Bloom at Chester Zoo

Nature comes alive in spring and the zoo can be a relaxing and inspiring place to be. This year we are giving you the opportunity to get closer to nature than ever.

Watch the fluttering of the butterflies, listen to the song of our exotic birds in our awe-inspiring free flight aviaries and notice the buds emerging in our award winning gardens.

We’ll take you behind the scenes, introduce you to the experts who create our unique and beautiful landscapes and you’ll have the opportunity to become a UK wildlife conservationist too.

With a season of special events and the opening of our brand new wildlife reserve, escape to Chester Zoo this spring.

You can find all our events on our What's On page, or  you can explore the events by theme below.
