Chester Zoo Family Break
A perfect excuse to monkey around!
Take a Best Western short family break to Chester Zoo and you'll soon see why it's the number one zoo in England.
A family short break to Chester Zoo is recommended because of its:
- 7000 animals
- Award winning gardens
- Obvious lack of bars and cages
- Conservation work
Where could you encounter the extremely rare Black Rhino or Red Panda? Chester Zoo of course. This wonderful zoo is home to countless endangered species and every one of them is cared for by their devoted keepers.
As there is nothing to hinder your view, you will get to fully appreciate the animals in their natural environment.
So what is there to do in and around Chester Zoo?
With over 400 different species of rare, endangered and exotic creatures you are sure to spot your favourite here.
Stroll through the award winning gardens. With 110 acres of gardens and 11 miles of footpath, you are free to discover every inch of this amazing zoo at your own pace. For a more gentle approach, why not take a trip on the waterbus, or take to the skies and see the zoo from the tree tops on their Monorail.
As the number one charity zoo, Chester works very closely with conservationists to not only ensure that the animals are well cared for but that visitors get to see their favourite animals without the usual bars and cages spoiling their view.
Allow your little monkeys to swing and act like monkeys and burn off some energy in the Fun Arc and the Ape Around play area or for something a little more relaxing they could try face painting, pottery painting or simply listen to the keepers as they tell you all about the animals in their care.
Need refreshments after all that excitement? Indulge yourself in the themed Café Tsavo, the Arc Restaurant or in the magnificent splendour of the Oakfield Mansion.
Fancy travelling a little further afield?
As part of your family weekend break why not visit the splendid city of Chester. It offers old fashioned charm with an abundance of fine shops, especially the quaint half-timbered shops known as The Rows.
Cheshire, famous for it's delicious cheese also offers stunning countryside views and many attractions such as a stone age burial site called The Bridestones, near Congleton.
The 2008 European Capital of Culture was Liverpool. This vibrant city, famous for the 'Fab Four' offers amazing cultural experiences, The Walker Art Gallery, Tate Liverpool and the World Museum Liverpool to name but a few. Shoppers will not be disappointed either as the Liverpool One development offers a plethora of shops and boutiques.
We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo, you can come too!
