The Chester Zoo Memory Café is a place for people with dementia, their families, friends and carers to come together and enjoy a cuppa in the unique setting of the zoo.

Our friendly staff and volunteers will be on hand to have a chat and share the latest news from the zoo. Refreshments are available to purchase from Bembe Coffee Shop.

Bembe Coffee Shop is at the main entrance, which is free to access and has plenty of FREE parking too. You can find Bembe Coffee shop on the right hand side of Jubilee Quarter, just behind Adventure HQ. Our friendly staff at the entrance are on hand to point you in the right direction.

Our Memory Café is free to attend and there is no need to book. However, we ask that groups of more than five, or groups visiting from care homes contact us beforehand to check availability and ensure we can reserve enough seating for your party. If you are planning to attend as part of a large group, please email
