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. Visitors will come face to face with over 400 species of exotic, endangered and adorable animals from the four corners of the globe.

The new Gorilla Island house is a state of the art gorilla enclosure, boasting impressive features such as a new atrium style glass entrance, allowing guests a 180 degree view of the family of gorillas walking above!

Visitors to Bristol Zoo can say hello to the family of gorillas, stroll through the tropical Butterfly Forest or become immersed in the impressive Seal and Penguin Coast.

Some other Zoo favourites include Monkey Jungle, Reptile house, Asiatic lions, Bug World, Twilight World, and the recently renovated Aquarium. Don't forget to visit Explorers' Creek which has three exciting areas. The first is Splash: a water-play area with streams, dams and the chance to get your toes wet. Next, follow in the footsteps of jungle explorers as you enter the Forest of Birds, before feeding nectar to colourful parrots at the Feed the Lorikeets exhibit (small charge applies for nectar).
