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.

Loved this zoo especially the penguins and the lions and the children's area and the farm animals. Only thing to be aware of is that its advisable to take your own food and drink as their cafe is expensive.

Had a lot of animals but not nearly enough room for them. Most the animals seemed depressed. Not a very pleasant experience. Plus u had to pay for parking. Greedy! The whole park was run down. A lot of things closed. No staff about. Should have had a discounted winter price.

While Blackpool is definitely not the worst zoo, it could definitely be improved. Some enclosures seem unnatural for the animals and some animals even show stereotypic behaviours, which is bad.

Blackpool zoo is a fantastic place for a day out and is only going to get better this year with the new elephant enclosure opening later in 2017.
