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.

Love going to Blackpool Zoo. Excellent breeding zoo and animals always look at ease and relaxed. Nice food would be nicer if a little cheaper. Loads of variety to look at in the gift shop.

Despite storm Brian we still enjoyed the zoo. The animals were being sensible and keeping huddled together mainly indoors but we could still see and enjoy them. Obviously little cafes were shut as you'd expect this time of year. Very pleasurable visit and would go...More
