DayTrippers are back: Visit Chester Zoo

University of Manchester’s Students’ Union’s are offering students the chance to visit Chester Zoo and more with their DayTrippers project

On Wednesday 26th of October, the Students’ Union activities team are organising the next in the run of DayTrippers. For only £20 a ticket you can visit Chester Zoo.

The trip takes you from campus straight to the zoo. The ticket price includes the coach costs and is open to students, friends, family and children. All at the same cost.

DayTrippers began last year, due to popular demand amongst students for the Students’ Union (SU) to deliver more trips across the UK. Last year they ran two sell-out trips to Alton Towers and Blackpool.

The Chester Zoo trip is intended to tie in with the SU’s Global Week,  as Chester Zoo offers students the chance to see the animals of the world.

Chester Zoo houses over 20,000 animals covering 125 acres of zoological gardens. The Students’ Union has chosen to run the trip as they believe “it’s a great chance for students to visit one of the biggest zoos in the country and meet other students along the way”.

You can follow all things DayTrippers on their Facebook page.

And buy tickets for the Chester Zoo trip here. 

The Students’ Union hopes to make DayTrippers any entirely student led project, so if you would like to get involved you can email [email protected] for more information about how to get involved.
