Bug World

Due to coronavirus, some areas are currently closed. Please check our updates page ahead of your visit.

Enter Bristol Zoo’s Bug World and visit some of the strangest and most interesting characters in the invertebrate world – including insects, spiders, honeybees, snails, crabs, jellyfish and corals.

Start your journey in the dusky forest where you’ll see giant stick insects, hairy tarantulas and beautifully-coloured beetles. Follow the path through the marine world and find out about upside down jellyfish, beautiful starfish and brightly coloured coral.

Next, visit the hot and dry desert zone, home to creatures such as magnificent spiders and scorpions.

Finally, have a closer look at our honeybees and at our conservation breeding rooms, where we are working hard to help safeguard the future of critically endangered species such as the Desertas Wolf Spider, the Lord Howe Island stick insect and four species of Partula snails.
