Zoos, Farms & Wildlife
Home to a range of wildlife in a whole host of habitats; Blackpool has plenty to offer the animal lover.
Blackpool Zoo combines fun and wild animals to offer a family day out like no other. It is home to 1,500 animals, birds and insects from all over the world, including lions, giraffes, elephants, lemurs, meerkats, reptiles, gorillas, penguins and more.
If you love horses and ponies why not pay a trip to Penny Farm, which offers holidaymakers a day out with a difference and provides a permanent haven of peace and tranquility for over 55 rescued horses and ponies.
Experience the wildlife of the town’s parks with a nature walk (check out the events section for organised walks… or plan your own!) Or take a stroll along Blackpool’s beach where you can encounter birds and small sea creatures; if you’re very lucky you may even spot a seal, dolphin or porpoise off shore!
