Blackpool Zoo is preparing to welcome some of the world’s most endangered birds.

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!’

There’s another exciting year in the pipeline here at Blackpool Zoo as management reflect on an incredible 2018, which included highs such as the grand opening of its largest ever single investment, some very special new arrivals and record visitor numbers!

Blackpool Zoo is Open!

As part of Step 2 of the national roadmap out of lockdown we are allowed to open once again.  

However, we are not allowed to open indoor areas (until 17th May): 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, however they may take themselves inside during inclement weather.  Lemur Wood and Rainbow Landings remain closed.

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 look forward to welcoming you to Blackpool Zoo.
