Not only can you get closer to wonderful wildlife this winter by booking a visit to the zoo, you can also let the outside in by getting out in nature on a winter walk or see what UK wildlife you can spot – you might be surprised at what you find.

We also have LOADS of other fun ways you can get closer to nature and help save wildlife at the same time.

VISIT OUR NATURE RESERVE

Inspired by the incredible wildlife found right here in the UK? The next time you visit the zoo, why not venture to our other nature haven, located next to our car park. Surround yourself with the sights and sounds of nature, and switch off from the hustle and bustle for a little while.

The Nature Reserve is free to visit – but please just be mindful of others and ensure you continue to follow social distancing guidelines. Unfortunately, no dogs are allowed due to the precious and endangered wildlife that can be found in the reserve.

A TALE OF THREE WINTERS

Calling all schools! Join us for a theatrical extravaganza as we travel back in time to meet the founders of Chester Zoo, the Mottershead family, as they prepare for winter at the zoo in the 1930s. Before then jumping through time to winters present and future! This interactive virtual session is available from 30 November – 31 January 2021, and brings the magic of theatre, live activities and learning together to give you the perfect winter treat for your learners.
