Whilst exploring this historic city on your Canal Boat Holiday a brilliant day out for the whole family is a visit to Chester Zoo where you can meet the new baby elephants.

These two latest arrivals are two Asian elephants who where born within a few months of one another at Chester Zoo.

The youngest calf arrived on 21st January to parents Sithami and Nayan and was up on its feet within three minutes of being born.
