Getting here by foot or bike


Travelling by foot…

If you’re walking from home, the bus stop or from Bache train station, there’s a short cut to our main entrance using the public bridle path on Flag Lane North.

You’ll find walking directions via the bridle path here – just type in your starting point to find the quickest route.


Travelling by bike…

It’s healthy for you and great for the environment. PLUS, cyclists get 15% off zoo tickets as a reward for green travel!

Just bring this voucher with you when you cycle to the zoo and hand it to us when you buy your tickets. We’ve got plenty of cycle racks at the main entrance!

Helpful bike routes can be found on this PDF. The ‘Pink Route’ takes you from the city centre to our main entrance. Alternatively, you can follow the ‘Brown Route’ for a more scenic journey along the canal. Or you can plan a cycle route using this online tool from the Chester Cycling Campaign.
