Are you looking for an outdoor attraction with loads of fun for the family? Then look no further. The multi award-winning Blackpool Zoo has it all! Located only five minutes from Junction 4 of the M55 motorway, the zoo provides a haven of peace, tranquility and over 1000 animals in 37 acres of traditional, spacious parkland and lakes, as well as offering an educational yet fun day out for all the family. All your favourites are here – big cats, elephants, giraffes, gorillas, orangutans and, of course, 'Blue Peter' TV stars, the sealions.

Blackpool Zoo’s restaurant and cafe cater for all tastes and pockets with a wide variety of meals, fast food and snacks, and they now proudly serve Starbucks. Souvenirs abound in the retail outlets from pocket money items to life-like soft toy animals.
