Advantages: So much to see and do!
As I have lived near Chester Zoo all my life and my family are very animal loving people, I have been there countless times in my life. I love the place and I have a lot of cherished memories from there. I have watched the place grow to what it is now.
When I used to visit as a child a lot of the animals that are there now weren't there then. The mount of species they have gained is incredible. The enclosures have also expanded over the years giving the animals much more space which also means more space to view them. The other thing I have noticed a difference in is the amount of activities for children has increased. The last time I went was last month with my boyfriend and even he found the kiddies things amusing! The layout of the zoo has changed to a certain extent, a lot of the walkways have been decorated to fit the area of the world that the animals in those enclosures have come from. It makes the place feel well thought out.
The admission price is shocking at £15.40 for an adult and £11.50 for a child. However, when you think of the bills the zoo must have to pay and their ongoing work to save endangered species, it kind of makes it easier to hand over that money. Food is also very expensive but a good idea is to take your own food and have a picnic!
If you haven't visited Chester Zoo, its about time you did! The place is teeming with animals, plants and activities. I love the place and wish I could afford to go more often! The kids will love it and so will you!
Summary: Top notch day out, make sure you're wearing comfy shoes!
