Education Visits to the Zoo

We are delighted to be able to welcome school groups back to Bristol Zoo Gardens.

We are now taking school group bookings for any dates as long as they’re in term time.

At present, we can't offer our usual sessions, but we are working on new resources to enhance your visit with us.

If you are keen to visit with your class, please register using the booking enquiry below, email us at edubookings@bristolzoo.org.uk or call us on 0117 428 5300.

In order to ensure that everyone has the space to enjoy Bristol Zoo safely, we have had to change our booking processes for school groups. 

  • At present, arrival slots from 11.00 onwards are available for schools (you're welcome to stay until we close).
  • We'll need to ask for payment at the time of booking by payment card and won't be able to issue refunds for those who don't come on the day.
  • If any of your group are Members, and therefore enjoy free entry, they will need to bring proof of Membership on the day.
  • We understand that schools will have their own social bubbles, usually formed around school year groups. In order to ensure that everyone has the space to enjoy Bristol Zoo safely, we ask that you split into groups of no more than eight when you are going round the Zoo. We ask that you keep to these bubbles and social distance from other visitors during your visit.
