VENUE & HOW TO GET THERE
How to get here by Car:
The Zoo is well signposted on the main roads around Chester; just follow the motorway signs towards Chester and you will see the brown zoo signs as you approach the city.
Once you get onto the A41, from whichever direction, simply stay on that road until you reach a roundabout with a large wooden ark on it. From there follow the signs into the zoo. Sat Navs get confused so please ignore them once you get onto the A41. And don’t turn down Flag Lane North as it’s a dead end.
Car parking is free and disabled car parking spaces are available close to the zoo entrance. NB Blue badges must be displayed to use the disabled parking area.
The Chester ‘Pink Route’ takes you from the city centre to our main entrance – or you can take the ‘Brown Route’ along the canal. Both routes can be found on this PDF. Or you can plan a cycle route using this online tool from the Chester Cycling Campaign.
How to get here by Train:
Chester Zoo is easy to reach by train and is only a couple of miles from both Chester and Bache train stations, with easy transport links from either station.
How to get here by Bus:
There are lots of bus routes nearby and many come right to the main entrance.
If you’re travelling from Chester you can take the Number 1 service from Chester Bus Exchange or the X1 bus links Chester Train Station to Chester Zoo.
If you’re travelling from Liverpool you can also take the Number 1 service or the X1 service (which has fewer stops and is a quicker!).
