Ready to Join?

Hi everyone,

I am pleased to announce our second social - a trip to Chester zoo!

Please join us for an amazing adventure in one of the best zoos in England. Come and meet all those unknown species originating from the most distant parts of the world and take part in extra attractions like Tsavo bird feed, penguin chat or lion talk. Ever wanted to take a picture with a red panda or go to a Jaguar coffee house? Here is your chance!

Meeting point and transport:

1. 09:50 am at Manchester Victoria station from where we will take the train to Chester at 10.07am from platform 4. There are trains running from other stations too, so you are welcome to go from there if it's easier. In Chester, we will take bus X1 gold going directly from Chester Railway station (Stop S6) to Zoo main entrance.

2. People can use their own transport (such as car) to arrive at the zoo - the estimated entrance time for us will be 12pm.

During the day:

We are planning to start the tour around 12pm at the main gate (zoo closes at 4.30pm, so we will have plenty of time to see everything). There are some food and drink places inside where we can stop and have a lunch.


Protected content depending on whether you pay at the gate or online plus 4.40£ for the bus and 13.40£ for the train.


PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP IF YOU ARE SURE YOU CAN MAKE IT. If your plans change and you cannot attend, then cancel your attendance – thank you!

I hope to see you all there!
