We advise that you book your education sessions well in advance and recommend at least four hours for your visit - this will allow time to explore the Zoo. If you are bringing a group of 100 or more, then please contact us as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment. Sessions are available between 9.30am and 5pm on weekdays throughout the year.

Free Teacher Planning Visits

If you are a teacher considering bringing a college, school or nursery group to Bristol Zoo, join us for a free planning visit.

Book a free planning visit for up to two members of teaching staff.  In addition, a reduced rate of admission can also be offered to immediate family members (up to three children and one adult) if arranged in advance with our Bookings Team.

To book your visit, complete our online booking form below. Please note we require at least 5 days notice to process a free teacher planning visit request.
