Book Your School Visit

It’s really easy to book a school visit!

If you’re coming to the zoo for a self-guided educational visit, just give our Discovery and Learning team a call on 01244 650205 or 01244 389444 and we’ll take all your details over the phone and then send you a confirmation letter which you’ll need to bring with you on the day.

If you’d like to have one (or more) of our popular workshops, take a look at what we offer in the appropriate Key Stage link and then just give us a call on 01244 650205 or 01244 389444 to arrange available dates and time slots.

Once you’ve decided on these, we’ll ask you to complete one of our booking forms:


When you’ve completed both pages of the booking form, please email it to us at or pop it in the post to:

Discovery and Learning Division, Chester Zoo, Caughall Road, Upton, Chester, CH2 1LH

We’ll confirm the booking back to you, once we’ve received the form.

A couple of things we should mention...

It’s a condition of booking that we have the name of the Group Leader and a mobile contact for them whilst in the zoo.

Also, if you decide to cancel the workshops once we’ve received your booking form, we do reserve the right to charge for these if we are unable to re-fill the sessions.

Our office hours are 8:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday. If our phones are busy, please leave a message and we will return your call within two working days. And, if you’re bringing littlies and would like to receive our free wristbands, don’t forget to mention this at the time of booking.
