Disabled Facilities

Cafés, toilets and most animal houses are accessible by wheelchair. Assistance dogs are permitted at the zoo, although there is no access to the apes and elephants. There is no disabled access to the inside of the lemur house.

Mobility Scooters

Mobility scooters are available for hire at £12.00 (to be booked in advance) from Guest Services. Identification should be produced on arrival.


There are several toilet blocks within the zoo including disabled toilets and baby changing facilities. Do visit the Himalaya bathrooms to see the sub beetle exhibit (we are currently waiting on our new leaf-cutter ant colony).

Wear your Wellies!

Twycross Zoo is an outdoor attraction so we recommend visitors dress appropriately. In cold or wet weather a hat, scarf, waterproof jacket and wellies will ensure you can enjoy a fun filled day out at the Zoo.

Car Parking

There is a section of the car park near the zoo which is reserved for visitors with blue badges. Parking is free for all visitors and is normally within the zoo, so your vehicle is accessible at all times.
