The Bristol Zoo Gardens span over 12 acres of land and offer over 400 species for your viewing pleasure.
Over the 175 years of its existence, Bristol Zoo has built a reputation of being both an interactive learning experience and an incredibly fun day out for visitors of all ages. The centre.
The zoo hosts a rope attraction which allows visitors of ages 5 and up to swing with the monkeys and learn about their conservation status. Furthermore, the zoo has a wide variety of primates, including gorillas, gibbons, macaques and howler monkeys.
After (or before, or in between) seeing the majestic Asiatic lions, clever red pandas, soaring fruit bats and the adorable prairie dogs, pudus and meerkats, you can have a rest at the Coral Café, where you can enjoy quick snacks as well as full meals.
In the similarly themed Aquarium, visitors can discover over 70 species of fish. Besides animals, the zoo has gardens which are of particular botanical interest:
ancient cedars, formal flower arrangements, and exotic subtropical displays were perfected through the years and change through the seasons.
At Bristol Zoo, visitors are truly submerged in nature and, logically, are often reluctant to leave. For more information, visit the website of Bristol Zoo.
