Twycross Zoo is one of the country’s major zoos set in 80 acres of Leicestershire countryside. The zoo is located just outside the village of Twycross just off the M1. The zoo is open all year round and has a comprehensive collection of animals. There are over 1,000 animals on show including Bornean orangutans, Asian elephants, inland bearded dragons, northern white-faced owls, boa constrictors and many, many more.

One of the main highlights of the zoo is the Immersion Exhibits. These give the visitors the opportunity to experience different parts of the world and see the animals in their natural habitat.

There are many talks and animal feeding shows available throughout the day and these really should not be missed.
