I read with trepidation the recent reviews saying how run down the Zoo is but the visit today completely contradicted this. Well kept grounds and enclosures and picnic areas with well organised parking.

However there are numerous enclosures without animals however the big hitters Apes, Giraffe, Rino etc are there.

I think that at £15 entry the price is about right taking into account the animals, Gruffalo Experience and Wet and Wild.

Twycross should be more open about the quantity of exhibits that are not open.

Reviewers also need to be more accurate and objective their criticisms otherwise Trip Advisor becomes a useless forum for keyboard warriors to be spiteful and vindictive!

Visited today. The children loved the gruffalo part and the splash park great fun !
The enclosures are very disappointing it seems they have spent money on some things but not the animals. Zebras giraffe and rhino I thought were not well kept, quite sad to see such empty enclosures nothing for them in there.
Expensive for what we did. I did however choose not to see the rest of the animals due to the experience of seeing those animals.

Went here with our family and friends, which consisted 4 adults and 3 kids under 2. The whole experience was draining and disappointing throughout the whole day. As you walk in, you get a flavour of what’s about to come. Run down and dirty toilets, soft play right as you walk in (which always tempts the kids) and a Costa for some reason (how about having your own cafe with profits going to the zoo, not Costa?).

So next we walk through the ticket booths and into the actual zoo. Half of the exhibits right as you walk in were seemingly closed or “under repair”, the rest were in need of a good lick of paint at the very least and major repairs at worst. This was to be the theme walking around, as we encountered dead ends that shouldn’t be as doors were closed with no signs. This is very annoying when you have a double pram which is difficult to manoeuvre. There were also more empty exhibits (maybe the animals were asleep? But it didn’t look like it).

Next we come to dinner time, which is the thing which really put a dampener on the day. We strolled from one end of the zoo to the other to go to the restaurant. Which turned out to be closed. We asked a member of staff where else we could eat. There was a cafe (with hot food we were told), fish and chips and a bbq. As we had little ones that need seats to eat, we chose the cafe. Upon arriving we just about got seated and managed to find two high chairs. Which there wasn’t many of, which seemed very bad considering the cafe is located in the Gruffalo area where there will be a concentration of kids. There was also only one baby change with a massive queue. I’ve not even gotten onto the food yet and we were annoyed. So we go get food, looking into the fridges, there was one sandwich left at 12:30 plus a few kids sandwiches. I grab a £3 cheese sandwich for my daughter, a sausage roll for me and my wife and a doughnut. Plus some drinks which totals near £20. You expect a mark up when you go to places like this, but these prices were insane, especially for the quality of the products which was very low. We would have left the cafe, but we needed to feed our baby daughter which we need a high chair for. So in the end, we end up feeding the kids and then walking to the bbq to get us an overpriced cheese burger that was very poor quality again. Again, you expect things to be more expensive, but they just seemed extortionate for what we got. And certainly it seems none of this money was going to the zoo or the animals.

The best thing about the whole day was the splash zone and the parks. Which we could have gotten for £5 at our local park. So we are down roughly £120 after the tickets and food and feel we didn’t have the best day. If you are travelling to a zoo then I say pick Chester or Yorkshire wildlife park if you are north of Birmingham. They are both much better, better value for money, more animals and things are much nicer. We won’t be returning to Twycross Zoo anytime soon.

Long walk from car park to zoo, poorly signed and a dust bath on warm days.Zoo seems very understocked with animals. Gruffalo exhibit very disappointing, 2 of the animations didnt work so the story was lost. Gruffalo gift shop has ridiculous prices for character plush
toys. If your going just for Gruffalo , dont bother, save your money and watch the whole story on youtube instead.
Food is crazy prices, go to McDonalds up the road instead for value for money.
Dont bother with the photo package at £20 as we didnt see a photographer in 5 hours, besides it's not explained very well anywhere either. We wont be bothering again. TZ dont bother leaving a comment telling us to speak with guest services about our visit, we did on the day and got no apology then !

Very well organised and laid out well enabling engagement especially for children from toddlers upwards. Staff very helpful and accessible and good food options throughout.

As always the meerkats and penguins were a delight, especially the meerkat kittens. Many of the animals seemed to have been in hiding sadly with some enclosures empty. There just doesn't seem to be as many animals as there once were but the conservation information and details on which animals are endangered is informative and very worrying. We particularly liked the information showing that homo sapiens are the most dangerous animals on the planet.
Now for the areas of improvement opportunities. The toilets in the entrance area by the soft play area are in need of a deep clean, new toilet seats (many are brown, chipped and extremely nasty looking) and doors and touch points need a thorough clean. The walls need a fresh lick of paint and the soap needs to be refilled regularly.
Refreshments are limited with not much provision for food allergies such as gluten intolerance, vegan food or more healthy options. Car parking is well managed. Staff all seemed very friendly but the whole place looks shabby and in need of some love and attention

Parking easy, entrance quick, all Apes were amazing and active and vocal, very clean. Giraffes and rhino amazing, saw 1 tiger and 1 leopard. Some animals not signposted in their pens. Babies thriving was good to see. Some animals could not be seen such as the Bush dogs and Tapir. Lemur walk was dusappointing as they were with the keeper and not roaming round. Lorikeet landing was fabulous, they came on our hands and fed. You can see that the money is spent on the welfare and enclisures of the apes and bigger mammals which is good to see. No reptile house. Giant tortoise were amazing. Meerkats fab. Improved areas mixed with dated areas, if you visit it will help support the refurb and welfare. Good value ticket price £15pp online.

Absolute waste of money. Paid £60 to get in (for 2 adults and a child) to find empty pens, what animals you do find are in overgrown poorly maintained cages, the Rhinos are just on a concrete slab! There was no restaurant/food available, we came years ago and enjoyed our visit but now the Zoo is run down and poorly managed. Complained to the disinterested staff on the customer service desk to be told that all they could off was a free ticket! Why would I want a free ticket to a run down Zoo with no animals?! They were unapologetic about the lack of food blaming an external company.

Such a shame to say this but honestly save your money it’s really not worth it.

We are a family of five with three children aged 12, 9 and 6. We’ve visited out more local zoos number of times so wanted to try somewhere new. Parking was fine and the entry into the zoo quick. We booked online which made the tickets £15, luckily the children have Blue Peter Badges, so they had free entry. (Top tip - get your kids a badge by sending in some art work)
I would have been massively disappointed if we had of paid full entry price.

The gruffalo trail was nice.
Generally the zoo was fine. Understandably many of the animals were difficult to see, I get this with zoos they clearly cants guarantee it. Yet their was soooooo much walking and dead space in between attractions. It was basically an expensive walk.
I wish zoos would try and put some more trails or facts or small play areas as you go round. It just makes the kids incredibly bored.

Their was a massive queue for fish and chips, the Costa was massively inflated. The burgers and hot dogs were £6.75. Hugely expensive.

We ended up leaving earlier than expected and went to the Mac Donald’s five minutes down the road. So either take a picnic or do the same if you are on a budget.

Overall disappointing and we wouldn’t recommend or go again.
