Blackpool Illuminations

From 1 September 2017

The Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On Weekend is yet again set to be one of the biggest events in Blackpool!
The Switch-On show takes place on the Tower Festival Headland on Friday 1st September 2017.

Whilst most visitors drive through the lights either by car, coach or bus, there are some more exciting and rewarding ways of viewing the dazzling displays. Hop aboard an open top tram for the clearest view of the lights, or perhaps a ride in a horses drawn carriage could be a special romantic treat.

You can of course walk through the Illuminations, with a warm coat and a bag of chips: the best way to get involved with the interactive elements of this uniquely Blackpool attraction.
