A fabulous zoo with emphisis on conservation. Cleverly laid out in regions and notices giving clear information. The cafe at the enterance was clean, friendly and offering tasty food. We didn't like paper cups with plastic lids! Not environmently friendly

Our return visit has excellent . Good crisp autumn day with the new babies out and some firm animal favourites for us.
Notable new babies -Rhino / Elephant/ Orangetan .
The zoo is very user friendly for visitors and the animal enclosures give maximum viewing the animals up close. Brilliant day and new areas open for visitors to see .
The penguins were available for visitors to see this time.
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plenty refreshments and restaurant eating areas around the zoo as well as toilet amenities.
Took loads of photos

This was hands down one of the best zoos I have ever been too. It was very educational and terrific to read so much of their conservation work.

Great for kids and adults!

I had not been to Chester zoo in years it has had a few addons since I was last there I love the Aisa area sailing around on the boat was super , this is a fantastic day out, the zoo is so well kept ,the gardens, the history and if you like a drink there is still a bar in the old house.if you are local to the area and have kids it would make sence to have a season ticket. if you have not been befor you are in for a treat this is a full day out and well worth a viset.
