Book Your School Visit

It’s really easy to book a school visit!

For all free school visits, phone 01244 650205 or 01244 389444 or email your enquiry to learning@chesterzoo.org. We want to give priority to the schools that didn’t have the opportunity to book free school places last winter (November 2017 to February 2018), so this offer is only eligible for them.


If you’re coming to the zoo for a self-guided educational visit, either give our Discovery and Learning team a call on 01244 650205 or 01244 389444, or complete a booking form and email it to learning@chesterzoo.org.

We will 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:

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 8-5pm Monday to Wednesday and 8-4pm Thursday 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.

Free school visits:

We’re pleased to offer free entry to the zoo for 35,000 school pupils visiting between 1 November 2018 and 28 February 2019, in a bid to broaden the impact of our work as a conservation and education charity inspiring the next generation of conservationists. If you would like to book a school visit during this time and have not yet done so, please book your visit here. The number of free admission places and admissions per day is limited. If the limit is reached you may be asked to visit on another day and/or book using our discounted educational rates. Please make sure you read our T+C's before booking.
