Discover over 400 species of exotic and endangered animals from across the globe at Bristol Zoo Gardens, all set within award-winning gardens spanning over 12 acres.

Marvel as the 32-stone gorilla Jock strolls overhead, and say ‘hello’ to majestic lions Sahee and Sonika. Watch the African penguins zoom through the water at Seal and Penguin Coast, and see cheeky meerkats and lemurs scamper around.

Here you’ll discover more than 115 different species of fish, from a wide variety of tropical and temperate, freshwater and marine habitats – red-bellied piranha, mudskippers, epaulette sharks, giant gourami. Our Aquarium includes a new tunnel, where you can view fish swimming overhead. Don’t forget to visit our seahorses at Seal & Penguin Coasts!

Adventure for all the family
Big and little adventurers alike can climb, clamber and swing through the air in our thrilling aerial ropes course, ZooRopia. Travel through the treetops alongside gibbons and gorillas, tackling 17 gravity-defying challenges before flying down the zip wire to the finish. Will ZooRopia make a monkey out of you?

Award-winning gardens
