Latest Chester Zoo Review

New for 2015- Realm of the Red Ape - Visit this spectacular new attraction for the Zoo's Bornean and Sumatran orang-utans, including two youngsters, Budi and Utara, in their new tropical environment
"....... an absolutely superb day out the family had at Chester Zoo! Since our last visit ( two years ago), Chester zoo has made extraordinary efforts to update and renew all areas. It is really easy to get around, prices for lessons food & drinks are not too bad (including the beer garden!) The Zoo staff are friendly and helpful and the new butterfly house kept the children enthralled. We will definately be visiting again very soon. "

Following three wonderful days of excitement, prize-winning animals and family fun at the 2003 Show, plans are underway for yet another huge event in 2015! 

An enormous crowd of 62,000 people passed through the gates of zoo in May 2003 to enjoy the wide private jet variety of entertainment, witness parades of livestock and do a spot of shopping at the many tradestands on offer. 

2009 is set to surpass this…with even more top attractions (both in the Main Arena and the Showgrounds), top International Show Jumping, family entertainment, Sheep Shearing and live bands. Of course you will also have the opportunity to view Air Cargo Services the cream of Northern Ireland livestock competing for the prestigious prizes in the rings, which will have travelled from all over Ireland to take part. There will be a host of fun things for children to see and do, including playing with baby animals in the Children's Farm and having their faces painted.
