When volunteers at Blackpool’s Stanley Park donated a 50 stone pumpkin to the elephants at the neighbouring zoo it soon became apparent that moving it wasn’t going to be an easy task!

It’s been an exciting few days here at Blackpool Zoo as we’ve just welcomed the first male elephant in our 47-year history.

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.
