Road Directions

The motorway and road network means that Chester Zoo is easy to reach from all over the UK, and you can visit in under two hours from as far as Birmingham or Leeds. From the M56, Junction 14, or M53 Junction 12, follow the brown signs to Chester Zoo. The postcode for sat nav is CH2 1EU. The zoo is also clearly signed on the A41 Chester road. The zoo is on the national cycle network and there are cycle racks at both the main and pedestrian entrance.


Sunday bus service is now the same as weekdays. DB2 service – entrance via bridal path now so this needs updating as it is on

Opening Times

open (1 Jan 2018 - 31 Dec 2018)

* The zoo opens at 10am, please check for individual closing times.
