Covid-19 Visitor Information

From Tuesday 30th November 2021, Face Coverings are mandatory in indoor areas of the zoo (unless exempt), including the entrance hall, shop, indoor viewing areas of animal exhibits and toilet blocks.  They are not mandatory, but are recommended in the cafe and coffee shop

Lemur Wood remains closed for the time being and daily animal talks and displays are still suspended but we have created a series of podcasts for visitors to listen to as they make their way around the zoo.

A full list of restrictions and measures in place can be found here.  Please ensure you read them before you book your tickets as they are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

We look forward to welcoming you to Blackpool Zoo.
