View animals from around the world in recreated natural settings at Bristol Zoo Gardens, where conservation and education meet. The zoo is also the world's oldest provincial zoo, having opened its gates in 1836. The "Twilight Zone," showcasing unusual species, was the first of its kind. Reptiles lounge in their reptile house, birds squawk in the aviaries, and gorillas, tamarinds, and marmosets reside on the islands, where the surrounding waters are alive with feathered creatures. Indoor and outdoor exhibits make a visit worthwhile in all weather conditions.

  • Went to an outdoor film screening. Fantastic atmosphere. You could book deckchairs or like us take your own. Every one had picnics and had a good view. The screen was large and the picture colour was very good as was the sound. A very different zoo experience.
  • Be mindful it is a zoo within the urban area. Careful parking. Lovely place. Good exhibits. Fair animal selection and interaction. Liked the aquarium and water exhibits. Only a full day out if you go round gently.
