Dads go free at Bristol Zoo Gardens this Fathers Day !!! GREAT OFFER

Treat your dad to a great day out at Bristol Zoo Gardens this Father's Day - for free!

On Sunday June 15, dads can visit the zoo for free with a full-paying child or adult.

Why not visit the Zoo's 450 different animal species - including some very special dads. You could say hello to Jock, the 150kg western lowland gorilla, father to Komale the cheeky baby gorilla and his mischievious brother Namoki.

Or, for dads who have everything, why not buy a unique Father's Day gift from Bristol Zoo by adopting him his favourite animal? Zoo annual membership is another idea for a gift that lasts a whole year, so he can visit whenever he likes - as well as supporting the Zoo's charitable conservation work. The adventurous dad could even become a 'Keeper for the Day' and get a behind the scenes experience of the working life of the zoo.

Alternatively, take your dad out for a sumptuous Father's Day lunch at the Clifton Pavilion. For further details, or to make your reservation, please call 0117 923 8332 or email [email protected]bristolzoo.org

For more details about visiting the visit Bristol Zoo Gardens' this Father's Day, visit the website at bristolzoo.org.uk or phone 0117 974 7300.

If thats a picture of your dad he looks well HARD:p

Bristol Zoo is okay but it's not a patch on Paignton Zoo (both are of equal distance to me) and we always end up going to the latter. Any "Dads Go Free" for Paignton?

Bristol Zoo & Paignton Zoo are good but what about CRICKET ST THOMAS!

Cricket St Thomas is getting better,especially now Mr Blobby has gone.
We went last year FREE with clubcard tokens,It was great probably not as many animals as the zoo's though.

I'll be in bristol at the weekend, but one of poorest , dirtiest, scruffest zoos i have ever been to!
everyone remembers the polar bears for losing it - walking 2 steps foward, 2 back up and down- even now!
use the kellogs tokens to good use and goto Painton where at lease they have a little more room !

LOL!

good find!

Just up the road from me!

Other good thing about BZ!

Parking is £1 per day!!!!

Haven't been to Bristol Zoo since I was a kid!

My local Zoo is Marwell, which is great!

I have a money saving tip for anyone who is after a season ticket to their local zoo. Often zoo's have reciprocal agreements with other zoos, meaning you can buy a season ticket at your local zoo and use it in a number of other zoo's.

For example, Marwell currently charge £48.00 for an annual pass. However, Paignton Zoo only charge £38.90 for an annual pass, which is also recognised by Marwell! That's a saving of almost £10 per adult!

It's worth checking if your local zoo has reciprocal arrangeents with other zoos, which may work out cheaper.

my favourite zoos/parks are
longleat - watching people's cars being wrecked by the monkeys..lol!
marwell - yo can get close to alot of less dangerous animals
cotsworld
paington
bristol -still good tho

I went to bristol zoo recently, i was surprised how well it was kept, wasnt scruffy at all? Rather modern in fact. I think a lot of money has been spent updating it. The gardens and flowers are superb and a lot better than when I last went some years back. Nothing better than walking through them with an ice cream to visit the monkeys. Shows are rather well done too, found them to be most educational. Its not the biggest zoo in the world but i think they have a good variety and have done it rather well considering the space.

Though stay clear of the creepy crawlies section, the bird eating spiders in particular. Yuk! You can even sit on a perspex loo and see a live black widow spider dangling between your legs. (Make of that what you will)

That old argument. Endangered species animal breeding programs, inner city education about animals/environment, charitable animal causes vs the zoo haters. The battle continues.....:viking:

Endangered species/breeding programs ARE an excuse for Zoo's to continue to exist.
A high proportion of animals in zoos are not endangered.
Most animals show signs of mental torture.
Zoo's are around to make money..........not for the love/conservation of animals.

I'm no tree hugger, far from it, but I could never visit a zoo.
