Twycross Zoo

For me Twycross Zoo conjures back PG Tips adverts from the ’70′s and whilst the zoo has now undoubtedly moved forward in animal conservation & welfare, the images remain if only on You Tube.

PG removal men, Mr Shifter & son with the piano on the stairs, (‘Dad, do you know that piano’s on my foot?’ ‘You hum it son, I’ll play it!’).  I also have it on good authority that one of the old chimp advert stars remains at Twycross Zoo too, (sadly Louis died July 2013 but 42 year old Choppers is going strong) .

 

Free Parking & Sat Nav details for Twycross Zoo

No parking charges in place for this popular visitor attraction.

For Sat Nav purposes, you can use the postcode CV9 3PX.

Whilst the attraction remains in Leicestershire, the Warwickshire postcode is correct but don’t ask me why!

    my husband and i would like to visit twycross zoo. we are in hucknall in nottingham . is there a bud service to get there at all ?

    • The only information I can see on the Twycross zoo website regarding buses is that there is a bus that goes from Ashby de la Zouch to Nuneaton that stops by Twycross Zoo. Whilst I don’t think this will be of much use to you in Hucknall, perhaps your best option is to contact your local bus service provider directly for further information.
