I first visited Twycross in 2016 after it being highly recommended to me by a Safari Park featured in my Top 100 Attractions in Northwest England book and it has to be said Twycross Zoo really isn't just your average run of the mill zoo. Yes it's true, they do have animals from all over the world, but what I realised after my visit was that Twycross don't just take, they give back and in a huge way. As I Made my way around the zoo it really did hit me why exactly Twycross is famous for its huge conservation programme and the animals don't just look super healthy, they look very comfortable within their surroundings, which is not something you see in a every zoo within the British Isles. I found the entrance fee to be adequately priced and the facilities were of the highest standards, giving huge value for money. All in all I really did enjoy myself here and to be honest, I really cannot wait to return.
