Chester Zoo is without a doubt the best zoo I've ever been to! So many animals to see, the gardens are beautiful, facilities were superb and the staff were really friendly! We went as a couple but families would absolutely love it here! I should also mention we had a meal in one of the restaurants and were nicely surprised at the value for money and size of portions!

An excellent Zoo with a wide range of aninals which are kept in tip top condition.The only criticism I could make is that not everything in the park is included in the entry price.

Chester Zoo is a world class zoo. I have visited many other zoos around the world but nothing beats Chester Zoo. There is plenty to see. The exhibits are excellent and informative. You will find it hard to fit it all into one visit. Staff are friendly and the souvenirs are reasonably priced. The food is typical for a British tourist attraction, meaning it will fill your belly and empty your wallet, but that's about it. The coffee was good for those cold, damp October mornings. Don't miss the butterfly house, bat forrest and chimpanzees!!! Don't fret about fitting in the monorail. It's an overpriced ride in an elevated shopping trolley. Skip it and go to the Monkey House a second time.
