Practical Learning Activities

You are here

Practical Learning Activities are bespoke courses offering unique learning opportunities within the zoo.

Why not extend your zoo visit and let us create a Practical Learning Activity just for you. Learning Activities are available for schools and groups of all ages and abilities, designed to suit your needs and requirements and provide fantastic enrichment for children, teenagers and adults.

Practical Learning Activities are popular with a variety of groups and can be offered for 1 day or as a course over a number of weeks. Your Wildlife Learning experience will be supported by one of our expert Education Officers and can include classroom time in our state of the art Education Academy combined with practical husbandry tasks in the zoo. Our experienced staff are equipped to support all types of groups including individuals with additional needs, disabilities or challenging behaviour.

Please contact us on 01253 830805 or e-mail zoo.school@blackpoolzoo.org.uk to discuss how a Bespoke Learning Programme could work for you.

Visitor numbers will be limited each day and we advise all visitors to book online to guarantee entry. 
Please ensure you choose the correct date as tickets are non-refundable and dates can not be changed.

Groups of more than 6 visitors will not be permitted to enter the zoo. 
This applies to visitors of all ages, including under 3s. Exceptions apply only if everyone in your group live together in the same household or are part of a support bubble.

A face mask or face covering must be worn in all indoor areas of the zoo.
Exceptions apply only if you declare that you have a government listed exemption or are under the age of 11.

This is in accordance with current Government restrictions and laws, specific to England. You may be refused admission if you attempt to visit the zoo in a group of more than 6 or without a face covering and don’t declare a valid exemption.
