We’re closed for now…
Following Government advice on social distancing, Chester Zoo has closed its gates to visitors for the foreseeable future. Schools that have an educational visit booked before the end of April 2020 have been contacted directly with further information. If you have a question about a new educational visit or an existing booking for an educational visit taking place after the end of April please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bear with us as we may take a little longer to get back to you during this time.
