The UK's number 1 zoo at Chester is an awesome visitor attraction with over 20,000 animals and more than 500 rare, exotic and endangered species.

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,within its 125 acres of gardens it has recreated the tropical environments of six South East Asia islands for you and your family to explore on your own expedition.

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!

Simply buy a combination ticket from your local train station at the same time as your rail ticket and it includes your return bus link from Chester station to the zoo AND your zoo admission in one discounted price. Check it out on the website
