Sticks of rock, buckets and spades, fairground rides and colourful souvenirs - the British seaside holiday is alive and kicking and awaiting your visit!
Book car rental in Blackpool in advance and online to ensure you get the best possible price and then either pick up from the airport or downtown locations.
Hours of fun can be spent on the beach, but if you've had your fill of building sandcastles, a trip to the Pleasure Beach is a must on visits to Blackpool. Dare you brave the Pepsi Max 'Big One' and other white knuckle rides, or would you prefer to try the longest indoor rollercoaster waterslide at the Sandcastle Waterpark?
The Blackpool Tower is another fantastic day out. Housing no less than four attractions (the Blackpool Tower Eye and 4D Cinema, the Ballroom, the Dungeon and the Circus) you won't be short of things to do!
The Eye is particularly impressive, as after your ascent to the top by a lift, you have the option to go on the Skywalk which is made completely of glass and will reward you with phenomenal views of the town below. It is certainly not one for those who are scared of heights!
There is also a zoo, Madame Tussauds and Sealife Centre, and during late August and early November you can see the town lit up by the Blackpool Illuminations. Purchasing the Blackpool Resort Pass will save you money if you are planning to visit a number of attractions during your stay.
The nightlife is legendary in Blackpool and you will find plenty of bars, pubs and clubs in which to strut your stuff. There are also a number of shows you can book to enjoy entertainment in the evening.
