Overview
More
Blackpool Zoo is a family friendly attraction, providing fun and education for all ages. Situated only 2 miles inland the Promenade, the park is easily accessible from the M55 motorway. Over 1000 animals, birds and reptiles reside in a scenic 32 acre park amidst mature trees, lakes and spacious lawns where the kids can burn off their excess energy. All your favourites are here including big cats, elephants, giraffes, sealions, gorillas, orangutans, camels, zebras and many, many more. Opened in 2014, the new Orangutan Outlook allows visitors to get up close and personal with these charismatic apes. Open daily (except Christmas Day) from 10 am, the park's closing times vary seasonally.

We had a great day out at the zoo, very family friendly with activities and shows going on all day! My only problem is that some of the enclosures seem quite small for the animals. I know they said about refurbishing the elephant enclosure, and...More

We visit the zoo every summer with our children - aged 2 and 4 on our last visit. It’s a nice alternative to Chester, being much smaller and manageable for little legs. There are plenty of animals to see - ours particularly enjoy seeing the...More
