************* THIS OFFER HAS NOW EXPIRED!!! *************

Blackpool Zoo is, once again, extending a huge thank you to its local supporters by offering residents of Blackpool, Wyre and the Fylde and half price admission throughout March 2019!

If the female herd here at the Zoo were to join a dating site in its hunt for a suitable alpha male it might read a little like this: ‘Group of larger ladies looking for a strong male to lead their herd and join them in their new luxury pad. With a swimming pool and a three-acre garden there is plenty of room for the pitter-patter of not so tiny feet!’

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.
