What sets Blackpool Zoo apart from other zoos? Close encounters with animals, excellent facilities for our less able visitors and happy, friendly staff who want to make your visit fun! The zoo stands out in the resort, too, as being an attraction the whole family can visit together. We also have the only gorillas in the north-west and one of the best sea lion displays in the UK. Add to that those, the brand new Project Elephant, then put it all into 32 acres of beautiful, traditional English parkland and you have the hidden gem that is Blackpool Zoo.
If you’re planning a full day out, you’ll need to factor in food and drink. The Lake View Cafe is the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat, serving healthy meals, salads and snacks. Burgers, pizzas and hot dogs are also available at the BBQ kiosk, too.
Elsewhere, the Coffee Shop is available if you want to stop off for a Starbucks, our new Asian outlet, Nawala Street Food, and during the summer months there are various ice cream kiosks open around the Zoo.
Don’t forget to visit the gift shop on the way out, too. You’ll find a selection of cuddly toys, books, models and souvenirs that will provide your little ones with something to remember their day by.
