We’re offering a special entry price to all visitors who join in the fun and arrive dressed in black and white – like our gorgeous little penguins.

To claim your discounted entry you will need to show the admissions staff your penguin attire when you arrive, who will then discount your standard entry price.

Discounted admission only available for tickets purchased at the gate on the day.

DISCOUNTED RATES = £11 per Adult (normally £18.95) and £8 per Child (normally £13.95). Standard admission applies in all other cases.

If you’re not coming dressed in black and white you may want to book your tickets online now as these events have been popular in the past, so we recommend booking your tickets soon to avoid disappointment in advance – book today: Book Tickets at Twycross Zoo


*PLEASE NOTE: Pop Badges are becoming very popular and we recommend you arrive early  to get yours, as they available whilst stocks last.
