Awful visit to a supposed top attraction. Very few animals were visible, most of the pens were empty. No notices of what's not available to see. Absolute waste of money even for February.

friendly staff efficient and polite and helpful always have time to chat , loved the animals and the zoo , found the food typically priced for a tourist place but the quality of the food was vastly superior to normal parks and enjoyed it greatly , looking forward to the new expansions , definitely go again!

Me and my partner enjoyed a great day out at Chester Zoo, this is something everyone should do while visiting Chester.

The range of animals was amazing including Tigers, Orangutans and the endangered Black Rhino. I definitely recommend the Chimpanzee, Lion and Elephant talks and getting the monorail to explore the two different halfs of the zoo.

Chester Zoo definitely rivals London and Edinburgh Zoos. Just to be warned it is not a cheap day out and you will need at least 3 - 4 hours to go round.

My husband and I got married at the zoo and it was the best experience of our lives. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the value was incredible and the zoo itself was clean and full of amazing animals and photo opportunities. I would recommend the zoo any time for children and adults of all ages!
