Chester Zoo is a fantastic and unique learning experience for everyone and can bring your text books and school lessons to life!

Chester Zoo offers a brilliant and unique learning outside the classroom environment for students of all ages! 

With our incredible 11,000 animals, our amazing collection of artefacts and our enthusiastic experts ready and waiting to share their passion for the natural world with you, a visit here is the perfect way to bring your text books to life!

We have some great new curriculum-linked workshops lined up for this Autumn Term and we’re particularly excited about our seasonal treat for KS1 and 2 children in which Santa Claus himself puts in an appearance.

Whether you’re interested in one of our workshops or prefer a self-guided visit, we’re here to help you make the most from your day and to provide a great learning experience for your pupils.

So, take a look in the menu on the left and the particular Key Stage you’re interested in.  All You Need to Know will give you the brass tacks you need to make your school visit to our exciting, awe-inspiring and multi-sensory venue a great educational day out.  

If you want to chat to us to find out more, you can find our contact details on the Book Your Visit page.

We’re looking forward to meeting the conservationists of the future!
