Chester Zoo is 128 acres of beautiful grounds, exceptional animal habitats, themed landscapes filled with DIVERSE architecture and a further 400 acres of luscious Cheshire countryside, including ponds, woodland and farm buildings.

We can provide a wonderful setting for commercial filming and photography, and have the space to welcome crews of all sizes.

Conveniently located off the M56, and in easy reach of Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham, our main visitor car park can easily provide a base for your crew if required. With notice, we can arrange interviews with our expert zoo keepers and scientists, or provide closer access to animal habitats.

Although we want to encourage a connection to the natural world, our animals cannot be disturbed from their natural behaviours. Therefore, there will be no entry to any habitats other than our walk-through spaces. We recommend you visit us first to get a feel for the zoo, or we can send a selection of photographs if provided with a brief.
