For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by animals. My best ever Christmas present as a child was a toy zoo made by my Dad when I was about four or five years old. It had fences cut from surplus office wire trays, a couple of pools (one for polar bears, the other for penguins...

Before I begin, I would firstly like to apologise to readers for the length of this review. Due to the conservation efforts of Chester Zoo, I wanted to give as much information as I possibly could on the zoo as a tourist attraction, but more importantly, on the vital work that it does. Therefore...

*Placing travel reviews at the top as it's summer holidays - hope this is helpful.* Being the mum of a lively five-year-old who is animal-obsessed, I’ve been to Chester Zoo more than most.

From the outset of this review, I feel I need to state that I am not the greatest advocate for zoos; believing strongly that the use of animals for human entertainment is wrong depriving an animal of its natural habitat. A zoo that only uses animals as display to amuse and entertain humans is...

Having been a fan of wildlife for many years, Chester zoo has always been one of my favourite tourist spots, being reasonably local to me.

Chester Zoo is fabulous! I went years ago when I was a little girl but have never got round to going back until my birthday last week - who says you have to grow old gracefully?! It was a little cold when we went, so we were a bit worried that all the animals would be hidden away, but they have...
