Bristol Zoo is not known to house prayer rooms within its premises. Although Muslim visitors requiring prayer facilities will not find it at the zoo they will be able to make use of the facilities offered at one of the many mosques in the city of Bristol. They could also ask the staff at the zoo to direct them to a clean and quiet area, where they can offer their prayer if necessary.
Bristol Zoo houses a number of food outlets within its premises. Whilst Coral Restaurant is open daily, the other outlets around the zoo open depending on weather and the number of visitors. Muslim visitors will not be able to find Halal certified cuisine at any of these outlets. They will therefore either have to choose suitable vegetarian or seafood dishes at one of these establishments, or dine at one of the Halal restaurants in the city.
