Blackpool, Lancashire

Blackpool Postcard

Famous worldwide for its illuminations (typically through September and October), Blackpool offers everything that you might expect from a traditional seaside break. The equally famous trams run right along the front where, after tearing yourself away from the amusements and high speed rides you can take a quieter stroll along the promenade between the three piers.

All attractions are within easy reach of the town centre where you will also find a wide range of shopping experiences, pubs, night clubs, accommodation and amusement arcades. Night and Day you will find plenty to do within Blackpool itself, with three piers and as many thrilling rides as you can shake a stick of Blackpool rock at!

Blackpool also has 3 traditional seaside piers.
