On Thursday 6th July 1972, 3543 people attended the launch of Blackpool Zoo and now, almost 45 years later, we're preparing to celebrate our 15th millionth visitor

Blackpool Zoo is reopening on Monday 12th April!

The government has announced that the outdoor areas of zoos will be allowed to reopen on Monday 12th April 2021.  

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.

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.

Stay safe everyone.
