Bristol Zoo’s Summer Ocean Sculpture Trail

Whale sculpture at Bristol Zoo

Bristol Zoo have now reopened their doors – just in time for the summer holidays!

Pip and I were very excited to head back this week. It was lovely to see the animals and beautiful gardens of Bristol Zoo again. I purchased an annual membership shortly after Pip was born, so we were going regularly and have missed our visits during lockdown.

Prior to our visit I had heard that some interesting new creatures had arrived at Bristol Zoo, over 50 in fact and all made from half a million toy bricks!

Bristol Zoo’s ocean sculpture trail will be there to enjoy throughout the summer. It’s been great timing for us, as we’ve had a bit of an ocean theme at home recently, we’ve been exploring some sea creature crafts and reading The Rainbow Fish, so it was lovely to show Pip all these fantastic sea creature models.

There are some large sea creatures to discover and some little ones too, you have to keep your eyes peeled as you find your way through the zoo gardens.

A one-way route around the zoo has been created to ensure everyone has a safe visit, with plenty of sinks dotted around for hand washing too.

Some areas are closed off to maximise social distancing safety, but you can still see most of the animals and have the added enjoyment of spotting all these magnificent ocean sculptures.

Bristol Zoo is a great place to take the kids over the summer holidays and always provides a fun and educational family day out. If you’re considering a visit then check out the Bristol Zoo website for current rules regarding social distancing, to prebook your tickets and confirm your arrival time.

We’re looking forward to heading back again next week to spot the sculptures that we missed this time. Can’t wait!
