You'll pack loads of exciting stuff into a day at Chester Zoo - and even then you'll probably want to come back for the rest! 

It's no surprise that Chester Zoo was recently rated the UK's number one zoo in TripAdvisor reviewers (and was in the top six worldwide) and they welcome over 1.4m visitors each year. Its 12,000 animals and 400 species - including some of the most exotic and endangered in the world - can easily absorb you for the whole day. And it's all set in over 125 acres of award-winning gardens.

New for 2015 is a whole new area of the zoo - Islands at Chester Zoo. It recreates the amazing tropical environments of six South East Asian islands, and includes the UK's largest indoor zoo exhibit, the sub-tropical Monsoon Forest.


 cheshire zoorhinobWe have 110 acres of award-winning gardens to explore, and over 11,000 animals to discover. (Yes - 11,000!)

The animals include more than 400 species of rare, exotic and endangered wildlife. We've designed our world-class enclosures and houses very carefully, to provide the best possible animal welfare as well as a fantastic, up-close experience for you.

We also have acres of award-winning gardens, where you'll find all sorts of plants from around the world, reflecting our most exotic species' natural habitats.

And if you're coming with kids, you'll be pleased to hear there's the chance of a breather while the little darlings tear around the play areas we've dotted about the place.
