“Great Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Brilliant- wonderful family day out. Zoo was fantastic, lovely and clean a great range of animals to see. We took a picnic, but there was lots of eating places.
The staff were friendly.
It was great to see so many animals in great enclosures.

“Great Day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

The zoo has almost every animal you can think of, it's a full day out to get around the zoo and experience all that you want to see
I would definitely recommend a trip here for families and individuals
I have done a recent blog post on my trip there, so you can have a sneak peak into what is on offer

This is a really great zoo with same amazing animals!! It is well organised but would recommend taking own food as the restaurant by the main entrance was beyond awful don't think the animals would eat it but the zoo itself is wonderful a true great day out.

“Chester zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Just simply the best day out. Fun for all the family. Fantastic selection of animals which are clearly very we'll cared for and so much information available everywhere you look. It is set out in stunningly maintained gardens. May strike you as quite pricy on arrival but by the end of the day you will think it great values for money. Plenty for places for refreshments. Or if you do as we did take a picnic and picnic areas are in abundance. Take your camera make sure it is fully charged because you will find it hard to turn your camera off. Watching the elephants feed is a must. Meerkat mansion is a magnet for anyone amusement
Can't wait to return. .
