Win a Family Pass and Shop Voucher For Bristol Zoo Gardens

While Bristol Zoo Gardens may be closed for the moment, we know that all the animals are busy having fun, cared for by their keepers.

From gorillas and penguins to lemurs and meerkats, the Zoo is home to over 400 exotic and endangered species from around the world, all set within 12 acres of award-winning gardens.

So when we’re all back to normal again, go on an adventure into an amazing animal kingdom.

Meet your favourite creatures face to face with spectacular immersive experiences. Marvel at a 32-stone gorilla strolling overhead in our glass-floored gorilla house, crawl through a tunnel to pop up among our cheeky meerkat mob, or journey underwater to watch seals and penguins zoom around you.

There’s also nine animal houses for a great day out come rain or shine. Go nocturnal in Twilight World, or meet the Zoo’s slithery, scaled inhabitants in our Reptile House! Other highlights include Monkey Jungle, the Aquarium, Bug World, the Forest of Birds and a dazzling Butterfly House.

Adventurers can also take on the thrilling aerial ropes course ZooRopia (additional charge applies), and run wild in the adventure playground.

Bristol Zoo Gardens will be bringing you lots of animal fun online while we’re all stuck indoors – check out the latest news at bristolzoo.org.uk and on social media.
