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.

Thank you for your feedback. Our big cats are all in excellent health and receive enrichment on a regular basis. They do tend to check the boundaries of their enclosures at various times during the day, and will pace in anticipation of being fed. However,...More

Had an amazing time. Lots to do for kids and lots to see for adults. Heavily populated with monkeys, not that it's a problem. Only issue was the size of the enclosures but that's pretty much the same at every zoo.

Great day out. Lots of animals to see. Good animal talks/feeding. You can take your own food inside and use picnic tables or eat at the reasonably priced cafeteria.
