Chester Zoo Lanterns

This Christmas, Chester Zoo is turning into a magical festive wonderland, full of sparkle, illumination and a sprinkling of snow!

Kick-start your Christmas countdown at Chester Zoo and give your family precious memories they’ll never forget. Explore spectacular scenes and experience the zoo in a different (and much more twinkly) light.

There will be new fantastical and colourful worlds, full of animal-inspired illuminations and traditional festive scenes that will leave you with a warm-fuzzy feeling inside.

A colourful oversized Butterfly Garden, Nordic markets, stunning Christmas trees and a magical ice kingdom all come together with our favourite animal lanterns from Christmases gone by.
