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.

Lovely zoo. Foods alright in the cafe. Everything is expensive but i don’t mind because it’s for the zoo intake. Could do with someone constantly picking up rubbish or people stop throwing stuff on the floor!!

Had a great time at the zoo with my girlfriend seeing all the different animals. The elephant part is soooo much better than it used to be. Great time.
