Chester Zoo, Chester
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.
Chester Zoo Reviews
Great place to visit, however very expensive. Take your own food to make your trip cheaper. Great array of animals, lots of hard work by the keepers but too much money to get in. more »

Very good zoo and interesting but so badly laid out.. We spent an hour going round in circles with no clue on how to get where we wanted next, with people asking us to help find the exit later..
OH WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY WE HAD. I DID THE BAT EXPERIENCE, WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE OF ANY AGE TO VISIT THIS ZOO. YOU WON'T FIND A NICER ZOO ANYWHERE.
