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.

One of my favourite zoos! Much smaller than others but I prefer this as this is more personal so you are able to see the animals better. The sea lion show is great especially if the weather is nice as it felt like we were...More

We visited the zoo on a showery day but still enjoyed it there are plenty of places to shelter and still watch the animals, the talks were informative and interesting, the sea lions were very amusing, and the cafeteria is a good standard.
