Christmas at Twycross Zoo

Get Closer to the Magic this Christmas at Twycross Zoo!

We are against the 2-minute Santa visit! Join us for lots of opportunities to meet and see Santa throughout your trip to the zoo!

Meet Santa on his magical sleigh in the Plaza, listen to him read a story in Santa’s Storytime, spot him chatting to William the Donkey, a very special Christmas donkey who is on a quest to become a reindeer, plus lots more! You’re bound to spot him visiting our other animals across the zoo too!

Christmas at Twycross Zoo is especially suited for children with additional needs. The zoo is quieter than shopping centres and other attractions and the relaxed environment for meeting Santa enables a more inclusive experience. Twycross Zoo is set across fairly flat land with no steep inclines and our enclosures have both indoor and outdoor viewing to cater for all types of weather.

Dates: Saturday 2nd, Sunday 3rd, Friday 8th, Saturday 9th, Sunday 10th, Saturday 16th, Sunday 17th, Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th, Thursday 21st, Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd, Sunday 24th December 2017

New for 2017 - Santa's Key Tree

This year we have Santa’s very special Key Tree with magic keys that help Santa deliver your presents safely.

Whether you have a chimney or not, all children upon arrival will be given a special key that they can write their name on and hang up on Santa’s Key Tree. On Christmas Eve Santa will collect the keys ready to deliver all of his presents.

From 7pm on Christmas Eve we will be filming Santa collecting the magical keys for his Christmas journey. Tune in on Facebook with the whole family to watch it LIVE.
