Living it up in Blackpool!
Affectionately known as the 'Las Vegas of the North', Blackpool has it all. Take a seaside break with Best Western and find out for yourself why Blackpool has been and continues to be a favourite amongst generations of families.
Blackpool is recommended because of:
- The Pleasure Beach
- Blackpool Zoo
- Blackpool Tower and circus
- Its Three Piers
A coastal hotel break with Best Western welcomes the thrill seeker and the 'not so brave', you'll find this resort more than satisfies any adrenaline junkie. However Blackpool is much more than kiss me quick hats, donkey rides and white knuckle rides!
So what is there to do in and around Blackpool?
Traditional deckchairs, seaside rock and ice creams live in harmony with the modern bright neon illuminations - so Blackpool truly does have something for everyone.
Visit the Pleasure Beach for the tallest roller-coaster in the UK, ride the Valhalla – if you dare!.
Walk the golden mile, visit each of Blackpool's amazing three piers or take a trip to the Sandcastle - Blackpools premier indoor leisure facility.
Blackpool Zoo is a must see while you are here, with over 1,500 animals to see, it really is a great family day out.
Take a trip to the 150m Tower and Circus, home of the world famous Tower ballroom, or simply take a trip to the top and take in the fabulous panoramic views across the Irish Sea and Lancashire.
Fancy travelling a little further afield?
Ribble Steam Railway Museum is a fun packed family day out in the heart of Lancashire. A visit here will not only give you the opportunity to travel along the 1½ mile dock and riverside line, but also access their newly built museum and workshop.
The Martin Mere Wetland Centre is home to over 100 species of rare and endangered swans, ducks, flamingos, geese and beavers – a truly fascinating day out for all the family.
