Twycross Zoo; Free Entry for Blue Peter Badgeholders
It can be worth the children applying for a Blue Peter Badge to secure FREE entry to Twycross Zoo. This offer is only available to children, (6 to 15 years), that hold a valid Blue Peter badge & badge card when accompanied by a full paying adult. Great to see that at this setting if an adult is accompanied by 2 children, both gain free entry if they have the necessary documentation!
Twycross Zoo & Voluntary Donations
Worth noting that Twycross Zoo will add a small donation towards conservation work unless you opt out. Simply deselect the donation box when booking online or ask for your donation to be omitted when paying at the gate. What I would say is, consider carefully what you want to do as this donation does go towards vital conservation work, but ultimately the choice is yours to make.
Twycross Zoo; One Off Promotions
From time to time, Twycross Zoo will run a specific one off promotion that offers discounted entry on select days. Previously we’ve seen promotions such as ‘Free Entry For Red Heads’ & we’ll bring you more details if any further offers become available during the year.
Top tip; extend you stay with a Stay Play Explore break that includes family entry to Twycross Zoo, National Space Centre, Conkers or more.
Twycross Zoo; Senior Deals
Previously, Twycross Zoo have run a number of seniors promotions for people over 60 years. We’ll bring you more details if these senior promotions run again but remember proof of age will be required.
Twycross Zoo; Free Parking
