Twycross Zoo, which is set to celebrate its 60th anniversary this year, is home to more than 400 animals from around 80 different species in its animal kingdom. Visitors can come face-to-face with some of the world’s most endangered species – including rhinos, bonobos and the Sumatran tiger – and during their visit learn more about the Zoo’s ongoing conservation efforts to protect and preserve them.

To begin Twycross Zoo’s 60th anniversary celebrations, the Zoo has launched an exciting offer, inviting anybody born in 1963 to enjoy a free day out this month, as part of its ‘Celebrate Our History’ showcase. So those born in 1963 who are also celebrating their 60th birthday this year, can head to the Zoo for a complimentary visit* and enjoy everything the award-winning conservation charity has to offer.

During their visit, guests can learn and discover Twycross Zoo’s history through screenings of exclusive archive footage about the Zoo’s trailblazing founders. Visitors can also share their own memories from the past six decades and add to a memory wall installation in the Zoo’s Himalaya Visitor Centre.
