Chester Zoo details...

One of the best places to go in the North West is Chester Zoo so make your plans for a wonderful day out with all the family and discover over 15,000 wonderful animals and 500 different species including some of the most endangered in the world and some of the most exotic in the world.

The popular attraction and important conservation zoo has a superb population of animals ranging from the magnificent elephants and rhinos to the delicate butterflies, there is a different animal to see around every corner of amazing 125 acres of award-winning gardens. Explore the new Islands on a Lazy River Boat trip, explore new animal habitats as part of your expedition through six South East Asian islands and get closer to some of the most unique and endangered animals on Earth.

There are plenty of food and refreshment opportunities with all requirements catered for. Let the kids have some time in the adventure play area while you relax over a coffee. They can try out the brand new Madagascar Play Space where they can climb like a lemur and uncover tree-top hideaways in the Lost Forest, crawl across the scramble nets like an aye-aye or play on our sandy beach.

The Zoo is open every day from 10am with plenty of free parking. Book your tickets online and save up to 10% and beat the queues with Fast Track entry, tickets prices vary according to the season and the day of the week.
