Wildly Romantic Dates At Twycross Zoo

Ah the dating game! Impress your date and make a lasting impression with incredible experiences at Twycross Zoo.

Whether it’s a first date, anniversary, proposal or just something special, dates don’t have to be the bog-standard dinner and a movie! (Netflix and chill!)

Doing something that they will remember doesn’t have to cost the earth. Here we have 3 ways Twycross Zoo can help that road of romance, from the free, to the extravagant.

1 – Visit Himalaya and see the Snow Leopards for FREE

Our beautiful family of Snow leopards (including two adorable cubs) can be observed from the comfort of Himalaya, which is set before the entrance to the zoo and is free to enter. Be informal and grab a Costa and a cake, or if you want a little more we also serve food, from burgers and chips to a delectable three course dinner. Our restaurant is licenced too, so why not pop the cork on a bottle of wine to share.

Himalaya is open until 9pm on Fridays and 6pm on all other days.

2 – Feed your favourite Animal

Make your date one to remember with a unique animal encounter. It’s the perfect way to get up, close and personal with your favourite animals and make memories you will both treasure.

Choose from penguins, giraffes, otters and meerkats.

3 – Snow Leopard Experience with Champagne Lunch

New to Twycross Zoo, meet our Snow leopards face-to-face – it’s even more amazing than it sounds!

A perfect date for two, enjoy admission tickets to Twycross Zoo, a 3 course lunch with a glass of champagne in The View Restaurant, followed by an encounter with our beautiful Snow leopards.
