About

Bristol Zoo Gardens have re-opened, subject to Government restrictions. Please check directly on their website and/or social media channels for the latest updates.

Discover over 400 incredible animal species from across the globe at Bristol Zoo Gardens, set within award-winning gardens spanning over 12 acres.

Marvel at the adorable babies including a sloth, a golden lion tamarin, two young gorillas, and a tiny mouse deer fawn among others! Discover wondrous creatures in our newly reopened Bug World, Aquarium, Meerkat House, Bat Walkthrough, Reptile House and the underground viewing areas of Seal and Penguin Coasts.

Kids can run wild in the adventure playground and big and little adventurers alike can climb, clamber and swing through the air in the thrilling aerial ropes course ZooRopia.

Fancy a bite to eat? The Hide restaurant is now open for eating in or takeaway! 

Bristol Zoo Gardens have ensured everyone has a safe and enjoyable visit with an one-way system and social distancing measures. To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, please read the site rules before visiting. Some areas remain closed because it is difficult to maintain social distancing at present in those locations, or because they include multiple high-frequency touch points. A full list of updates is available here
