Although mainly for the younger ones, the Blackpool donkey rides can carry adults but with restrictions.
The maximum weight limit is 8 stones so if you are like myself, a touch over, you can still enjoy yourself capturing those priceless moments with the camera!
With the weight limit and regular health checks all the donkeys are kept at stables and work a maximum of 48 hours throughout the week.
The Blackpool donkey rides are a great way to spend an afternoon on the beach.
Prices for the donkey rides are just a few pounds and for the fun you will have it is probably one of the best things to do in Blackpool.
Anything to do with animals can be controversial and with all the health checks, the high quality of stables, weight restrictions and working times the Blackpool donkeys are very well looked after.
Since 1890 when we knew less about animal welfare the treatment and care of the donkeys in Blackpool is second to none.
