Advance booking of general admission

Due to the ongoing concerns around COVID-19, admission to the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis is currently by pre-booked, timed arrival tickets only. We are taking this approach to keep visitor numbers at safe levels so that everybody is able to enjoy their visit whilst maintaining a healthy social distance.

At the present time only 25 tickets are available in each half hour 'arrival window' (children under 3 years old do not need a ticket). Bookings can be made up to 14 days in advance, using the calendar below.

First admission is at 10am, with the final entry slot at 13:30 - 14:00. The Oasis closes at 5pm so you will have at least 3 hours for your visit.

If you are looking to visit on a day that is fully booked, we may be able to admit you after 2pm. Please contact us to check if we have any later availability.

Hot and cold food are available.

Please note that it is currently compulsory to wear a face covering in shops in England - including zoo and aquarium gift shops. We are strongly encouraging all zoo visitors to wear a face covering/mask when in the zoo shop and indoor areas.

If you are a Lakeland Wildlife Oasis member, please contact us to get a code that can be applied during online checkout to book your free ticket.
