Attraction Information

A visit to Bristol Zoo Gardens is an adventure into an exciting animal kingdom, all set within 12 acres of beautiful grounds and award-winning gardens.

Get up close to over 400 exotic and endangered species from all over the world. Venture through the tropics in the Butterfly Forest or immerse yourself in the Seal and Penguin coast. Visit roaring Asiatic lions or why don’t you do a meet and greet experience and meet park favourites such as gorillas and meerkats. Channel your inner zookeeper and help with feeds, mucking out and make lifelong animal friends.

After all that monkeying around, why not visit some of the other great attractions onsite? Swing in the trees like your animal friends on the high ropes course at Zooropia or get your toes wet at the water play area; Splash. There’s even an adventure playground too, just to top the day off! Be sure to take a break from exploring and stop by the Hide restaurant for feeding time at the zoo.

Wonderful day out! 5 out of 5 stars

I visited Bristol Zoo and had a great day. Loads of animals to see, delicious food on offer. Highlight was the lions!


Its a nice morning. 2 out of 5 stars

We visited a few months ago my girls enjoyed it, (2)(5) they liked seeing the animals. We went earlier morning with some friends who live in Bristol that warned us it can get busy at weekends and parking is tight and your best to get their early. We where their till lunchtime and and when we left the car park was full. But yeah a nice good full morning spent there, we would go back.
