Chester Zoo

Chester Zoo is a zoological garden at Upton by Chester, in Cheshire, England. Chester Zoo was opened in 1931 by George Mottershead and his family. It is one of the UK's largest zoos at 125 acres.

With 20,000 animals, in 125 acres of award-winning zoological gardens? With the 1.6 million people who come to visit every year? Or with the many conservation projects they are involved with, at home and abroad?

The fact is, these are all vital parts of what makes Chester Zoo one of the world’s top zoos, and the UK’s number one wildlife attraction.
