

ProSo many animals

ConsSo little time

Have you ever got into the car with no idea where you are going or what you will find when you get there....no, well it must just be me then.

ProSpacious and happy animals

ConsFood a little pricey?!

I was recently given two free children’s passes for Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire – well it all helps to fill those weekends! Pre-trip I’d never been to Twycross before, and thought I’d check their website before we went to get a feel for the place… The site is pretty well written, with many...

Twycross zoo is easily found a few miles off junction 11 on the M42. Its main focus is on primates and if monkeys are your thing then this is great.
