Twycross Zoo does not allow dogs on Zoo property, this includes all car parking areas. We cannot allow your dog into the Zoo because some of the Zoo's animals will be upset by the sight of a dog and your dog may be upset by our animals. Guide and Assistance dogs are allowed into the Zoo but are unable to go into several areas for the above reasons. For further information on this please see the link on the left of this page.
