A 10-minute drive from the promenade, the green side of Blackpool can be found at the Blackpool Zoo.
In and amongst 32 acres of lakes, trees and open spaces over 1000 animals can be found, including lions, tigers, giraffes, gorillas, orangutans, sea lions and many more. New for 2018, the UK’s largest elephant house and a brand new enclosure are housing a new herd of Asian elephants as well as our old favourite, Kate! Families can enjoy learning about the animals with up to 20 talks, feeds and displays during the summer months. A great favourite is the daily Sea Lion Display, when the animals and trainers teach visitors all about their habitat and threats by showing off their natural behaviours.
