We took our two year old grandson to Blackpool Zoo last Friday. We thought it was quite expensive but, as previous reviewers have mentioned, being able to use Tesco clubcard points makes it much more affordable. Any zoo that has elephants, lions, tigers, gorillas, orang utans and giraffes will prove popular as that's what most people go to see. The... More

Came with my teenaged daughter and hubby. Had a great day out, something for all of us. Loved seeing the new lion cubs, elephants and the sea lion show.

Had a fantastic day at Blackpool Zoo today, so much so that the kids didn't want to go home. Expensive but well worth the money. So many animals to see that we spent almost 6 hours walking around. The sea lion show was amazing, very clever and definitely worth watching. Will be returning again same time next year.

We really enjoyed the zoo, it was much better than we expected, just a shame that the weather was a bit iffy. Well worth a trip especially if you use Tesco vouchers. We paid extra to feed the giraffes and they were adorable, staff very helpful and pleasant.

Brilliant family day out. Something for everyone. Beautiful animals, recent litter of tiger cubs, fabulous sea lion show. Kids play area and petting farm which is nice feature. Reasonably priced cafe serving decent food. Food court style with choices for everyone. We spent a full day here, had plenty to do and see. Great day out!

What a lovely clean and tidy zoo! You can tell they love and respect the animals in their care from the talks and how clean the enclosures are. We thought it was closer than it was! Turned out to be a 2.5 mile walk to zoo walk around then 2.5 mile walk back. Still gave us a good reason to... More
