A trip to Blackpool has to be on every kid’s wish list, so whether you bring the family for the very first time or you haven’t been for a while you’ll want to make sure that it’s completely unforgettable for everyone.

To help you plan your trip to Blackpool we’ve pulled together some ideas to get you started.

Sit down with the kids and ask what things and activities do they love. Here’s some ideas to get you started...

Love animals? Try Blackpool Zoo and the SEA LIFE Centre.

Excitement, BIG thrills and spills? Head straight to Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Beach games and traditional family fun? Spend time discovering Blackpool’s Beach and three piers –and don’t forget a trip to the top of the iconic Blackpool Tower.

Swimming, splashing & soaking? Sandcastle Waterpark with over 18 slides is a must.

Musicals and theatre fans? Check out the incredible variety of shows on at The Winter Gardens and Grand Theatre, and don’t forget the Blackpool Tower Circus.

And if you just can’t decide where to start - The Blackpool Tower has five very different attractions under one roof including the Blackpool Tower Dungeon and the very strictly Blackpool Tower Ballroom.


Food and scent have the ability to transport us back to a specific time and place so don’t forget to try some (or all) of these Blackpool favourites.

Fish and chips - Try Harry Ramsden’s new restaurant and bar right next to the Tower.

Ice cream - Best eaten whilst strolling across the Comedy Carpet! (just in front of the Tower)

Blackpool rock - Coronation Rock (the largest rock manufacturer in Blackpool) offers free tours so you can find out exactly how they get the letters through the middle!

For families, The Blackpool Resort Pass is a must. This new ticket is designed to bring you the best of Blackpool with great value for money at your favourite attractions, ensuring you have the best possible time.

The Blackpool Resort Pass provides you with one visit to each of the nine attractions across seven days. Enjoy massive savings!


Why not keep mementos like tickets, photos and receipts so that you and your children can put together a scrapbook containing all the best bits of your family trip. With so much to see and do in Blackpool, there’s no doubt your whole family will take home lots of very special memories.
