Blackpool

Seaside fun all year round.

Blackpool, England

BLACKPOOL - AT A GLANCE

  • For centuries Blackpool has been Britain's most popular seaside resort, packed with wall to wall family entertainment.
     
  • West End hits, sell-out concerts, ballet and operas, tributes to the stars, circus, illusion and cool, contemporary productions – Blackpool has them all. Add a splash of cabaret, a dash of cutting edge club culture and you’ve got a recipe for good fun.
     
  • Hit the seafront for rollercoasters and donkey rides on the beach, then head to the iconic Blackpool Tower for a dance in the opulent ballroom.
     
  • Be sure to climb the tower for excellent views.
     
  • Zoom down the slides at the Sandcastle water park, try rock climbing or have a go at ice skating. And if you fancy something a little more sedate, why not have a paddle in the sea?
     
  • The town, in the county of Lancashire, is around 3 hours north west of London by train.
