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.

As locals we have visited the zoo four times over the last few years. The zoo is very clean and the animals are well cared for. There is plenty for young families to do.

We visited here today with our 7 month old. It was probably more for us than him! Given it was a cold, rainy Monday during term time, the place was very quiet. We got to see all of the animals undisturbed and got great pictures....More

Thank you for your review. The zoo is constantly being refurbished or having new features added, but the work is quite often behind the scenes. Our new elephant house has cost over £2 million, but many thousands were also spent on a new filtration system...More
