What The Price Includes

  • Entry to Chester Zoo
  • A visit to Chester for Christmas shopping
  • One night's bed and English breakfast accommodation in a three-star standard hotel in the North West area
  • Coach travel throughout
  • The services of a friendly Tour Manager

Single rooms are available for a supplement

Itinerary

Day One

We leave the local area by coach to travel to Chester where you can explore the famous medieval galleried tiers of shops known as the Rows, visit Chester Cathedral and perhaps take a wintry stroll around the city walls. 

Enjoy an early evening dinner (payable locally) before continuing to your overnight hotel.

Day Two

After breakfast we'll head to Chester Zoo for your chance to see the residents made famous by Channel 4's unforgettable series.

Spanning 125 acres of award-winning gardens, and home to over 21,000 animals from nearly 500 species, Chester Zoo has been rated the best zoo in the UK and the third best in the world by visitors. Its pioneering conservation breeding work helps secure the future of many exotic and endangered species.

Discover the critically endangered Onagers (the rarest horse species in the world), Eastern black rhinos, carnivorous plants and prehistoric looking birds, and look out for the beautiful Jaguars, including Goshi the black panther.

In the mid-afternoon we'll head home, arriving back at your original pick-up point in the mid-late evening.
