I’ve been thinking of going to Chester Zoo for a while now. It’s about an hour from Manchester by car – provided you dont get lost on the way. The zoo has been voted the best place of attraction in England (2006). The endangered lion from Asia can be found there as well as hippos, elephants monkeys, apes, invertebrates, parrots and other birds and fishes. The admission fee is about £13 (adult) but i think it’s all worth it because the sight is just awesome.
