I am so sorry I have been a little quiet on the blog this week, Hubby has been home from work so we have been enjoying some family time together and making the most of the nice weather!
Today we visited Bristol Zoo!
Apart from a few showers of rain the weather was lovely and we had a fantastic day, There was so much to do including animal encounters and animal talks, park areas, a turtle maze and of course looking at all the animals + lots more!
Bristol Zoo have lots of different themed zones and building including the Reptile house, Aquarium, Gorilla island, Twilight zone, Butterfly forest, Zona Brazil, Seal and penguin coasts and Bug world.
Here are some pictures from our visit today...
They also had some fantastic pretend animals you could climb inside or sit on to take a photo and large boards that you popped your head through for pictures which James loved!
Some of the enclosures also include special tunnels with a bubble at the end so you can crawl through the tunnel and pop your head up into the bubble and it feels like your in the enclosure with the animals! This was a big hit with James as he could get some close up looks at the animals. He also loved the tunnels under the water which meant you could see all the seals, penguins and fish swimming over head!
We spent the whole day at Bristol Zoo and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
As you can see from this map there is so much to do at Bristol Zoo.

There is something to entertain everyone of all ages and at the end of our visit we popped into the gift shop some of the items did seem quite expensive however they were REALLY cute and there was so much on offer from cuddle toys, arts and crafts to sweets!
We finished off our visit with ice cream and smiles all round.
Bristol zoo is more than just a zoo. We are the Bristol Zoological Society – a conservation and education charity.
