Bristol Zoo Gardens

Bristol Zoo Gardens Review

Alongside the leafy expanse of Clifton Down is one of the country's most famous zoos. More than 400 animal species live in 12 acres of gardens; the Seal and Penguin coasts, with underwater viewing, are rival attractions for Gorilla Island, Bug World, and Twilight World. Take Bus 8 or 9 from Temple Meads Station or the city center.
