We’re re-opening! 

In line with the government roadmap for reopening, we will be reopening the zoo on 12th April 2021.

We will also be restarting our outreach programme. We are following all of the latest government guidance to ensure the safety of all participants.

If you have any questions please visit our ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW section or contact the team learning@chesterzoo.org

If an outreach visit isn’t right for you right now, we have LOADS of free resources and virtual sessions to access and book.

BRINGING THE ZOO TO YOU!

Our outreach team can bring a range of dynamic workshops and shows to your school or community. Our exciting array of interactive workshops cover all sorts of different topics and are tailored to different age groups. We can work with groups of all ages across the North West and you can create your own BESPOKE day with our different sessions on offer! We’re always happy to discuss your needs beforehand so your group have the BEST possible experience from our visit.
