About Twycross Zoo
Come face-to-face with over 900 animals of more than 150 species, including some of the most endangered on our planet, at Twycross Zoo!
Set in more than 80-acres, immerse yourself in some of the Zoo?s fascinating exhibits including: the Borneo Longhouse, where a pathway winds through a sequence of exotic bird and animal exhibits surrounded by landscaped aquatic gardens, a Himalayan-themed snow leopard enclosure, and Uda Walawe, a Sri Lankan themed elephant walkway which gives stunning, uninterrupted views of four females Asian elephants. Last year saw the unveiling of Bush Dog and Coati Island, new Owl Aviaries and Penguin Lagoon, whilst 2013 welcomed an Amur leopard exhibit, a lemur walk-through, an outdoor walk-about for our giant Aldabra tortoises, Monkeys in Trees with emperor tamarins exploring the treetops above your head, and SO much more! The Zoo also features its own Nature Reserve, providing a unique haven for visitors to soak up the great British wildlife our country has been blessed with!
The world-class Himalaya Centre delivers fantastic food in a 300 seat all-day restaurant overlooking a Himalayan themed snow leopard enclosure; fabulous shopping, unrivalled conference facilities in Windows on the Wild and fine art in Twycross Gallery, bringing a host of fun and entertainment under one roof.
