Blackpool Zoo is a family friendly attraction, providing fun and education...

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.

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.

A bit late sharing our experience but ..... plenty of car parking room and entrance to the zoo not overcrowded. Overall thought it was quite expensive .... 3 adults and 2 children. Must admit a touch disappointed with the zoo and the length of time it takes to go around. All in all spent just a few hours and even... More

Thank you for your review - we do appreciate your feedback. We estimate a visit to last for about 5 hours if you take time to enjoy the feeds and displays at some of the enclosures. This will, of course, be extended later this year when the new elephant house is opened. Hopefully, you'll return to see it. More
