This short guide is an excerpt from Cheap Attraction Breaks And Short Stays At Theme Parks: The Ultimate Guide.
Undoubtedly the UK’s number one wildlife attraction and also one of the world’s top zoos, famous Chester Zoo doesn’t have any on-site accommodation. So either book your tickets online – note that prices change according to the season and day of the week; it’s sometimes half the price if you go midweek – and look for a close hotel. Or, alternatively, SuperBreak again found us a bargain family deal of 4 tickets and a one night stay at nearby Days Hotel Chester for £110.

What other families have said
Got tickets and just need to find your own family friendly accommodation?
If you’re looking for a hotel to go with your Chester Zoo tickets, right now we like trivago for the best deals. It’s the biggest hotel search site in the world and has good coverage of the UK (as well as hotels abroad). For a family friendly budget stay, don’t forget to check Premier Inn and Travelodge. As a general rule with hotels, book early for the cheapest price. If you’ve left it late, try LateRooms.
Need to buy train tickets?
Our top choice for UK train tickets is Virgin Trains – they search the whole rail network, not just Virgin routes. What’s more, they don’t add booking fees or charge you for using your credit card. Also worth a look is Trainline. They buy up seat allocations in bulk, meaning they can sometimes pass on better discounts than rivals.
Need to buy coach or bus tickets?
If you’re travelling by bus, these days National Express really makes an effort to be family friendly. With booster seats, wifi, air con and power sockets for tablets – as well as bargain prices when compared to train – they’re worth a look. With their £8 Family Coachcard kids go free.
