February half-term family fun at the zoo

You are here


There will be plenty of fun for all the family at the zoo this February half-term.

The chance to fly a barn owl, hand feed one of the zoo’s majestic giraffes and even meet and greet the family of Californian sealions are just a few of the daily animal encounters families can get involved in from Saturday 13th to Sunday 21st February (Sealion meet and greet available from Monday 15th to Sunday 21st only).

A jam-packed extended programme of educational talks will also be happening throughout the week and loved-up visitors will be able to complete the Valentine’s zoo trail.

For those who like to plan ahead, we have a whole host of animal experiences including fence feeding a tiger and tickling a tapir, which are available all year round and can be booked via the zoo’s reception.

Our daily animal encounters are available to be booked on the day of visit from the Main Gift Shop. Tickets are limited so spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. Prices start from £10.

The animal experiences require a pre-booking at reception. Prices start from £60.

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.
