Book online & save

Important message: Following Government advice on social distancing we have closed our gates to visitors for the foreseeable future, from 4.30pm, Saturday 21 March. Read our latest statement in full and FAQs here here.

You’ll always find our best prices online. Book more than 7 days in advance and you’ll save up to £4 per ticket compared with the price you’ll pay at the zoo on the day.

If you book online up to 9.30am on the day of your visit then you’ll still save £2 on each ticket compared with the price you’ll pay at the gates. So book early to get the best deal. And...parking is FREE.

Buy your group tickets in advance to save up to 30% and beat the queues with Fast Track admission. For further information and prices for groups of 15 (or more) please visit our group bookings page.

A small donation means a big difference

Chester Zoo is a charity and your ticket helps us protect endangered animals in the UK and around the world. If you add a 10% donation we can claim tax back from the government’s Gift Aid scheme.

This means we get an extra 25p for every £1 you spend at no extra cost to you.
