Blackpool Zoo

Blackpool Zoo is a reference when it comes to zoos and wildlife parks in the North West. The park has been open to the public since 1972 and it remains one of the most popular and favourite spots amongst those who visit the seaside town of Blackpool.

Extending over 32 acres, families travel from across the country to spend a day or two getting to know more about a varied range of wildlife. At Blackpool Zoo, visitors will find plenty of exhibitions and activities to engage with, including walk-through aviaries, dinosaur safari (think Jurassic Park without the chase), children’s farm, and so much more!

  • Amur tiger: Aylona, a beautiful female Amur tiger, is one of Blackpool Zoo’s, is one of the most imponent residents of the complex. Originating from Northern Asia, the species has been on the edge of extinction due to intensive hunting in the area.
