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're now open!

Please pre-book your tickets to the zoo online in advance. We look forward to seeing you soon!

**Please note that any new members won’t be able to pre-book a member visit until you’ve received your membership pack. If you plan to visit us before your pack arrives, so long as there are no booking restrictions in place on that day, you can just pop in to see the membership team at the main entrance at the start of your visit and they will be able to issue your new membership cards. You may want to book a standard ticket if you are visiting soon and we can upgrade you to membership on the day! **

If you want to split the cost up, why not join with our Direct Debit scheme.

For this option, we will split your membership fee into 4 instalments over the first 4 months. The first payment will be due at the time of joining us. If you have already purchased an admission ticket for your visit, we can of course deduct this from the cost for you. Please note, there may be a remaining fee to pay on the day. This joining method is available over the telephone or by popping into our Membership Office

Choose which memberships you’d like to buy below and we’ll automatically show the best price for you. Sign up to renew by Direct Debit in 12 months' time and you'll pay up to 10% less. If buying as a gift, confirmation of Direct Debit setup will be posted direct to the payer.

Previous memberships and renewals - if you're renewing an existing membership or have been members before please email and we'll process it over the phone for you. Need any more information about our memberships? – take a look here
