From the tallest to the smallest and the funniest to the most ferocious, Blackpool Zoo is giving visitors the chance to get up close and personal with its residents this Easter.  Hand feeding majestic giraffes, flying a beautiful barn owl and meet and greets with comical sea lions are all available to book from Saturday 5th to Tuesday 22nd April.

Blackpool Zoo is Open!

As part of Step 2 of the national roadmap out of lockdown we are allowed to open once again.  

However, we will not be allowed to open most indoor areas: the indoor eating area of the cafe is closed, as are the indoor viewing area of animal houses including elephants, big cats, giraffes, small primates, gorillas and orangutans. These animals all have access to their outdoor enclosures, however they may take themselves inside during inclement weather.  Lemur Wood and Rainbow Landings remain closed.

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 really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo.
