With some of the best traditional and modern attractions in the country Blackpool has something for everyone! From world-class theme park rides to a beautifully renovated promenade to the Blackpool Tower and of course the famous 'Illuminations' there's always a familiar site to visit and something new to discover.
Blackpool Tower was built in 1894, with its inspiration taken from the Eiffel Tower in Paris which was built only 5 years before.
The tower houses a circus, aquarium and the famous victorian ballroom which is still used regularly today. Other attractions include the glass floor at the top of tower which visitors can walk on if they dare! - Visit the Blackpool Tower website.
Pleasure Beach was created in 1896, shortly after the tower was completed with the intention to create an American-style theme park in the UK.
Today, visitors can find major rides such as the 'Pepsi Max Big One' which is Europe's tallest and fastest rollercoaster and for the children there is a dedicated safe haven with smaller rides and attractions. - Visit the Pleasure Beach website.
Blackpool Illuminations is Blackpool's annual spectacular which sees the city still buzzing with fun long after other resorts have gone into winter hibernation. -
