Visited here and had a fun day out. You do need a full day to get to see everything. It was winter so a lot of the animals were inside which caused queues as the viewing windows were small. Particular favourites were the giraffes, monkeys,...More

I went to the Zoo for Lanterns at the Zoo. It was about 12GBP per person. There are multiple themed areas such as Wonderland, Animals, The Jungle and more. Each area features lanterns some in the shape of animals, animated lit-up puppets, and characters.

I strongly recommend coming here with family, friends, on a...More

There are hotels in nearby Chester. The closest is the doubletree Hilton in Hoole. Not cheap but very nice with a lovely spa. Beyond that hotela in cuty centre range from the 5 star Grosvenor hotel (expensive and a little tired) to standard budget chains. Zoo is a 5 minute drive from city Centre with buses taking you right to the gate.
