Wear your Wellies!
Twycross Zoo is an outdoor attraction so we recommend visitors dress appropriately. In light of recent weather a hat, scalf, waterproof jacket and wellies will ensure you can enjoy a fun filled day out at the Zoo.

Parking is free and is normally within the zoo, so your vehicle is accessible at all times.
