Chester Zoo


With over 11,000 animals, set in 110 acres of award winning zoological gardens, Chester Zoo one of the world’s top zoos, and the UK’s number one wildlife attraction. It is around a 10-15 minute drive away from The White Horse and has free parking. It is a great day out for both children and adults and has almost everything you can thing of! You literally can get face to face with a lion or hold exotic butterflies! Elephants, Giraffes, Exotic Birds, Tigers, Jaguars, Camels, Insects, Bats, Reptiles, Zebras, Meerkats, Reptiles, Seals, Flamingos, Lemurs, Monkeys, Penguins, Giant Otters (did you do a 'compare the meerkat' impression in your head? Simples!). And so many more...

For any less able visitors, the zoo has mobility buggies (must reserve!)

We would recommend a fairly early rise if you want to take in all of Chester Zoo. There are plenty of good food venues there or you can take your own picnic. The web designer's favourites are the red pandas!
