If you want to venture out a little further, there is plenty do in the City Centre for all ages. If you like animals why not visit Bristol Zoo? It’s the 5th oldest zoo in the world and is home to Asiatic lions, gorillas and penguins.
You could also take a trip to Bristol Science Centre, filled with interactive attractions for hands-on discovery. Walk through a tornado, create your own TV show or see the UK’s first 3D Planetarium. Choosing what to do first will be the hard part.
