      Hi Tracey, by co-incidence we were at Twycross Zoo over the bank holiday weekend and had a great time too! I kept a look out for the silver back great apes and wasn’t disappointed particularly the little one playing with a ball:)

    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.
