About Twycross Zoo

Looking for an attraction packed with family fun, outdoor adventure, really wild discoveries and more? Head to Twycross Zoo for a day of fantastic family fun. Get ready to see some incredible animals up close and explore the fan favourite The Gruffalo Discovery Land, which is located right in the heart of England at Twycross Zoo's main park.

Things To Do

Meet some of the rarest species on the planet! Did you know that Twycross Zoo is the only place in the UK where you can see all four great apes – the closest cousins to the human race? Or let your little monkeys run wild in the indoor soft play or outdoor Wet & Wild splash pad! Not forgetting that you can get up close and personal with some of your favourite animals in immersive habitats – PLUS so much more!

The Gruffalo Discovery Land

Bringing the story of The Gruffalo to life, you can wander through the deep dark wood and encounter all of the much-loved characters in the story - Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and of course, The Gruffalo himself. Inspired by the bestselling children’s book The Gruffalo written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, you’ll follow the story of the small mouse and his giant imagination as he starts his journey interacting with every character along the way. With interactive animatronics, short clips from The Gruffalo film and immersive buttery and goat walk-through enclosures, you’ll be transported to a fun family adventure. You can follow the path into Fox’s Underground House, peak through Owl's Treetop House and sneak into Snake’s Logpile House, before encountering The Gruffalo! With interactive animatronics and short clips from The Gruffalo film, you’ll be transported to a fun family adventure that will capture the interest of the youngest of generations with the world of The Gruffalo.

When your family needs a break, head over to the Oh Crumbs! Café and have a nibble at some Gruffalo treats, browse The Gruffalo Goodies gift shop and meet The Gruffalo at The Gruffalo Glade performance area!

Twycross Zoo Animals

Any animal lovers out there? Discover hundreds of animals from cheeky chimpanzees to giant giraffes, including some of the most endangered on the planet, from sumatran tigers and rhinos to meerkats and more! Not forgetting beautiful tropical birds and insects too - you can even follow the journey of a caterpillar to a chrysalis to butterfly! 

Twycross Zoo is the only place in the UK home to the four great apes – the closest living cousins to the human race! Listen and learn about all the animals at Twycross zoo from their expert rangers. Make sure to ask all of you animal questions at the daily talks dotted around the zoo! 

It's the perfect family day out, especially when there's acres of wildlife to discover!

The Ultimate Animal Experiences

Get up close and personal with some of your favourite animals, with a range of fascinating animal experiences, animal encounters, or tours! It’s also a great chance to meet the knowledgeable keepers and ask those need-to-know questions!

From tigers, meerkats, and giraffe encounters, great ape tours and being a zoo keeper for the day, you are guaranteed to make lifelong memories! You will also be contributing to the zoo's conservation work, saving animals from extinction and helping Twycross Zoo in their mission against extinction. Plus, how cool would it be to meet these amazing animals?!

Food & Drink

Feeling peckish? It's time to feed those grumbly tummies! Head The View Restaurant for a scrumptious meal - from freshly made pizza and pasta to vegetarian foods too!

Maybe the Catch Fish Bar is something up your street? Delicious fish and chips are enough to satisfy those empty tummies!

You'll also find plenty of kiosks around the zoo for refreshments, sweet treats and drinks too!

Twycross Zoo promises a jam packed day filled with lots of fun experiences, gruffalo antics and lots of incredible animals! If you are ready to channel your inner zoo keeper then grab your tickets and prepare to get up close and personal with some of the world's most fascinating animals.
