Visitor Update - Half Term

February Half Term is a very busy time for us and we have been welcoming visitors as quickly as possible into the zoo so they can enjoy a great family day out.  As a charity our visitors patience and support is greatly appreciated so we can continue our award winning conservation work.

If you are traveling from the North on the M42, our suggestion is to get off at jct 12 and take the HGV route along the B4116 to Twycross.

To help you make the most of your day we advise:

  • Arrive early (Himalaya inc Costa is open from 9am and the zoo from 10am) or after lunch from 1.30pm
  • Check travel alerts before your journey
  • Prepare for the possibility of a queue as the school holidays are one of our busiest times.
