Botany Evening at Chester Zoo

Kickstart the last weekend in September with an exclusive evening event at Chester Zoo and let your senses run wild! Explore our exotic plant collections like never before and unwind with our botany and horticulture experts as they take you on a journey through some of our glorious spaces - giving you the opportunity to taste some of our very own home grown plants. Then quench your thirst with our botany-inspired cocktails and freshly prepared canapés, before finishing your evening with gin tasting, hosted by our friends at Cuckoo Gin, and learn all about how they use plants to create their award winning gin.

The Oakfield bar will then stay open for you to enjoy the rest of the evening at your leisure.

All cocktails and canapes served during the tour are included in the ticket price.
