Chester Zoo

Home to over 11,000 animals and over 400 different species, Chester Zoo is a great day out for all the family.

Just a fifteen minute drive from The Chester Grosvenor, the zoo has award-winning gardens, exciting play areas and fantastic exhibits including Europe's largest orangutang enclosure.

New in 2015, Islands at Chester Zoo offers an authentic and immersive experience as you explore the recreation of the amazing tropical environments of six South East Asian Islands. Now open, phase one includes Panay, Papua, Sulawesi and Sumba, including a Lazy River Boat Trip, that will give you an extra special view of the exotic and endangered species living just outside Chester city centre! Phase two, opening later in the summer, will include Monsoon Forest and Sumatra.
