Chester Zoo is home to over 15,000 endangered and exotic animals based in beautiful, award-winning gardens. With 500 different animal species in our 125 acres, you’re sure to have an adventure discovering and learning about our amazing animals and gardens.
The action never stops at Chester Zoo. We could be welcoming new animals one day and hosting exciting events the next. Take a look at what we have planned for 2017:
PLAY! – Time to show us your fun side in our new animal based activities around the zoo.
The Enchantment of Chester Zoo – Discover all of our nocturnal creatures in our Halloween inspired event.
The Lanterns – join us to celebrate a magical Christmas at the zoo.
Conservation and education are at the heart of everything we do at Chester Zoo. We are committed to providing the highest standards of care for our animals, as well as protecting native and international wildlife. Our team of expert and knowledgeable staff work hard to care for our animals and support conservation, but are also passionate about connecting our visitors to the natural world. We have a variety of tours and hands-on experiences, as well as daily animal talks to guarantee your day is full of animal adventure.
Stop for a snack at one of our many restaurants, cafes and kiosks located throughout the zoo or let the kids run wild in one of our adventure play areas. We’re a huge zoo, but we’ve got plenty of options for getting around including our Zoofari Monorail and our Lazy River Boat Trip. Don’t forget to stop in at the gift shop on your way out for a souvenir of your trip.
