Coronavirus COVID-19: Information for Visitors

Last Reviewed - 10th June 2020

The zoo is currently closed but we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Following Boris Johnson’s announcement that zoos and safari parks can reopen from Monday 15th June, we are preparing to welcome visitors back through our doors in the near future.

We had been working towards opening in early July, but are now doubling efforts in order to open at an earlier date, which we hope to announce soon.

Schools & Groups

As a multi award-winning zoo with over 1,000 animals, we're the perfect destination for a wild day out! Educational visits can be self guided or lessons and tours can be booked to really make the most of your visit.

Lessons are hosted in our Education Academy, a dedicated space with several individually themed classrooms.

  • Blackpool Zoo is a popular destination for schools and groups of all ages to visit throughout the year.
  • We offer curriculum-linked sessions for all ages from early years to undergraduate. If your topic isn’t on our list we can create a lesson or tour just for you!
  • To help plan your trip, we've put together some information that we think might come in helpful to make your day out as stress free as possible.
  • We understand the importance of health and safety when taking students on an educational visit.
  • If you visit with your School or Group, take part in one of our courses, listen to a talk or join us on a learning programme - chances are you'll come across one or more of these friendly faces along the way.
  • Practical Learning Activities are bespoke courses offering unique learning opportunities within the zoo.
