Visit the animals at Bristol Zoo Gardens


Did you know that Bristol Zoo Gardens is the fifth oldest zoo in the world?

Bristol Zoo Gardens is a numbers game. Nine covered houses. 400 different species. Twelve acres of land. One of the best attractions in Bristol.

As you make your way through the grounds of the zoo, you will meet a family of gorillas, stroll through the tropical Butterfly Forest and become immersed in the Seal and Penguin Coast. 

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 ‘Forest of Birds’, before feeding nectar to colourful parrots at the ‘Feed the Lorikeets’ exhibit.

More adventurous visitors 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.
