BRISTOL WALK OF FAME
The Bristol Walk of Fame at Bristol Zoo celebrates the city’s most renowned people, places and icons from across the historic, creative, sporting and wildlife spectrum. The Bristol Walk of Fame is a trail of specially-designed plaques within the grounds of the Zoo, with each plaque bearing the names of famous inductees.
A list of 80 candidates was compiled following an appeal for suggestions from the public. This list was as varied as it was interesting and included the likes of Banksy, Massive Attack, Justin Lee Collins, Tony Robinson and the Wurzels. The public voted for their 20 favourites over the space of 30 days via Local Press, Radio and on the Zoo’s website. Over 2,000 voters took part and after a tightly fought contest, the 39 famous people, places and icons were inducted alongside 10 honorary inductees.
