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.

Cafe not open so we used the refreshment stand next to it. This however was poorly stocked. We queued for what felt like forever to find that all sandwiches were gone and all that was left was crisps and ice cream. Not great on a cold day. We were told to go back to admissions if we wanted anything to... More

Me and my friend chose Blackpool zoo for a day out as my friend has a little boy who is 1, we had travelled from Liverpool and Never have I been so disappointed! 1) the fact you have to pay for parking is actually quite disgusting with how much you pay for the tickets yes it may only be £2.50...

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.

BlackpoolZoo, Guest Relations Manager at Blackpool Zoo, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. All our animals reside in enclosures which exceed the recommended size for the species but we do try hard to offer much more. They are also subject to veterinary checks and daily observation, so any animal not in good health, physically or mentally, would be identified and treated.... More

They have a wide range of animals and the enclosures the animals are kept in are of decent size. They had enclosures that... More
