If you go down to the zoo today you’re sure of a big surprise, or to be more accurate – if you go down to the zoo any time between now and the 3rd September, you and your own little monsters are sure of 10 big surprises, because Bristol Zoo has been invaded by dinosaurs!
Bristol Zoo’s a great day out any time; with one of the best collections in the country, and world class research and breeding facilities, this zoo is a fantastic place to visit to see rare, stunning creatures, to learn, and all in beautiful gardens.
There’s always a good range of talks on, providing a great opportunity to find out more from the keepers who look after the animals day to day. There’s also a brilliant range of environments to explore, from the Reptile House and Twilight World, to Gorilla Island and the Coastal area – home to the very characterful seals and penguins.
There’s a wonderful range of activities for all, and whatever their age, the kids won’t be disappointed, with a selection of activity centres, play areas, and even a high ropes course in the form of the ZooRopia area.
Whether you choose to bring a picnic, or come less prepared, there’s a good range of lunch options catering for all tastes, and with covered, seated areas, or lovely lawns, if you’re blessed with sun.
And for the next few weeks, dotted around the zoo gardens are 10 magnificent life-sized prehistoric visitors. These wonderful animated models surround the DINOMANIA DINOHUB; a temporary exhibit offering a whole host of interactive features and games to transport you back millions of years. Get up close and personal (and occasionally a little wet!) with these great beasts.
For a full day out Bristol Zoo is incredible value, and with the added benefit of knowing that you’re contributing to a brilliant cause. Find out more at www.bristolzoo.org.uk/
