Add Gift Aid at no extra cost

Gift Aid won't cost you anything extra, as a registered charity we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you spend - giving us more money to help save endangered wildlife around the world.

I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. Gift Aid can only be claimed on donations for you and members of your family that visit Chester Zoo.

We can't wait to welcome you to the zoo!

Please pre-book your tickets to the zoo online in advance. See you soon!
