A visit to Cheshire isn’t complete without a trip to the UK’s number one zoo. Chester Zoo is home to over 27,000 endangered and exotic animals based in beautiful, award-winning zoological gardens. With over 500 different animal species in our 125 acres, you’re sure to have great day out full of adventure - discovering and learning more about our INCREDIBLE animals and plants.
Throughout spring, we’ll be shining a spotlight on the more unusual and lesser known species that you may be SURPRISED to find we have here at the zoo. Join our Zoo Rangers during February half term for a programme of events that will uncover new and interesting facts about species, plus explore EXCITING spaces with our Discover Something New Trail and create unforgettable zoo MEMORIES.
The fun doesn’t stop there! Why not turn your zoo visit into an ADVENTURE and book one of our unique Experiences that gives you an incredible opportunity to get closer to animals and plants, as well as gain behind the scenes knowledge from our AMAZING experts.
Visiting the zoo can be hungry work so why not make a meal of your visit and stop for a bite at one of the many restaurants, cafes and kiosks located throughout the zoo. From classic family friendly dishes, to tasty street food and authentic South East Asian inspired dishes.
If you’re looking for something special, our contemporary British pub The Oakfield serves freshly prepared locally sourced food and hand-picked beers, wines, and spirits which is sure to warm up your winter zoo visit.
We hope to welcome you soon!
