Chester Zoo

A wild day out for all.

With 125 acres to explore, there are over 20,00 wonderful animals at the award winning Chester Zoo - voted one of the top zoos in the world and the UK's number one charity zoo.

From the magnificent elephants and rhinos to the delicate butterflies, there is a different animal to see around every corner.

With daily animal talks, events, themed play areas, coffee shops, a choice of restaurants and kiosks, there's something to suit everyone's tastes. Kids and grown ups will love the Zoofari monorail, it gives you a giraffe's eye view of the zoo. Or, take things a little easier and relax on the lazy river boat trip
