“A Great day out, despite what other reviews say, read on”

Written on: 14/09/2011

If you do your research you will find that Twycross is known for its work with primates and conservation of a few very rare species. So don't be surprised if you see a lot of Apes/Monkeys/Gorillas and other assorted primates, They are all great to see and many are fun to watch, our grandchildren were kept fasinated for ages. Also dont be surprised to see some very rare creatures such as Amur Leopards(probably the most beautiful of all the large cats and only 30 - 40 left in the wild) the two… Read Full Review

“The Last time I visited Twycross Zoo was back in 2004,...”

Written on: 03/05/2011 by JJIVES73 (1 review written)

The Last time I visited Twycross Zoo was back in 2004, After our visit yesterday I think I can honestly say I don't mind leaving it another 8 years before I go again.

(1) I found the Zoo to be very dirty, I didn't see and designated Smoking areas for smokers and as a result the grassed areas where covered in Fag butts, not ideal for picnicking DISGUSTING!!.

(2) There didn't seem to be enough hand washing facilities dotted about, I know there where toilets in areas but in 2 that we visited… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2010

It cost £35 for 3 of us to get in... Fair enough. We got in and saw some monkeys, then some monkeys, then some more monkeys. Walked round the corner saw more monkeys and a pigeon.. But that flew off. More monkeys round the next corner then a camel and some monkeys. Think you know where I'm going here.

No tigers, leopards, lions, rhinos, tropical fish ... Very very disappinted. The place is very poorly sign posted to where things are, but I've just realised that's because there is… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/09/2010

I found this review very helpful because...it is absolutely correct. The monkeys were great, and I enjoyed looking at the chimps inside..and the babies. But, no atmosphere, no signs, and not the animals I expected. A zoo without a lion isnt a proper zoo. However, all the animals we saw were very healthy so that was good. Next time we visit a zoo it will be worth the extra hour and a half travel time to go to Colchester.

“Visited Twycross Zoo on the 27 June 2009.”

Written on: 27/06/2009 by Reapes (6 reviews written)

Visited Twycross Zoo on the 27 June 2009.

Paid £11 an adult x2 to get in (with gift aid donation of £1). and £7 for a child. Overall, expensive, not many animals other than monkeys, a lot of enclosures are either empty or badly designed so you cannot get near to them (reindeer case in point). Food prices are extortionate, more than motorway service stations (and that's saying something). The animal petting area was virtually void of animals.

TBH you are better off going to Ash End Farm for a… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/06/2008 by MazY (1 review written)

I'm writing as a photographer first and foremost, so much of what I write must be related to that fact.

Parking was a pleasure and there was plenty of space, with attendants guiding us to the available spots. Many of the animals are behind glass and so if its a sunny day, as it was when I went, taking photos is not going to be without problems.

While there were some creatures behind chain-link fencing, which you can stick your lens through to get 'that shot', there were some birds that were… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/01/2008 by willtheman45 (20 reviews written)

Well I can safely say Twycross Zoo is one of my favourite zoos now. Its not huge but its a good size which is good because all the big attractions are in a reasonable distance. There were lots of monkeys some of which I had never heard of in good ecnlosures with lots of play things. Loved the elephants who were in a simply excellent enclosure as well as the selaions-some of the features in their enclosure were fantastic! I also liked the leopards-beautiful and in a cracking enclosure. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2008 by Barryt (14 reviews written)

Well worth a visit for the Primates alone. Improving all the time and easy to visit if you are disabled. As with most Wildlife Parks the Staff are very enthusiastic and helpful. Reasonably good for photography. Very good variety of animals of many species, new Bird and Borneo walkways add a much-needed change to the old Zoo format. New Elephant enclosure is superb, two houses now for mature and young Gorillas; Amur Leopard enclosure superb. Twycross suffers from the 'fund raising restaurant'… Read Full Review
