Wow, what a fab day out. Such a big place to explore and enjoy. Loved every second, just wish all the new bits were open in January.... Guess we'll have to come back, what a shame! - Hannah
We had a fantastic day out at Chester Zoo. Having never been before we didn't know what to expect, but it was worth traveling down from Cumbria. We stayed in a local hotel. Seeing the baby elephant was our highlight. We weren't keen on the Bats, but it was an experience feeling them brushing past your head. The food in the cafe was also nice. - Keiran
