Tuesday, 3rd December 2019

Those looking for a Christmas experience they will never forget should look no further than Twycross Zoo, as the Leicestershire-based conservation charity is all set for its most wonderful season yet.

On selected dates from 30th November through to Christmas, visitors of all ages heading to the zoo can enjoy a truly magical experience amongst some of the world’s most endangered species.

To launch the Christmas advent, on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December, the zoo will be hosting its very own Christmas Fayre, where families can enjoy tasty treats and shopping gifts perfect for animal lovers. Then, throughout the rest of the festive season, there are lots of chances to meet the main man and his cheeky elves as they roam the zoo!

Also, to say thank you for the admirable commitments they make all year round, the award-winning zoo is offering FREE entry to all Armed Forces, Emergency Services and NHS staff.

This fantastic 12 days of Christmas offer is available both on the gate and online and is valid from Saturday 30th November through to Wednesday 11th December. Every hero presenting their I.D will be granted free entry to the zoo*.

The zoo has also extended its flash sale meaning visitors can save up to £6 per ticket throughout the whole of December!

Enjoy a wonderful wintery day out and discover over 500 animals from 125 species including snow leopards and penguins. See how Twycross Zoo’s newest arrivals, critically endangered Sumatran tigers Jahly and Sialang, and Eastern black rhino, Nandi, are settling in for their first Christmas at the Midlands zoo.

Explore the immersive habitats of Chimpanzee Eden, Gibbon Forest and the much-loved lorikeet landing, before taking a break in the warm and welcoming Himalaya Centre, featuring a large, soft play area**, Costa and a fully-licensed restaurant.
