With over 20,000 animals and more than 500 rare, exotic and endangered species, Chester Zoo is a really wild day out!

You don't just see the animals at Chester Zoo, you can learn about them by reading, touching - and even smelling - the information panels. Much more than an ordinary zoo, you and your family can experience a recreation of the tropical environments of six South East Asia islands.

Chester Zoo is easy to reach by train as it's only a couple of miles from Chester station and there's a great zoo bus link to take you to the door!
