Opening Times: 10am - 6pm

Terms and Conditions

Corona Virus Update

The safety and wellbeing of our animals, staff and visitors are paramount and in extreme circumstances such as a global pandemic we reserve the right to close certain areas of the zoo or the whole zoo itself.

Purchasing tickets

Tickets are valid only for the date booked. Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.

Where you have selected a specific date to visit the Zoo when purchasing your ticket and we are subsequently unable to accommodate you on that date for any reason other than your failure to comply with these Terms, we will use reasonable endeavours to agree an alternative date with you.

(a)      where the Service’s correct price is less than the price stated on our Site, we will charge the lower amount; and

(b)      if the Service’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Site, we will contact you by email to the email address provided at the time of placing your order as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Service at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process within a reasonable period of time, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you by email.


If we are in a position such as a global pandemic (e.g. Corona Virus) then it is at the discretion of the zoo to defer any experiences and Birthday parties to be rearranged for a later date.  If you have an experience booked then please contact us via email and we will endeavour to respond as soon as we can to book in another date with you to be used prior to 31st December 2020.  All of our experiences are limited and therefore are subject to availability.

In the event that we have to reschedule any Encounter Day to a different date and you are unable to attend the rescheduled date we reserve the right to cancel your booking.

Twycross Zoo reserves the right to withdraw, change or cancel these terms and conditions at any time.
