Chester Zoo Big Cats

Made with toy bricks

Until Tuesday 30 April, discover the world’s biggest felines as you’ve never seen them before at Chester Zoo. We’re bringing you an incredible collection of BIG CATS to the zoo, made completely out of toy bricks.

Get close to 12 ROOOOOARSOME life-sized big cats that have been cleverly crafted using thousands of bricks. You’ll be able to explore the BIG CATS exhibition and discover more about these incredible species, as well as boost your brick-building skills by having a go at creating your own animal model. There are also plenty of playful cat-themed events and activities for you to get involved in! 

On top of that there are also ten other smaller animals made of toy bricks hidden around the zoo for you to discover. By taking part in our brick trail you can also be in with a chance of winning one of the models from the trail! Read the full competition terms and conditions here.

Don’t forget to pop into our ‘Brick Stop’ (open until Tuesday 30 April), which is located next to our Big Cats exhibition. Dive into our Brick Pit where you can let your mind run wild and get creative!  You can even buy a ‘Make and Take’ model or stock up on brick kits and light-up brick sets, so you can continue the brick-building fun! 

Join us for a puuuurfect day for all the family this spring!
