where we are

in the heart of the zoo

Getting to the zoo : From the M56 continue on to the M53 and take junction 12 towards Chester. From there continue to the A41 and follow the brown signs to the car park.  Please don’t follow your sat nav to find the entrance as they’ll direct you to a dead end.

Parking: Main car park at the entrance to the zoo.

It’s around a 15 minute walk from the main entrance (longer if you linger with your favourite animals).
