Everybody loves the zoo, big, little, old or young, nothing cheers you up like watching animals in their “natural” habitat. It’s something that has fascinated us for years, yet we rarely get the opportunity to go and see some of the most beautiful creatures in the world. Here is your chance.

You will be staying in the 4* Thistle hotel, which received a TripAdvisor rating of 71% as well as a Certificate of Excellence for 2014. This hotel is situated at the East Midlands Airport, so it’s really easy to find because the airport is signposted everywhere!

This deal is available to you through travelzoo.co.uk for only £44.50 per person, if two adults go. However, if you wanted to take a family of up to 5 people, you would only have to pay £27 per person, so a total of £135. It’s perfect for those of you on a half-term deadline, because the week of half term is the same price as the rest of the days! Included in this deal is 1 night at the 4* Hotel, Breakfast the following morning and Twycross Zoo tickets! This is a really good deal, which normally costs a lot more!

Twycross Zoo has everything you could want from a zoo, it has elephants, penguims, lemurs and the biggest collection of primate species outside of Japan! It also has Amur leopards, which are the world’s rarest big cat. If that wasn’t enough, they’ve just had leopard cubs born at the zoo, so I would definitely try and get there whilst they’re still babies- so cute!

This is the perfect day away for both couples and families. It is the ultimate feel-good staycation. It gets you out and away from home, it keeps you busy and gives you something to coo about on your way home.
