Kick-start your Christmas countdown at Chester Zoo and explore a magical festive wonderland, full of sparkle, illumination and a sprinkling of snow! Give your family precious memories they’ll never forget; encounter new fantastical and colourful worlds, full of animal-inspired illuminations and traditional festive scenes that will leave you with a warm-fuzzy-feeling inside.
Set off on The Great Christmas Expedition to discover exotic illuminated wildlife and animal characters in nine different fantastical worlds; each one different to the last – from traditional festive scenes to colourful animal-inspired illuminations. This year the updated route will take you on a journey through new worlds that will have your imagination running wild.
You’ll be transported to the bottom of the sea in Underwater where you’ll need to dodge the jellyfish and fish before coming face to face with a HUGE octopus! Then make your way through Tropical Dreams which will be a dramatic centrepiece, complete with new beautiful lanterns. Then suspend belief as you take the Night Sky Adventure and travel through the clouds and stars, under the moonlight.
Fill up on tasty festive food in The Oakfield, finishing off the Christmas-card perfect scene. And remember…keep an eye out for Father Christmas on his sleigh. He could be just around the corner!
