From new arrivals to first steps, there is NEVER a dull moment at Chester Zoo!

All of our indoor habitats are currently closed in line with the Government’s Tier 4 restrictions, but many of our 35,000 animals can be seen outside.

Keep an eye on our website here for the latest updates.


Explore underwater habitats  without stepping foot in the sea and discover a watery world home to seahorses, brittle stars, blind fish, pipefish, anemone and clownfish.

Discover what unique wildlife can be found in the depths of the oceans  across the planet and the important role they play. You might be surprised with what you find here; there are aquatic species of all shapes, sizes and colours.

Plus you’ll be able to see how we grow our own coral!
