Blackpool is home to a deceptively large zoo which runs some top notch animal experience days. If you’re not local you might not even know about the zoo, as it’s often overlooked in favour of the more obvious Blackpool sights.
But never fear, because you can put you can book some nice animal experiences direct.
Here’s a list of the experience days available direct from Blackpool Zoo:
- Penguin encounter
- Meet the lemurs
- Tickle a tapir
- Feed a giraffe (pay on the day)
- Keeper for the day
- Aardvark adventure
- Big cat experience (lions and tigers)
- Bird training experience (with macaws and birds of prey)
- Sea lion experience
The experience packages include entry to the zoo, a parking pass, drink and biscuits voucher, guidebook, certificate, goody bag and a voucher for 10% off the gift shops.
At the time of writing, the penguin experience is sold out pretty far in advance so if you’re interested in this, maybe book as soon as possible or take a look at the UKs other penguin experience days.
