Blackpool Pier Tower and Ocean Promenade

Emerge from your Blackpool hotel and hop on the seafront tram to take in this city’s up-for-it attitude, where fun comes first and it’s always holiday time.

Historic Blackpool

There are guided tours of Blackpool’s neoclassical Grand Theatre whose huge interior reflects the boom in theatre-going in the late 19th century. Wander the floors of the Eiffel-inspired Blackpool Tower, from the glittering chandeliers of the Tower Ballroom, home of BBC’s Come Dancing for years, to the glass floor at the tower top’s Walk of Faith. Acrophobics beware.

Art and museums in Blackpool

At Grundy Art Gallery modern art lifts the soul and contemporary jewellery is on sale in the shop. Ripley’s Believe It or Not presents a floating tap and a two-headed calf as you stroll through the genuinely weird collection of curios. Long-term Coronation Street fans can cosy up to Ena Sharples outside the Rover’s Return at Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks.

Quirky things to do in Blackpool

Plonk the kids on a beach donkey – it’s simple, cheap and they love it – or feel the candy-floss and tummy ache thrills of the white-knuckle rides on the Pleasure Beach. Stroll down Blackpool’s elegant piers for arcade games and family entertainment before you head back to your Blackpool hotel.

Events in Blackpool

Blackpool’s annual Dance Festival in May sees competitors shaking their sequins and false eyelashes at the Winter Gardens. Don’t miss the Illuminations, from September to November.
