Twycross Zoo named as one of the fastest growing Zoo and Wildlife attractions by Visit England

We have fantastic news! After an incredible 12 months we’ve been named in Visit England’s official statistics as one of the fastest growing zoo and wildlife attractions in England, achieving a phenomenal 15% growth in visitor numbers year on year.

All English visitor attractions were asked to take part in Visit England’s annual survey to provide information insight on the sector. The results of the survey were published in September 2019 and can be viewed in full here:

Even though there was a underperformance in zoos and wildlife attractions with a decrease of -2% total, we proved to be head and shoulders above the rest with visitors choosing Twycross Zoo for their day out!

Sharon Redrobe OBE, CEO at Twycross Zoo said “We are thrilled with the results from Visit England which show that Twycross Zoo is placed firmly on the map for visitor growth.

“As a charity, the more we grow the more we can focus on protecting endangered species, saving the natural world and introducing even more of our visitors to wonderful wildlife and the importance of conservation.

“Our hard work and ambitious plans are paying off and we hope that our success continues.”

Home to over 500 animals from over 125 different species including Sumatran Tigers and Eastern Black Rhino, we are the only place in the UK to see all four types of great ape; Chimpanzees, Gorillas, Orangutans and Bonobos.
