The zoo shelters elephants, giraffes, sea lions, gorillas, orangutans, camels, and zebras, to name just a few. Newly added in 2011, Children’s Farm allows families with kids to encounter and feed donkeys, sheep, and goats. One of the zoo’s most popular attractions is Dinosaur Safari, a walk-through area with over 30 life-size statues of extinct animals, with fiberglass models of Tyrannosaurus rex and the woolly mammoth.

  • This was our third visit to this wonderful zoo. The animals are really content & well looked after. We love the gorillas! Could sit for hours watching their antics. The food on sale is varied...

  • We visited Blackpool Zoo today and beforehand I had high expectations. We visited as a family with our 4 year old, 3 year old and 11 month old. We had been holding off visiting a zoo for 12-18 months....  more

  • Lovely zoo! Loads of animals and the elephant enclosure was great. Plenty for the kids to see and do. All enclosures are large for the animals and they have loads of room to roam around. Nice and clean with friendly staff. Also great that they have Starbucks and Subway inside to get food and drinks. Will definitely be visiting again in the future!
  • It's a really good zoo! This place actually has a lot more there than you think, we loved the elephants and monkeys. The zoo isn't massive so it's easy to get around, but my kids did mention they felt like the enclosure was small for some animals. We would absolutely go again.
