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 closed!

In light of the most recent national lockdown announcement from the government, sadly we will be temporarily closing Blackpool Zoo again from 5th January 2021.

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 apologise for any disappointment and thank you for your patience.

We really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo when we are allowed to re-open.

Stay safe everyone.
