There are lots of bus routes nearby and many come right to our main entrance.

If you’re travelling from Chester you can take the Number 1 service from Chester Bus Exchange or the X1 bus links Chester Train Station to Chester Zoo.

If you’re travelling from Liverpool you can also take the Number 1 service or the X1 service (which has fewer stops and is a quicker!).

For all other public transport options you can call Traveline on 0871 200 2233 or visit their website here


You can book day trips or longer excursions to the zoo through your local holiday or coach company.  If you are visiting the zoo from Bradford, Leeds or Manchester you can travel on a daily service with National Express.  Either visit the National Express website or call into your local National Express office for more details.
