Bristol Zoo Gardens Trips
Bristol Zoo has a plethora of activities that goes beyond the fabulous animals to make it a wonderful day out. I would recommend going early so you can park more easily and to catch the earlier feeding time of the bats and the gorillas. The talks are entertaining with added little gems of info on the animals. The cafe does do some lovely food and a great cup of tea but does get crowded quickly. However, you can bring your own picnic and there are places to sit undercover or outside. Bring a towel as their is a small area where children can get wet and love too! If you catch the butterfly exhibition at the right time it is magical. A place to visit again and again.
A great way to spend half a day. Zoo was clean and well layed out which made it so pleasing to walk around, no back tracking or missing anything. Food locations provided were lacking, if you don't want to have a cooked meal your only choice is a sandwich hut which seemed to run out of food very fast. It took over an hour to be restocked which was very disappointing. The car park cost and extra £3 which seems a bit crazy when it might as well be tagged onto the price of the zoo tickets themselves. Animal talks were great though and staff were exceptional in all areas! Gorillas and Lions are the largest animals they have. This isn't necessarily a bad thing though. The animals were fantastic in all areas, a big thank you to Bristol Zoo and the staff for all they do 😊
Great experience. Not having visited a zoo in a very long time, I was pleasantly surprised to find a lovely environment for the animals. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Happy animals with knowledgeable keepers who were happy to talk. The site was very clean and I was most impressed with the floral displays. All staff very friendly.
When we parked up it looked like it wad going to be tiny from the drive round the outside but it doesn't feel it inside and there's still lots in there. Unfortunately Gorilla house was closed but we got to see the Seals having an amazing swim and play from the tunnel under their water area and stand right next to a keeper feeding and talking to an older Seal. We went to the Friday night summer event and it was a gorgeous set up with great music. But take your own drinks really as they made a fiver on the drink I bought if not more.
The zoo is well maintained and very big. The layout is a bit confusing though. You do get a map with the tickets, which doesn't help much. But you don't really need to worry about that. There are lots of different animals including a gorilla that was born here. There is a Butterfly forest where kids would be very happy as the butterflies fly around them. Lots of different species there and you can also see larvae and newly hatched butterflies. There is a reptiles section, a Bugs and insects section, a small aquarium and a Penguin & Seals section as well. Don't miss out the animal feed timings.
