Welcome to our newly refreshed website which we think will enhance your experience of using Real Donkeys in the future as it offers so much more versatility and options as we continue to improve our services to your our customers.

We provide donkey rides to children of all ages and work closely alongside the donkey charter set out by the Donkey Sanctuary.

I’m especially proud of the friendly and welcoming environment and the personal attention we give to our customers, that’s you by the way !

As you can see above, we really do love our donkeys very much and would never swop them for the world.

We currently have around 20 donkeys of all ages and have been working on the Golden Mile at Blackpool for over 21 years.

  • Donkey rides have always proven popular and many people return year on year despite there being other more modern activities in Blackpool to do
  • Donkey rides are an ideal activity for children of all ages.
  • Our donkeys are well mannered and children friendly.

Why not make it a fun day out for all the family and join us on the golden sands of Blackpool.

We are of course fully licensed and hold public liability insurance so you can be assured that your stay with us will be a safe and pleasant one for everyone involved.

Our donkey's have won many awards such as "Best Beach Donkey's" for two consecutive years and runner up in the best group for Britain judged by the Donkey Sanctuary.

We’ve also received awards for

2009 - Best Group Donkeys - Spring

2009 - Best Blackpool Donkeys - Dillon

2010 - Best Group Donkeys - Summer

The donkeys have also take part in traditional occasions including Palm Sunday parades, church activities and Christmas Nativities.

They have also been involved in television and promotional events and have worked alongside celebrities such as Peter Kay in his pop idol comedy sketch.

They have also featured in SKY TV's Animal Planet together with Coronation Street stars including Les Battersby [Bruce Jones] and David Platt [Jack P Shepard] and more recently with Merlin Entertainments promoting "Talking Donkey Rides" in London on the South Bank.
