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.

We go every other Sunday as we are members, it is fantastic for the kids as you can let them run wild without having to worry about them, would recommend to anyone, the animals are looked after well and the place is spotless, only problem is seagulls swooping down and stealing food out of your hand, maybe they should let...

First trip to Blackpool Zoo. A very enjoyable day with my 2 year old granddaughter, very clean and we loved the walkways that enable great access to the animals. Very impressed with the sea lions. A lovely day out for all the family, will definitely be back.

Brilliant time here as always absolutely love it here we come around 3 times a year , love the petting farm area and the parks, very up close and personal to the animals and a brilliant sea lion show :)! Only thing that got me was there was only 1 elephant who looked bored and lonely inside a small indoor... More

The online booking system worked well. We had also ordered the souvenir guide but the scannable bar code didn't work. The staff rechecked that we had pre ordered the guide and gave it to us with no problems. All the animals looked well looked after. The sea lion show was very good. The food/drink outlets around the zoo were not... More

Thank you for your review. Just to clarify - we do close the Lake View Cafe and small kiosks during the winter for maintenance and cleaning etc while we have fewer visitors. However, they are now open again until next winter. More

Fabulous day out and my daughter loved seeing the animals. The food is reasonably priced and very tasty. The talks by the keepers were wonderful and all appeared to be genuinely interested and happy to be there which is lovely to see. Will be back if we ever come back to Blackpool.

I have visited the zoo many times but hubby and I decided to spend a couple of hours braving the weather, instead of waiting for summer weather. What a great time we had! There were lots of people there and all we could hear was laughter and cries of amazement. To see and hear children saying things about animals which... More

Called here with friends and was not very impressed. The whole place needed some love and attention the animals were looked after but nowhere near as impressive as chester zoo. Sorry

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you were disappointed by your visit. We do know that the park doesn't look at its best during the winter months, but we don't have the space to create a facility like our friends at Chester Zoo. More

I have never been to Blackpool Zoo before and I was very impressed. Luckily we had lovely weather, there's plenty of things to do and well signed to get around! All i would say is if you are travelling to the Zoo on the bus (like we did from Blackpool town centre) check the bus times as they can be... More

I'm not sure how much I agree with zoos although I understand when the animals are needing to be protected although the staff were friendly my only one concern is poor Kate the elephant I am told she will get some friends soon she just looked so sad. All in all a good zoo and children enjoyed it and I... More
