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:

  • Meerkat Lookout – the outside viewing area is still accessible
  • Lemur Walkthrough – the viewing areas in Monkey Jungle remain accessible
  • Twilight World, Reptile House, Forest of Birds, Bug World, Lemur Walkthrough, Butterfly House
  • Zooropia
  • All playgrounds including Splash
  • Indoor eating areas including the Hide – takeaway only is available at this time from the kiosks
  • 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.
