You can easily spend a full day out in the zoo, particularly if you have children. It is constantly expanding with lots of fun activities

Perfect place to see animals in a natural environment. Each visit is completely different and all the animal enclosures are huge, giving them all plenty of space to move around. The grounds are immaculate and everywhere is well maintained and spotlessly clean. The children's play areas are brilliant and there are plenty of places to dine. It's hard to fit everything in on a single visit. Car parking is well organised

First time visiting the zoo, did not expect the whole day to go around everything! Was an amazing experience seeing all the animals, food was okay considering it was basic theme park food! Very fansinating facts throughout the park on each animals, and is still a growing zoo! Would recommend this zoo to anyone. Only issue I found was many children on school trips.. but this is expected.

Have lived in Chester all my life so have been visiting the zoo since I was a child. Every time I go it just keeps getting better. A massive hats off to the staff and all of the volunteers there.

Beautiful grounds with environmentally designed enclosures to create as natural an habitat for the animals as possible. Innovative breeding programs for endangered species not commercialized. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The entire zoo was spotlessly clean. And the food available was of good quality and tasty. Not over priced. A great day out for all ages.
