The changes that have been made to the zoo over the years have been great, good value the animals are clean and well looked after and there are plenty of facilities for eating on site or picnicking.

We've been to the zoo before but thought we would pay another visit. Its a great zoo, especially the sea lion show and being able to see the penguins underwater.

We as a family love the zoo in Blackpool. The environment is good, the staff are friendly and helpful and there's plenty to keep you entertained for the day. Also has various food outlets during the summer as well as the main restaurant and coffee shop.
