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.
