Just spent the day at the zoo with our 10month old, who I know is too small to properly enjoy herself but I can't say I will be back once she is older. Nice zoo animals all look well looked after etc Don't not buy food from here it isn't nice, make your own and take it with you.

Worth the money. I've been about 5 times now! I love Lima walk! The food at the cafe is about as expensive as anywhere else so if you're a family I'd probably recommend a packed lunch.

Well run and laid out zoo. Animals looked well looked after. Lots to see and do and very informative talks throughout the day on various animals. Bus no 20 from Blackpool .

We had a fantastic day out at Blackpool zoo at the weekend and were fortunate to have hot weather. The Sea lion show was brilliant and very impressive - a must see. There were plenty of different animals to see and we definitely recommend a visit.

Couldn't fault the Zoo, we had a great time. Would highly recommend it. Went with 2 children aged 10 & 7, they had a great time, very friendly staff and keepers. very keen to talk to the kids and answer questions. Lovely open spaces and the animals were fantastic.
