Abingdon Street Market
Walls of sweet filled jars, trays of fresh seafood, local butchers, deli counters offering home-made jams and sauces. Hungry? When the delectable scents tickle your nose you will be, at Blackpool's Abingdon Street Market.
Freeport Shopping Village
Loads of big names with big discounts to match, rather nicely placed in the picturesque tranquillity of an active marina; we can't think of a better definition of "retail therapy" in Blackpool! www.freeport-fleetwood.com
All ye thrifty shoppers take note: Talbot Street Blackpool, plays host to charity shop after charity shop. Costume jewellery, vintage handbags and kitsch home wares are all just waiting to be dug out.
