Blackpool Map

Blackpool is Britain’s most loved holiday destination, which should come as no surprise when you think about the huge range of attractions available all year round, as well as the new seafront, world class events and spectacular lighting shows.


If you are feeling adventurous take a trip up the famous Blackpool Tower, which soars 158 metres above the town or get your adrenaline pumping at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, where you can ride the UK’s tallest rollercoaster, the Big One. 

Quieter adventurers can appreciate Blackpool’s calmer side by strolling down the newly renovated South Promenade, where they will discover contemporary artwork by pop artist Sir Peter Blake and the glittery spectacle that is the world’s largest Mirror Ball in the Great Promenade Show.


The magnificent Winter Gardens have a fantastic programme of unmissable events from award-winning West End shows like MAMMA MIA! to big name music concerts, as well as the Blackpool Grand Theatre offering the stunning design of Frank Matcham.

Coming in the Autumn? Don’t miss the world-famous Blackpool Illuminations, that turn six miles of promenade into a glittering festival of light and magic.

Whether you are nine or 90, there are plenty of things you can do in Blackpool and with a wide range of accommodation from hotels to self-catering; there is something for every pocket.
So make this holiday special and take a trip to this fantastic seaside town.
