Blackpool is Britain’s favourite seaside resort, known as the Las Vegas of the North, with almost every form of entertainment imaginable to guarantee you a day out never to forget.
The Blackpool Tower is the city’s most famous sight, as recognizable to many as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and has much more going for it than just panoramic views across the Irish Sea.
A trip to the tower could find you witnessing death defying circus acts or losing yourself in the rhythm at an international tango competition in the magnificent Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
Alternatively, descend into the dungeons and catch a frighteningly funny show based on Lancastrian legend.
A short walk along the promenade is the Blackpool Pleasure Beach, full of exhilarating rollercoaster rides like the Big One for adrenalin junkies and child-friendly attractions to suit any family fun day out.
After an eventful day, indulge in some traditional fish and chips with mushy peas and enjoy an evening’s entertainment at the Pier End Theatre.
If you still have the energy after all that, you can head into town and witness the stunning Blackpool Illuminations (during autumn) on your way to a live show or touring comedian at the majestic Grand Theatre or Winter Gardens.
Whatever your age or interests the possibilities are endless in this enduring British favourite.
