A day out at Blackpool Zoo

Blackpool Zoo is the ultimate experience for families who enjoy discovering nature. Built upon the site of Blackpool’s old Municipal airport, the zoo aims to bring you up close and personal to as many exotic and unusual animals as is safe to do so! From Lemur Wood and Amazonia to the new Wallaby Enclosure, there are many and varied areas in which you can get up close and personal to a variety of unusual and interesting animals.

Active Oceans is a new exhibit featuring Blackpool’s beloved sealions in a new enclosure right next to the fun and frolics of the loveable Magellanic penguins.

Blackpool Zoo is home to the Pride of Blackpool, four adult African lions: the male, Wallace and females, Gillian, Rachel and Jasmine, a stunning grassed enclosure designed to encourage the lions to bask on the heated ‘pride rock’.

Go wild in Blackpool!

Back in 2008, giraffes made a welcome return to Blackpool Zoo with the introduction of three females from Fota in Southern Ireland, and more swiftly followed. The giraffes are doing well on the parks breeding programme and a newer addition Sonia gave birth to calf O’Grady in October. As tall as they are, Blackpool Zoo lets you get eye to eye with the giraffes in the multi viewing level enclosure.

Blackpool Zoo is not only home to living animals, but also offers visitors a trip back in time with the exciting and educational Dinosaur Safari. The ageing and magnificent tortoises form the connection between the ancient and the present as you move from the lands of the prehistoric to the exciting and educational main zoo area.
