Parties can be hosted within one of our two venues onsite. The more formal option is our 1920's building - The Clifton Pavilion or you can opt for The Hide, our new cafe restaurant that offers an immersive, animal-themed experience for guests.

Where better to host your summer party than the Clifton Pavilion, Bristol Zoo Gardens.  The Garden Room offers a flexible layout with plenty of space for your guests, entertainment and catering too.  Guests can enjoy a drink on the terrace / courtyard followed by a stroll around the gardens which your guests can enjoy with our compliments until 7.30pm. It’s then back to the Garden Room to enjoy a BBQ served on the terrace or buffet in the Garden Room with dancing until midnight. View brochure >
