WHATS ON AT THE ZOO.......
Oakfield House is a Victorian mansion set in 125 acres of award winning gardens, very much at the heart of the zoo... in all ways.
Originally built by the Mayor of Chester just over 100 years ago, Oakfield House was then bought by grocer George Mottershead in the early 1930s. With love, passion and a lot of determination, he turned it and the surrounding gardens into one of the world’s most beautiful and highly acclaimed zoos.
The house and zoo can offer you a unique, elegant and extraordinary setting for your big day and will create lasting memories for you and your guests to talk about for years to come.
With exclusive use of the house for both ceremony and reception; our zoo will also be accessible to day guests, providing a wonderful and truly unique backdrop to your wedding photos.
We are able to accommodate weddings with up to 140 evening guests but are just as happy to host smaller, more intimate events. Our dedicated team will ensure that your day is tailor made to be everything you could hope for and more.
As we are a charity, all proceeds from your wedding will help us to look after our animals here at Chester Zoo and with our outreach projects across the world.
