Chester Zoo is thrilled to have been named one of the world's top zoos. It's the best in the UK, second in Europe and sixth in the world.
“This is the first time we’ve won this award and we’re very, very pleased indeed – particularly as it’s voted for by those working in the travel industry who have been to the zoo, experienced what we have to offer and cast their vote on the back of their visit.
“The zoo is constantly evolving and offering visitors something different to see and experience. "
