Local Amenities

Himalaya offers visitors a delicious array of food and drink featuring locally sourced ingredients from ethical suppliers. Their light bites and lunch menu offers a delicious selection of hot and cold food, served daily until 3pm. They also have a great range of children’s food, from lunchboxes to kids’ favourites including fish fingers, pasta Bolognese, and more, all served with a fresh salad or vegetables. Breakfast is served on weekends and holidays.

For all your shopping needs visit the shop in the Himalaya where they have an array of toys, gifts and souvenirs, plus near enough every species of animal in cuddly toy form. They also stock a range of “day out essentials”, so if the weather suddenly changes we have umbrellas and sun cream to purchase.
As a zoo, we support ethical suppliers and stock a wide range of Fair Trade products from around the world. As a visitor, you too can make a real difference. Every purchase you make is important as 100% of the profits from our retail outlets are used to support the work of Twycross Zoo and worldwide conservation projects.
