Chester Zoo is one of the best places for viewing wildlife in the UK. The 45 hectare (111 acre) site houses more than 11,000 animals. See the greater one-horned rhinoceros on the Asian Plains, elephants in the Asian Forest, and jaguars in one of the world's largest jaguar enclosures. Walk through Butterfly Journey to completely surround yourself with the colorful winged creatures, and enter the Fruit Bat Forest to observe these giant bats. You can sit in on various animal talks throughout the day, and make sure you also spend time in the diverse, award-winning gardens. Choose from six different restaurants and kiosks. If you're traveling with small children, consider renting a buggy to ferry them around the zoo. Use our Chester trip site to add Chester Zoo and other attractions to your Chester vacation plans.

One of the best Zoo which is located in Chester, United Kingdom. The Zoo where we can see varieties of Animals. And covered with Plants & Trees. Quite love watching & observing the Animals. Full enjoyment & truly it is like Adventure. Recommended to visit!
Outstanding zoo with incredible enclosures. Really informative on conservation and clearly playing a major role Internationally. Needed first aid assistance when a member of the family had a funny turn and staff were on hand and excellent. The food hall was good and despite being very busy, pretty efficient getting through the queues. Highlight of the visit for me was seeing the Tigers. Highly recommended day out, make sure and book in advance for discount tickets.
