Fabulous day at the zoo.. have been watching the Secret Life of the Zoo so great to see all the animals that we have been seeing in the TV!
Wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking involved!
Would be good to have the monorail going all around the outside with more stops for older people to jump on and off.
The animals are so well cared for and everything well looked after.

We had a an amazing day out at Chester zoo, I can remember bits from when I was a child and to bring my son back again was great, some fantastic animals to see, and the lazy boat was great to, only very sad fact was the passing of the two young elephants a few days before, so the mood was very moving around there enclosure

Had a good day wondering round the zoo, although quite a few animals were inside there was still lots to see and the inside enclosures were well heated.
The human food and drink was of good quality if a little expensive.

I have grown up lucky enough to have experienced a number of zoos up and down the country. Some better than others but Chester is by far the best.
The diverse range of animals is far superior than some zoos in the country (I mean some zoos don’t even have giraffes!) including species I had never even seen or heard of before - bush dogs for one!
The animals all look very well cared for with large enclosures where the care has been taken to replicate the wild as much as possible.
All the keepers were very friendly and full of knowledge about their animals and were willing to answer any questions.
There were lots of picnic areas in places that you could still see animals which meant you could eat and watch your favourites at the same time.
In terms of animal care and variety Chester Zoo is world class and you could tell this from being there! I will certainly be going back. It is also enjoyable to now watch Secret life of the Zoo and see all the animals and learn more about their personalities for when I return.

Came here with my mum was a great place to wander round all day. Went on the mono-rail around the zoo so you could see the zoo from above.

Loads to see and do highly recommend

After watching the TV series we were looking forward to the Zoo that soon disappeared once we were inside. Poetic Camera work on the animals and their living areas.

Great place to go. All the animals are kept in the best environments possible. One day wasn’t really enough, you could easily spend a weekend there. The staff are all very kind and helpful, especially at the entrance. We borrowed a wheelchair for the day, my only comment would be entrances and exits to some areas where a bit of a challenge for access. There’s plenty of indoor attractions and cafes, if the weather is inclement and overall it was worth it and truly enjoyable

A girlie weekend started at the zoo. We arrived in Chester long before we could check into our hotel so we arranged to go to the zoo. Lots of animals to see, a lovely walk around. Tiring but well worth a trip
