Chester Zoo

The Square, our brand-new events venue is located at the heart of the zoo and opens on 1 May 2023.

Chester Zoo is synonymous with unforgettable memories. For over ninety years, we’ve been inspiring visitors by bringing them closer to the wonder of the natural world through our zoo, home to some of the world’s most endangered animals.

We’re a not-for-profit charity which means the entire cost of your event will be used to support our zoo and the important work our conservationists do to prevent extinction.

Events at Chester Zoo take place in one of our two stunning venues; The Oakfield or The Square. Both venues are an important piece of the zoo’s history and have been lovingly restored to combine the best of the past with the best of the present.
