Bristol Zoo Gardens
A visit to Bristol Zoo Gardens is an adventure into an exciting animal kingdom, all set within 12 acres of beautiful gardens. Visitors will come face to face with over 400 species of exotic, endangered and adorable animals from the four corners of the globe.
Visitors to Bristol Zoo can see the family of gorillas, including new gorilla baby, Kukeña (born September 2011), 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 Aquarium.
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 (restrictions and charges apply).
If that’s not enough why not take in one of the daily animal shows, join an expert talk, or pit yourself against the best of the animal world with the popular Zoolympics trail?
During the summer months, the Zoo also becomes a fantastic backdrop for music and theatre events.
