With 8,000 animals, in 110 acres of award-winning zoological gardens and over 1.4 million visitors every year, Chester Zoo is one of the world’s top zoos, and the UK’s number one wildlife attraction. A key player in many conservation projects both at home and abroad, the Zoo makes a wonderful day out for both adults and children alike. The zoo is open every day of the year except Christmas Day and Boxing Day, but opening times do vary according to the season, so it’s always worth checking before you set off.  Chester Zoo is just 15 minutes drive from Inglewood Manor.
