Attractions & Exhibits

You’ll pack loads of exciting stuff into a day at Chester Zoo – and even then you’ll probably want to come back for the rest!

We have 125 acres of award-winning gardens to explore, and over 12,000 animals to discover. (Yes – 12,000!)

The animals include more than 400 species of rare, exotic and endangered wildlife. We’ve designed our world-class enclosures and houses very carefully, to provide the best possible animal welfare as well as a fantastic, up-close experience for you.

We also have acres of award-winning gardens, where you’ll find all sorts of plants from around the world, reflecting our most exotic species’ natural habitats.

And if you’re coming with kids, you’ll be pleased to hear there’s the chance of a breather while the little darlings tear around the play areas we’ve dotted about the place.
