Bristol Zoo and Garden
Situated 14 miles (23km) from central Bath, children will love spending a fun-filled day at the Bristol Zoo and Garden, where over 450 species of animals can be found. Most of the exhibits are undercover, making this the perfect destination for family outings come rain or shine. Featuring themed habitat areas, kids will be amazed by Gorilla Island and the Seal and Penguin Coast, where an underwater viewing area makes things a little more exciting. There is also Monkey World, a reptile house, aquariums, exotic birds and an adventure course (ZooRopia) for children of any age to let of some excess energy. The zoo also features a café, gift shop and picnic areas. There is so much to see at Bristol Zoo that a full day's visit is strongly recommended.
