Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions and their impact on the operation of the zoo, the Playbarn will remain closed until further notice.

Once we do reopen the Playbarn we will automatically extend all Playbarn Memberships to reflect the duration of the closure and time left on your membership.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

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 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.
