On this one-of-a-kind walking tour, discover the city’s most important Roman–era landmarks, and explore in the company of a costumed gladiator. Pick between two daily tour times, and set off on foot.

As a Family we love Chester Zoo and have been members for years. So much to see and do. Only issue is the patterning on pavements and anti slip strips on the bridges especially around islands make it nearly impossible and quite painful for my wife to access these area in her wheelchair. I appreciate the attempt to improve the aesthetics however it has destroyed the accessibility. would be worth the zoo consulting a OT and or user groups before designing / opening new areas

Children love the immediate wow factor of the elephants and the rhino as you enter the zoo. The clever design means that they are hooked on the excitement as soon as you enter. My top tip would be to spend a little time looking at the map before you visit Chester Zoo; you can download it from their website. This will allow you to bypass busy areas or find your way around to the favourite animals that the children want to see. Clearly, lots of investment has taken place in developing the lazy river boat trip and surrounding area. Unfortunately when we visited this was not running due to Covid restrictions but we will return one day to get up close to the animals in that area. When open, the Oakfield is a traditional English pub (find it near to the red pandas) where you can get a refreshing pint. Particularly useful on a long, hot day. Many of the indoor attractions were busy when we were there, particularly the Orangutan building. It might be worth heading there early to avoid the queues. Despite the difficulties the zoo was dealing with trying to deal with Covid, they did a good job. We will return again.

Make all the attractions wheelchair friendly - the Islands are a nightmare to negotiate. In fact I would say they are impassable. The fencing around the enclosures are of a height to block the view of somebody wheelchair height.

Visited for the lanterns and returned the following day for a day visit. The zoo was empty for the day visit and we saw everything we wanted to, really enjoyed the lemur walk and the red pandas. The lantern were well organised and social distancing wasn’t a problem Brilliant day we will be back
