Chester Zoo Combination Ticket


Islands at Chester Zoo is now open! Explore on foot or from a unique perspective on the Lazy River Boat!

With over 11,000 wild and wonderful animals including some of the most exotic and endangered species in the world it is a great day out for all the family.

Buy your combination zoo ticket from any staffed Merseyrail station and make great savings – it won’t cost you a wing and a leg!


Combination Ticket Prices

The total price of your combination ticket will vary depending on the cost of your train journey. Below are the prices for zoo entry and bus transfer from the station, which your train ticket cost will be added to, to calculate the total combination ticket price.

You will always be sold the best value Merseyrail ticket for your return journey. For example, if you are travelling from West Kirby to Chester after 9.30am we will add a £5 Merseyrail Day Saver because it is cheaper than an Anytime Return ticket (£6.30). 

Ticket Zoo entry & bus combination  Rail 
Adult  £23.90 Best Merseyrail return ticket
Senior  £20 Best Merseyrail return ticket
Child (5-15)  £20 Best Merseyrail return ticket
Child (3-4)  £18 (Bus travel is free) FREE
Infant (2 & under)  FREE FREE

Merseyrail All Zone Day Saver costs just £5 for adults and £2.50 for young people (5-18yrs) and can be used from 9.30am for unlimited travel on the Merseyrail network.

So the cost for unlimited rail travel, return bus travel between Chester station and the zoo and entrance to the zoo would be £28.90 for an adult (£5 + £23.90) and £22.50 for a child aged 5 - 15 (£2.50 + £20).

Merseyrail Family Ticket can be used for up to 2 adults and 3 children and costs just £10! The ticket is valid from 9.30am and can be used throughout the day for unlimited travel on the Merseyrail network and Northern, Wirral and City line trains within the Merseytravel boundaries.

Chester Zoo is open every day from 10am (excluding Christmas Day and Boxing Day). Last admission times vary according to the season. For more travel information visit your nearest Merseyrail booking office and visit the Chester Zoo website here to plan your day at the zoo.
