Blackpool - The Zoo

On our last day in Blackpool, Alex and I decided to visit the Blackpool Zoo.

The zoo is built on the former municipal airport site with some of the original hangars still used for animal enclosures. The zoo opened in 1972 and is now owned by a Spanish company and has links with other zoos within the company’s portfolio.
Our first point of call was an exhibit that worked it's way through the 4 prehistoric eras with models of various dinosaurs and a lot of sound effects adding to the atmosphere. Some of the exhibits looked a little tired, but all kids love dinosaurs (and adults too). And we were no exception.

Some photos taken during our visit:
