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 pre booked and it was cheaper, although children under 3 was free, which was good. We liked the zoo very much, the staff were very knowledgeable. There seemed to be less animals than I remember at my previous visit, although this was some time...More

I would say take your own food and have a good picnic as loads of green spaces to have it. the cafe is ok priced but the burger/hot dog stall is not at £4.50 each.
