Bristol Zoological Society

Journey into an amazing animal kingdom at Bristol Zoo Gardens, set within award-winning gardens spanning over 12 acres.

Discover over 400 species of exotic, endangered animals from across the world, from famous faces like Jock, the gorilla, to some unusual creatures you never knew existed!

Look out for new Zoo babies like our Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo joey, Kiri, who likes to pop his head out of mum’s pouch. Watch young spider monkey Elli swing about and pay a visit to our recently-hatched keas. Plus, help us welcome our new arrival, one-year-old red panda Shifumi.

Dive into a world of ocean animals with our brick sculpture trail, NEW for summer 2020. Spot over 50 BRICKLIVE sculptures made with over half a million toy bricks. Marvel at our impressive orcas – a mother and her baby – which took 20 people 550 hours to build, using 223,259 bricks! Discover fascinating species from across the world’s oceans and try to guess how many bricks are in each model. From the winding tentacles of the giant octopus to the adorable baby turtles, there’s plenty to spot on your seafaring adventure around the Zoo!
