Built in the 1874, Clifton Down train station is on the Severn Beach Line, serving the affluent village of Clifton, Bristol. The station was once frequented by regular excursion trains heading for nearby Bristol Zoo; however, dwindling numbers in later years led to the station finally removing all staff and running a reduced service from the late-60s onwards. Nonetheless, Clifton has a long relationship with natural history, with the BBC's Natural History Unit, which is responsible for making 25% of the world's wildlife programmes, also on Whiteladies Road. One of the station's disused station buildings has now been bricked up and adorned with bright murals of animals created by local students to promote links with Bristol Zoo, and another of the buildings has since become the Australian-themed Roo Bar. Nowadays, regular stopping services leave the station for Bristol Temple Meads and Severn Beach, taking quarter of an hour and half an hour respectively.
