Initially we were a bit taken aback by the entry price for the whole family, but were pleased to hear it covers entry for a whole year, and there's a new museum being built for the Spring so we'll definitely be back. It's a really interesting place, and going under the ship, and being able to walk all around the deck (above and below) was great. My kids loved exploring and going in all the cabins with the different scenes laid out, and spotting all the pretend rats that were about too.

Great zoo to visit, for adults or children. Small enough to see everything in one visit yet enough to see to keep you interested. Beautiful setting in old part of the city. Wide variety of animals - penguins, lions, red pandas, birds, monkeys/apes, wallabies... Covered area for picnic, lots of space to sit and eat. Main problem is it's not so easy to park, the zoo car parking area is very small and it's difficult to find spaces on the streets around (all metered) so you may have to walk.

Just fantastic! Everything you need to know about Bristol is here. Perfect for any age group as there is something for everyone - and it's free! We have been a few times now and find something of interest every time we visit. This time it was the Skeleton exhibition. A collection of human skeletons from AD to BC are displayed in glass cases with descriptions of who they were, where they were found and what caused their demise! Absolutely fascinating - this alone is worth a special visit.
