Chester Zoo Remains Open Despite Stay At Home Order

Chester Zoo has released a statement stating that the outdoor parts of the popular wildlife park are allowed to remain open in the current circumstances, although families must book in advance.

Chester Zoo has updated its website and noted that all of its walk-through experiences and indoor animal houses have closed to keep within the government guidelines for Chester.

The Zoo has also requested that families who are booking during holiday periods and other peak times to book online and have stated they are unable to amend ticket bookings after they have been purchased.

Chester, along with Warrington and the remainder of Cheshire was moved from Tier 2 to Tier 3 on 26th December 2020, and within a week were moved to Tier 4.

Tier 4 requires the closure of several indoor venues, including non-essential shops, hospitality, hotels, leisure centres, entertainment venues and personal care businesses.

The indoor attractions at outdoor venues have also been forced to close under these same rules, which is why indoor animal houses at Chester Zoo have closed and only takeaway food will be provided.

Essential businesses are allowed to stay open as they were in November 2020, which includes facilities that provide distribution and storage in Chester, as well as food shops, banks and medical facilities.

Chester Zoo bosses have also requested that people travel to Chester Zoo only from within Cheshire itself, and have offered to transfer bookings for people living outside of the local area to another date up until the 30th April.
