Enjoy a spectacular trip to Chester zoo or Sightseeing around Chester City


Visit Chester and its bewitching beauty and unique atmosphere make Chester one of Britain’s most popular places. The city is famous for many things and attracts visitors from all around the world for that very reason.  Chester has the most complete city walls, the oldest racecourse, and largest Roman Amphitheater in Britain, plus a 1000 year old cathedral and 700 year old unique shopping rows. Explore the city aboard an open top or heritage bus, take a guided walking tour of the city or enjoy a leisurely sail up the river on one of Chester’s pleasure cruises.


Visit Chester's spectacular zoo, enjoy a range from the worlds most threatened tortoise, the roaring lions to the incredible life of the Carnivorous plants in the secret gardens of Chester. Here are a few of the animals at Chester zoo.


  • Bornean and Sumatran orangutans. Originally the islands were connected to each other until around 40,000 years ago, allowing each species to evolve independently. Orangutans are our closest living relatives on the planet, sharing 97% of our DNA.

  • Flamingos live in big flocks and live for around 30 years. Their iconic pink feathers are made waterproof by a preen gland which releases an oil. The colouration of their feathers comes from the tiny plants and invertebrates they eat!

  • Cheetah’s, Look closely and you’ll see why they can run at such high speeds. A cheetah has very lean muscles, slender legs and an athletic, flexible spine. Their wide nostrils allow them to breathe in lots of oxygen when running, and their lungs and hearts are built to cope with all of that extra oxygen.

  • Andean bears are sometimes referred to as spectacled bears because of the white rings they sometimes have around their eyes, making them look like they’re wearing a pair of specs! Their short muzzle with wide flat teeth helps them chew through vegetation and tree bark, and their thick shaggy fur keeps them warm at high altitudes.

  • Black Rhino’s horns are made from a protein called keratin (just like our fingernails and hair). Their thick skins protect them from sharp thorns when browsing and their ears are able to manoeuver to source where sounds are coming from.

  • Chimps each have individual features, just like we do, including skin colour, hair cover and facial shapes. They also have opposable thumbs and toes which they can use to grip tools, long arms for ‘knuckle walking’ and reaching, and extreme strength which helps them moving through canopies.

  • Asian elephants are smaller than their African cousins, and Intelligent and sociable, they live together in family groups and are usually led by the oldest female. Their most distinctive feature is of course their long trunks which can be very powerful, but also very delicate when needed to forage for food.

  • Giraffes tongues can measure up to 45cm long – great for helping them pull down leaves, shoots, bark and flowers off tree branches to eat. They have a special valve in their neck that stops the blood rushing to their head when they bend down to drink.
