HI, I’M MARK ineson

I am the owner of Real Donkeys and I work tirelessly to ensure that our customers are completely satisfied at all times.

We provide donkey rides to children and adults of all ages and we are especially proud of the friendly and welcoming environment and the personal attention we give to our customers, that’s you by the way !

We currently have around 14 donkeys of all ages and have been working on the Golden Mile at Blackpool for over 12 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.

Make it a fun day out for all the family and join us on Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

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

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