This endangered Philippine mouse deer is the first ever born in the UK and is a huge boost to the species! She's not much bigger than a Christmas bauble on four little legs.

BIG NEWS: Elephant calf born overnight!

The momentous arrival for our family herd of endangered Asian elephants was captured live on CCTV. This is the second rare elephant birth in a month!

Watch this amazing footage: mum Sithami gives birth onto deep sand. Her instincts take hold, stimulating the calf by kicking up the sand. The excited herd then gather round to help!

Zoo featuring rare and endangered species in lush, ornate gardens, with a water bus and a monorail.- Google
"Better to bring own food as there are benches to sit down and eat."
"Chester zoo is alright but it is a big place so people can get lost very easily"

Modern zoo, loads of sections to keep you busy. We arrived with hiking bags so the large locker was big enough for 2. Only £4 for for 4 hours rent as well. You can also go back and grab something else and lock again. Highly recommend the whole venue. Take your own food though.

THE best zoo in the UK bar none! You simply have to visit it to believe it. Such a vast array of animals, and the zoo is deeply committed to conservation so everything is there for a reason. Great cafes / coffee spots and super gift shops. Go & visit you won't be disappointed.

Visited Chester Zoo on the weekend of 26th November and found it very interesting. There was such a wide range of animals at the zoo and the enclosures where very impressive. The set up of the zoo made it enjoyable to roam about learning about all sorts of animals all day. The enclosures where the animals are kept seemed very suitable for each species, there was lots of room and many where set out like the natural habitats of the animals like the enclosures of the Painted Dogs for example.It was also very entertaining that it was set out like a conservation camp in Tanzania where the Painted Dogs are from. The Ape enclosures where also very good with lots of enrichment activities for the animals in the enclosure and also lots of information for the visitors outside as well as fun activities for example the chance to have a go at a task that monkeys do in the wild and most of our attempts where slower than the time the monkeys would complete it in! Overall the zoo is very enjoyable and informative, even in the cold weather!

The Meerkat feeding experience was fantastic, I was sitting on a rock surrounded by them and some getting very comfy on my knee! It was unbelievable being that close to them and being able to feed them. The keeper was brilliant and very informative he certainly knew his stuff. Would highly recommend it thank you for a brilliant time.

Excellent place for a family day out. Been a member for years and go several times each year. Winter is the best time to go due to it being so quiet and all the animals are calmer and more relaxed, much better experience if you can stand the cold and all the little food and drink stands being closed. Overall love the place and the work they do and will continue to be a member for years to come.

Overwhelmingly fun. A huge zoo with (almost) every animal you can think of. Having been to most zoos in the UK, this is definitely THE best. Some animals may take a little searching for, but you'll find them if you're patient. The animals are really well cared for, and they look really comfortable in their spacious, natural exhibits (some of the biggest I've seen!). While the zoo layout may be a tad confusing, the staff are never far away and are always happy to help. As for the prices, every zoo is pricey for food and drink etc, but at least the money goes to a good place, and with Chester, you can be sure it's being used to help the animals that need it most. I think from now on, I will compare every zoo I visit to Chester. 11/10!

We are lucky enough to have Chester Zoo on our door step and we have been members for 3 years now, we used to go from time to time but when you add it all up makes sense of your local to get membership. If your not lucky enough to live in Chester not to worry you can have a great fun day with all the family. The animals are well looked after to the top caliber, I've read a few comments on her saying that some of the animals have gone crazy and should be released, granted there is maybe 1 or 2 animals that look this way it is boredom but the zoo do try to try different things with them to keep them stimulated and if it wasn't for the zoo's, Chester zoo in impartial I'm sure a lot more animals would be endangered or extinct. Chester Zoo is a conservation zoo and has excellent breeding programs so during your visit you're more than likely going to see a baby or two, latest to the list is a beautiful baby elephant. They have a unlimited deal on drink refill for £8 for the day which when you consider a drink would normally set you back around the £3 mark is good value. There is a pub in the centre joined on the the now famous Oakfield House and you can book a tour of this our just have afternoon tea and scone. There are many gift shops and places to eat the most interesting place to eat would now be located in Islands where you can get a Thai curry or done thing else exotic, on Islands they have spent a lot off money on this making it pin of the best zoo's in the world and islands will be amazing when finished at the moment they are on phase 2 but I personally believe they should have waited till fully open to open the whole thing in one swoop as some exhibits are currently empty. IT WILL BE AMAZING THOUGH! And the New Croc is amazing and not shy to come and say hello to you. Despite Islands not being fully open currently the zoo has plenty to offer the whole family. Different events like the Christmas lanterns to name one. Enjoy! Chester Zoo deserves 5 star rating. I'll update with Islands when it's fully open.

Have just been to Lantern Magic with our little girl and we all absolutely loved it! Spellbinding lights and fantastic interactive "acts" 💓 We have zoo memberships and have been many times and always had a good experience. The animals are obviously well cared for and the zoo clearly does a lot for conservation. Particular favourite is the bat cave!
