Local Attractions
Blackpool Zoo

Distance from the cottages 5.3 miles


Our researchers found the zoo very accessible and well worth a visit. The toilets in the restaurant and by the education bolck have left hand transfer and the toilets by the entrance have good dimensions and right hand transfer.
Assistance Dogs Policy:
The Zoo is presently arranging provision of kennels for guide / hearing dogs as these cannot be taken into the park. In the meantime, assistance dogs are most welcome to stay with the office staff or they can be left in your car under cover in the shade where you will be able to check on them throughout the day.
