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.

Great day out for young or old. Plenty to see and animals all looked well cared for. It’s always a hit with our grandson and with me to be honest 🙂.

This is the best attraction in town by far. Follow the feeding times so you can see the animals at their best and learn most about them

Yes, you can! There are picnic tables around the park, but do look out for seagulls - they'll steal your lunch. There's a nice spot by the Red pandas behind the sea lion arena that the gulls don't seem to like!

Hi, You could make it last all day if the weather is good. It opens at 10:00 and the animal shows are approx every 45 minutes. They last until 3ish... Hope this helps...
