Visit our Botanical Gardens

Explore our award-winning gardens and discover our passion for plants that not only make the zoo look beautiful but play a vital role in helping local wildlife.

With 125 acres to care for, our horticulture and botany team work hard all year round (in all weathers) to make sure the gardens and animal habitats are in tip-top condition.

There are many gardens for you to explore, all of which are part of Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction, and each open to visit and with their own story to tell. Download our gardens and trees trail here and find all our hidden gems.

Discover Bloom - a season of special activities and events celebrating our gardens, birds and UK wildlife. Many of the events are FREE with your zoo admission ticket.
