Bristol Zoo Gardens
Loading recommendation %...
As the 5th oldest zoo on the planet, the property is well maintained as a garden and the zoo features more than 400 different animal species. Certainly a top attraction in Bristol.
Families and those who appreciate wildlife may enjoy a day on the grounds, be aware that there are few of the traditional large animals you might expect to see at a zoo of this size. Lions and gorillas, but no elephants or giraffes, for example.
Planning your trip
The zoo and gardens are located near the Clifton area of Bristol, if you have enough energy left over you can enjoy a quick meal or peruse the shops and Georgian architecture. Be certain not to stay too late, Bristol isn't as welcoming by night.
When you should go
The zoo is open throughout the year, with spring and summer being most favorable as there is plenty to enjoy outdoors. England's school seasons are split into terms and do not feature the same extended summer break that students in enjoy in the US, however half-term and between term breaks are plentiful and it may be hard to time your visit to avoid school groups.
What else you might need
Admission to the zoo may be arranged in advance, including tickets for adults, children, and complimentary entry for the little ones under 2.
