Schools out, the children are excited and Twycross Zoo is on hand to entertain with half price entry!

Twycross Zoo knows that at this time of the year children are full of excitement and festive energy and that is why the Leicestershire based zoo is now offering half price entry to all visitors on Wednesday 20 December, Thursday 21 December and Friday 22 December.

Twycross Zoo is inviting families to get closer to the magic and make the run up to the big day even more special by spending a day with Santa, his elf and over 500 animals in an 88 acre environment, perfect to run off that extra Christmas excitement.

This year, Santa is taking time out of his busy schedule to visit the zoo, so visitors can spend time with him throughout their visit. From a magical photo opportunity on Santa’s sleigh to interactive activities, where children can listen to him read a story or feed the penguins, there are so many opportunities to capture that special moment this Yuletide.

Visitors can also watch festive films in the Study Centre, and take part in arts and craft sessions and most importantly keep up their energy levels by stopping at the zoo’s Himalaya restaurant, which on Fridays will be open to visitors until 9pm, and will be seasonally decorated and serving festive foods.

Twycross Zoo is open to the public from 10.00 to 17.00 daily, 364 days a year and is only closed on Christmas Day.
