Fodor's Expert Review Chester Zoo
Well-landscaped grounds and natural enclosures make the 80-acre zoo one of Britain’s most popular and also one of its largest. Highlights include the Realm of the Red Ape, the jaguar enclosure, and the Dragons in Danger habitat. Baby animals are often on display. Eleven miles of paths wind through the zoo, and you can use the water-bus boats or the overhead train to tour the grounds. Fun 10-minute animal talks, aimed at kids, take place at various locations around the zoo throughout the day; little ones will especially love the Madagascar PLAY zone.
