Arrived quite excited heard so much about the zoo we planned a trip to Chester centred around coming to the zoo.
Entry £43 approx for 2. Didn’t like the fact they almost causally donated another 10% to a charity, muttered under her breath about it, when I asked she clarified I said no, cheeky. The price should be the price, that’s as bad as adding gratuity without permission in a restaurant.
Inside a decent sized park, space. Monorail broken, but even if you want it it’s additional charge, really,
Viewing areas overun with overgrown greenery, and where I am all for being able to provide habitat for animals provided limited viewing for most vantage points.
Trying to see black rhinos and fellow visitor with wheelchair visitor that could not see, overgrown shrubbery.
The zoo was deserted, lots of closed areas and from about 3pm seemed they were packing the animals away.
Managed to see elephants, red panda, giraffes. black rhinos and few other things. Lots of manky glass, should be cleaned more regularly. Poor signage and the app was not very easy to follow. Nothing to write home about.
Sorry Chester not for me, left disappointed.
