We get asked all sorts of questions here at the zoo... But this email and our conversation with a man named Chudders has made us smile so much we just had to share it with you. 

So grab a brew, put your feet up and enjoy - we hope it brightens your day!! 

Blackpool Zoo is currently closed!

The government has announced that the outdoor areas of zoos will be allowed to reopen no earlier than Monday 12th April.  Until then we remain closed.

As always please be assured that our dedicated keeper team will continue to provide the best care for our animals during the closure.

If you’ve booked tickets for any day during this closure, you can exchange them for another date. Please send your booking details to tickets@blackpoolzoo.org.uk.

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels.

We really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo when we are allowed to reopen.

Stay safe everyone.
