Twycross Zoo – World Primate Centre!

Come face-to-face with over 900 animals of more than 150 species, including some of the most endangered on our planet, at Twycross Zoo!

Set in more than 80 acres, immerse yourself in some of the Zoo's fascinating exhibits including: the Borneo Longhouse, where a pathway winds through a sequence of exotic bird and animal exhibits surrounded by landscaped aquatic gardens and Uda Walawe, a Sri Lankan themed elephant walkway which gives stunning, uninterrupted views of four females Asian elephants. Last year saw the unveiling of Bush Dog and Coati Island, new Owl Aviaries and Penguin Lagoon, whilst 2013 welcomes an Amur leopard exhibit, a lemur walk-through, a giant tortoise outdoor walk-about, and SO much more! The Zoo also features its own Nature Reserve, providing a unique haven for visitors to soak up the great British wildlife our country has been blessed with!

The world-class Himalaya Centre delivers fantastic food in a 300 seat all-day restaurant overlooking a Himalayan themed snow leopard enclosure; fabulous shopping, unrivalled conference facilities in Windows on the Wild and fine art in Twycross Gallery, bringing a host of fun and entertainment under one roof.

Open 364 days a year from 10.00am – 5.30pm (4.30pm in winter) and offering free parking; on top of daily animal talks, outdoor play areas, and gardens, Twycross Zoo boasts an action-packed calendar of events, providing everything for a wholesome, family-friendly day out!
