About Us

Selected dates 22 November to 23 December

This Christmas, something magical is happening at Chester Zoo as their enchanting festive event, The Lanterns, returns for 2019.  The zoo will be transformed into a spectacular wonderland, full of sparkle, illumination and a sprinkling of snow! 

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.
