Overview

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.

Fabulous day out, well worth the money, the zoo has invested a lot of time and money upgrading it to this standard, it is spotlessly clean you can tell the animals are all happy in big spaces and extremely well cared for.

Lots to see. Plenty of places to picnic or eat. Not too expensive. Our little people were ready to leave just after lunch but we had covered most of the zoo including a ride on the train. Staff really lovely.
