Bristol Zoo Gardens is a public Zoo and registered conservation education charity. Our historic, 12-acre site in Clifton is home to over 400 animal species from around the world, as well as beautiful botanic gardens which offer a range of location opportunities for filming.
We are open to the public 364 days a year, and our visitors are entitled to experience the entire Zoo with a minimum of distraction. Permission to film or photograph at the Zoo is granted subject to certain conditions and we consider each location request on an individual basis.
Location fees are set depending upon a variety of factors, such as the size of the crew and the length of time on site, the nature and purpose of the project, its potential promotional value to the Zoo, the potential disruption to the Zoo and the extent to which the Zoo is required to support the project.
