About

A visit to Bristol Zoo Gardens is an adventure into an exciting animal kingdom, all set within 12 acres of beautiful gardens. Get up close to more than 400 species of exotic, endangered and adorable animals from the four corners of the globe, whilst enjoying 12 acres of award-winning gardens.

With nine under cover animal houses, Bristol Zoo is a wonderful, all weather family attraction. You can see the amazing gorilla family in the unique 180 degree view gorilla house, venture into Twilight World to discover animal secrets after sunset and come face-to-face with our incredible reptiles in our Reptile house. Some other Zoo favourites include Seal & Penguin Coast, Monkey Jungle, Asiatic lions, Bug World, Meerkat Lookout and the Aquarium.

Don’t forget to visit Splash, a water-play area with streams, dams and the chance to get your toes wet. The more adventurous can have a go on the aerial ropes course, ZooRopia, and swing alongside some of the Zoo’s most popular animals – gibbons and gorillas – before flying down the zip wire (restrictions and charges apply).

If that’s not enough why not take in one of the daily expert feeding talk and meet invertebrates and reptiles in our daily animal encounters?
