    Nice place to visit

  • Lovely day out with two young children. Some areas are under redevelopment an are without animals. However the animals present more than make up for any absence. The staff are very friendly professional and informative. Take a picnic if possible as they provide covered seating areas that are private and relaxing. Other activities are available in the gardens that add to the day out but at additional cost. Overall good value for money today 2 adults 2 children £48. Parking only £3.00 for all day which in our case lasted over 5 hrs.

  • Beautiful zoo, amazing experience, loved every second there, so many amazing animals, and they are all active, so you're not just seeing a sleeping animal like in most zoo's. Even saw the lions roar!! Love the walk through experience that allows you to get up close and personal with the animals, at no extra cost. Would love to pay to have one of the experiences next time!

  • Fantastic zoo with a very frequent bus service to the train station and from there an even more frequent service to the airport. The zoo is spacious and feels open, all birds can fly and all the appropriate mammals have the opportunity to swim such as the seals. Only head scratching thing to work out was the weird pricing structure in place at this zoo. Some days are cheap, some are expensive but both the cheap and expensive can get a 33 percent discount for using the bus or bike 🚲. Why not one simple price. Minor issue though because when you work out what price you'll pay its reasonable in any case. Great selection great place to visit.

  • Fabulous zoo, had a lovely afternoon....£3 on site all day parking, though the actual tickets were, I think, rather expensive for what's there (cheaper online, definitely worth checking for discounts etc, and using the refund for taking public transport, park n ride, bike etc, details on the main website). Take snacks and drinks with you, unless you're planning to pay a pretty hefty price tag! The animals were all healthy, bright, and in great condition...A real joy, and my Son loved it! Definitely going to go back when it's warmer, and to buy one of the 'experiences'!

  • Bristol zoo is only a small city zoo but it has a great reputation for conservation work and breeding rare animals. I visited on a 'blue day' which meant my ticket was discounted because it was a quiet time of the year. All the animals looked happy and contented and the gardens were looking good too. The seal and penguin exhibit is wearing well and it doesn't show it's age. Over my life time the zoo has constantly been updating it's cages and this activity continues. It means the animals are kept in the most up to date pens which is great for their welfare. The gorilla family, which are one of the largest animals in the zoo, look great in their island home and we're certainly using all of it. Don't forget Bristol zoo also runs Wild Place an out of town place not far from Cribbs Causeway which caters for some of the larger animals such as wolves and giraffes.
