Chester Zoo Lantern Festival Has Returned For Christmas

This Christmas, something magical is happening at Chester Zoo

The Lanterns have returned, transforming the zoo into a spectacular wonderland, full of sparkle, illumination and a sprinkling of snow.

Guests will set off on The Great Christmas Expedition and discover exotic illuminated wildlife and animal characters in nine different fantastical worlds; from traditional festive scenes to colourful animal-inspired illuminations.

This year the updated route will take guests on a journey through new worlds that will have their imaginations running wild.

Visitors will be transported to the bottom of the sea in Underwater where they’ll need to dodge the jellyfish and fish before coming face to face with a HUGE octopus!

Guests will then make through way through Tropical Dreams which will be a dramatic centrepiece, complete with new beautiful lanterns. Before they take the Night Sky Adventure and travel through the clouds and stars, under the moonlight.

And remember to keep an eye out for Father Christmas…he could be just around the corner.
