Blackpool Zoo has been keeping families informed, educated and entertained in the North West of England for over 50 years

That’s even longer than Coral Island has been around! If you’re looking for an entertaining, educating and fun day out for the whole family, then make plans to visit all our friends - big and small, furry and scaly - at Blackpool Zoo!


You’ll find more than 1,500 exotic animals at this hidden gem, from all around the world from Aardvarks to Zebras, all living in specially designed habitats that span 37 acres of traditional, spacious parkland and lakes.


Go Ape! 

Blackpool Zoo proudly boasts the only family of gorillas in the whole of the north of England, so make sure you meet Bukavu (the silverback), Miliki, Njema, and youngsters Meisie, Moanda and Makari when you visit, before heading next door to see the amazing Bornean orangutans in Orangutan Outlook.


Pack Your Trunks! 

Project Elephant Base Camp opened at Blackpool Zoo in 2018, and is a specially designed area to suit the particulate needs of these mammoth beasts, and features state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. It has become home to a herd of six elephants, who thrive in their habitat, which includes the largest indoor area in the UK!


The Pride Of Blackpool 

The state-of-the-art Big Cat Habitat opened in 2023 and is home to majestic Amur tigers and a breeding group of African lions. This facility has been designed to encourage natural behaviour and has more indoor and outdoor spaces for these magnificent felines to prowl, as well as more viewing areas for visitors to marvel at the pride of Blackpool!


Interactive Animal Adventures 

There’s always a packed programme of fascinating talks, feeds, and displays on offer at Blackpool Zoo, as well as a series of interactive walk-through exhibits such as Lemur Wood or Rainbow Landings where you can get closer to the animals you love and make memories of a family day out that you’ll treasure forever!
