Located only five minutes from Junction 4 of the M55 motorway, the Zoo is situated in 32 acres of spacious, mature parkland with lakes, waterfalls and traditional English woodland. All your favourites are here – big cats, elephants, giraffes, gorillas, orang utans and, of course, our “Blue Peter” TV stars, the sealions.
The animals reside in large, natural enclosures and Blackpool Zoo’s aim is to make sure that you get as close as possible to all our species, however large or small. You can hold Colin the cockroach in Creepy Crawly Corner, meet a monkey in Amazonia, stroke a giant rabbit in the Children’s Farm or hop alongside a kangaroo in Wallaby Walkabout. Be amazed at the power of feline killers, our pride of lions and Zambar, our Amur tiger or enjoy the athletic antics of the sealions in Active Oceans. There really is something for everyone here at the Zoo.
Newly arrived for 2012 is a pair of incredible Giant Anteaters. You can learn about this amazing new species and many more during our regular talks and feeds.
Our restaurant and cafe cater for all tastes and pockets with a wide variety of full meals, fast food and snacks, and we now proudly serve Starbucks. Souvenirs abound in the retail outlets from pocket money items to lifelike soft toy animals.
