taking advantage of the Indian summer we headed to Twycross zoo this morning, we arrived at 10 am and were directed to a parking spot with just a short walk to the enterance.
Today there were some stalls set up a small farmers market with local chese, meat, and pies etc
the enterance takes you into a large space with a gift shop and a food hall with lots of seats that look out onto the snow leapod enclosure, although we havent spotted them on any of our recent visits to the cafe.
the cafe tends to close fairly early so if you are coming just for a bite to eat, come before 3pm.
enterance to the zoo through the ticket booths was £30 for me my husband and toddler, and you could spend a lot more time at the zoo than we did.
twycross zoo is the home to the pgtips monkeys and so there are many different monkeys at the zoo, from tiny to giant!
we made our way around the bird section, seeing penguins though the water was green, flamingos, herons and many others, then we saw the elephants and girraffes before letting our daughter play on a small train on some open grass, which she enjoyed a lot
we then took a ride through the aviery on the small kiddie train which was good fun and had a ride on a wagon and horse merrygoround, we then had a small pizza at the Ant cafe, which was okay, and seemed to be handmade, a little greasy as cheddar not mozzerella but tasty all the same £2.99 and a coffee for my hubby.
we had a look round the farm animals and saw the meercats, and their tiny babies standing to attention.
there is much more to see, we were on limited time, but would recommend on a sunny day for families of all ages. take a pinic theres plenty of places to stop :)
