You will find that once you've bought some Blackpool rock and donned your Kiss Me Quick hat, there is an almost inexhaustible list of things to do and see in this great resort.
In the shadow of Blackpool Tower you'll find the Comedy Carpet, an artwork featuring catchphrases from many of Britain's best-loved comedians. In the summer, you can explore the piers, ride the donkeys and stroll along the Promenade and the Golden Mile eating ice cream. But Blackpool is more than just a classic British seaside resort. Regardless of the weather, you can still enjoy shows at the Grand Theatre and the Opera House, which is set inside a larger indoor entertainment complex known as the Winter Gardens.
Animal lovers will enjoy visiting both Blackpool Zoo and the local Sea Life Centre, celebrity spotters will have a whale of a time at Madame Tussaud's, while sports fans can share the rising fortunes of local team Blackpool FC. Take time to get to know the north shore and south shore regions of the city, each of which has its own unique personality. If you get tired of walking along the seafront you can simply catch a tram - a feature of Blackpool since 1885 - or relax in Stanley Park.
