And we’ve teamed up with the attraction to give you the chance to win a family day out for four people.

The new four-acre land has been developed in partnership with brand managers Magic Light Pictures and is inspired by the best-selling picture book The Gruffalo written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. The partnership brings together this much-loved children’s character and a conservation organisation that exists to protect wildlife, preserve endangered species and educate the next generation on protecting our planet.

With real-life animals, animatronics, film clips and much more, visitors to The Gruffalo Discovery Land at Twycross Zoo will encounter Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and the Gruffalo along their interactive journey through the deep dark wood.
