Chester Zoo

Distance from Mollington Hall: 3.5 miles (8 mins by car) or regular buses from the city.

A fabulous day out with more than 11,000 amazing animals and plenty of activities and attractions for the whole family. One of the UK’s top zoos, with 110 acres of award-winning enclosures and gardens to explore.

There are over 400 different species here at the zoo, including some of the most exotic and endangered animals in the world. So there's plenty to explore on your visit.

 From the Chester Zoo web site:

"We have a whopping 11,000 animals at the zoo from 400 different species.

About half those species are on the threatened list. We’re one of the world’s leading centres for conservation, working in the UK and worldwide to help protect animals and plants from extinction.

We’re devoted to caring for own animals too, and are always looking for ways to make their lives even better. Our Animal Health Centre, for example, is decked out with the best possible facilities for the veterinary team.

As we learn more, we can do more to protect threatened species around the world. It’s incredibly important work. Not just because animals are lovely (although they are). But also because what happens to the wildlife affects everyone on Earth.

By looking after them, we’re looking after ourselves. We couldn’t do any of this without the support of visitors like you. So thank you."

Chester Zoo is open daily from 10am, with loads of free parking available. Buy tickets online and plan your day out here.
