Chester Zoo in Upton-by-Chester is home to 12,000 animals in 125 acres of award-winning zoological gardens.

With daily animal talks, plenty of places to picnic, a huge gift and souvenir shop, and of course an amazing array of animals to see, you'll be spoilt for choice.

But things you definitely can't miss are the elephants playing under the waterfall in their enclosure, the amazing giraffe house, tropical houses and aviaries plus a boat ride around The Islands.

There are daily animal talks and lots of family-friendly events throughout the year including Halloween and Christmas events.

If you're struggling to get around the zoo on foot, then you can also take advantage of the zoofari monorail which runs the around the centre of the zoo and it also the perfect way to take in all the gardens, habitats and enclosures.

There are also plenty of places to sit and take a break, buy refreshments and food with three main restaurants with family meal deals available.
