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 now open!

We are in Tier 3 rule so we are unable to open indoor viewing areas of our animal houses or indoor seating areas – but stick your wellies on, dig out your woollies, wrap up warm and enjoy plenty of fresh air as you explore the zoo.

We are really looking forward to welcoming you all back!!

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.
