Twycross Zoo

Twycross Zoo is renowned as a specialist primate zoo and has a wide variety of monkeys and apes including the UK's only group of bonobos.

We have breeding groups of many endangered primate species so we often have babies and toddlers playing around in our orang utan and bonobo groups, and in many of our monkey groups.

Set in more than 80-acres, we have around 650 animals of almost 150 species to see, including many endangered animals and native species in the Zoo's Nature Reserve.

You can walk with our ring-tailed lemurs in their new walk-through enclosure; see our giant tortoises sunbathing in their new grass area and watch our penguins take their daily walk.

Our keepers present regular talks and feeds where you can learn a bit more about some of our animals such as the chimpanzees, penguins and coatis.

We are open 364 days a year from 10.00am (we only close Christmas Day)

The Zoo is located only four-miles from junction 11 of the M42/A42 (which links the M1 and M6) making it readily accessible from anywhere in central England.

We offer free parking.
