The Gruffalo Discovery Land
New for 2022, is The Gruffalo Discovery Land, a four-acre land that brings together the much-loved characters from The Gruffalo. This new area of the zoo was inspired by the bestselling children’s book The Gruffalo written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, and the zoos own conservation organisation that exists to protect wildlife, preserve endangered species and educate the next generation on the importance of protecting our planet.
The aim of this ground-breaking experience is to inspire more children than ever before about the importance of conservation and the natural world. With real-life animals, animatronics, film clips and much more, visitors to The Gruffalo Discovery Land at Twycross Zoo can encounter Fox, Owl, Snake, Mouse and the Gruffalo along their interactive journey through the deep, dark wood.
Admission to this fantastic new attraction is included in your half-price family pass.
