You’ll pack loads of exciting stuff into a day at Chester Zoo – and even then you’ll probably want to come back for the rest!
We have 110 acres of award-winning gardens to explore, and over 11,000 animals to discover. (Yes – 11,000!)
The animals include more than 400 species of rare, exotic and endangered wildlife. We’ve designed our world-class enclosures and houses very carefully, to provide the best possible animal welfare as well as a fantastic, up-close experience for you.
You can see what some of the animals are up to right now with our zoo webcams.
We also have acres of award-winning gardens, where you’ll find all sorts of plants from around the world, reflecting our most exotic species’ natural habitats.
And if you’re coming with kids, you’ll be pleased to hear there’s the chance of a breather while the little darlings tear around the play areas we’ve dotted about the place.
There's always something extra taking place at the zoo from cycle rides, late summer opening, exclusive tours and more!Find out more
