Become a life member and visit Bristol Zoo Gardens as often as you like… forever.
Life members enjoy all the benefits that standard membership brings as well as a yearly invitation to the annual life members' event, where you’ll be able to explore behind the scenes and meet key members of our conservation team. You’ll also never have to complete an application form again.
By becoming a life member, you’ll be making a significant contribution to conservation, helping to care for the animals in the Zoo as well as protecting endangered species across the globe. As a life member, you will receive:
Fast track FREE entry to Bristol Zoo Gardens during normal opening hours.
Five half-price tickets for family members each year.
