We only get to come to Chester once ever year and always book for the zoo, and every year we love our day out. It is a complete escape from this crazy year and we love to see how much it has changed and just watch the animals. The new lion enclosure was amazing, as was the penguin screens, loved it. Perfect day out.

Had an amazing day out, good Covid measurements in place. Very well looked after Zoo, almost made me forget about the craziness happening with the world right now. Make sure to buy a ticket in advance, half day or full day tickets are available.

A wonderful day out in this huge zoo. We were there five hours and would have stayed longer if we weren't exhausted. Although one or two attractions were closed, this didn't detract from our enjoyment and there was a wealth of animals to see, all of which seemed healthy and happy in well designed enclosures. The rhinos, Andean bears and chimpanzees were among the highlights. More maps would have been nice - it was easy to lose one's bearings - but all in all a superb zoo.

We loved seeing all the animals and learning about the history of this wonderful place. The monkeys playing inside was lovely to see and it was amazing how close you can actually get to the giraffes(the best bit). When we went before covid there was still a lot closed so for some of the park you could walk passed 4 or 5 attractions in a row with nothing there which didn't build the excitement but had a great day none the less.
