Zoo Updates

Some areas remain closed at Bristol Zoo Gardens. This is because it is impossible to maintain social distancing at present in those locations, or because they include, by their nature, multiple high-frequency touch points.

Closures include:

  • The Hide - The Hide will be closed on Wednesday 16 September to prepare for the reopening of the restaurant for eat in on Thursday.
  • Lemur Walkthrough – the viewing areas in Monkey Jungle remain accessible
  • Twilight World, Forest of Birds, Bug World, Lemur Walkthrough, Butterfly House and Hippo House
  • All playgrounds including Splash
  • Some benches, and interactive displays, are not in use.
  • The Activity Centre remains closed.



We will only reopen these areas when it is deemed safe to do so, and will ensure that all updates are provided on this page - so please check back. 

PLEASE NOTE: Bristol Zoo closes at 5:30pm.
