Bristol Zoo Gardens details...

Over 400 species of exotic and endangered animals from across the globe! Enjoy a family day out to remember at Bristol Zoo Gardens, set within award-winning gardens covering over 12 acres.

Visitors can venture into an amazing animal kingdom, meeting famous faces as well as unusual creatures that you never knew existed. So take the kids to marvel at a 32-stone gorilla as he strolls overhead and greet Sahee and Sonika, the Zoo’s majestic lions. Seal and Penguin Coast is the place to watch African penguins zoom through the water. Watch the cheeky meerkats and lemurs as they scamper around.

In addition, there are plenty of new arrivals to see, such as the Goodfellow’s tree kangaroo joey and a young spider monkey. Can you spot the new red panda, one-year-old Shifumi?

Adventurers, big and little, can climb, clamber and swing through the air as they tackle the thrilling aerial ropes course ZooRopia (find opening times, charges and restrictions on the zoo’s website). Finally, don’t go home without exploring the award-winning botanical gardens, home to over 100,000 beautiful, rare and extraordinary plants from around the world.
