Animal Experiences Suspended

Due to the situation with COVID-19 (see our latest updates here) we have taken the decision to suspend all sales and new bookings of Animal Experiences at this time.

All existing bookings will be honoured (unless you have been contacted specifically). We will be opening bookings soon for those who either have had a booking cancelled or who have an existing voucher, we'll be in touch as soon as you are able to make a booking. We hope to be able to take new bookings and sell vouchers again in early 2021.

If you have any questions please email info@blackpoolzoo.org.uk.

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.
