Trains to Blackpool bring day trippers, families and fun-seekers alike to enjoy this seaside town. The biggest tourist draw in the UK, Blackpool is fun for all the family with its combination of Victorian seaside attractions and white-knuckle thrills.
A day out at this Northern seaside resort guarantees you a good old-fashioned day of fun. You can leisurely wander the salt-soaked planks of the Victorian piers, scream at the top of your lungs from a whooshing rollercoaster, or sit back and take it all in from one of the historic Blackpool trams.
Over six million people travel to Blackpool each year to visit two of the town’s largest attractions, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Blackpool Tower. Although, there are plenty of other smaller attractions to keep you busy with the three piers, numerous amusement arcades, seven miles of beaches and a vibrant nightlife. Whilst many tourists go to Blackpool nowadays for party weekends, an older clientele also enjoy the nostalgia of the town.
The Blackpool Illuminations light show extends tourist season into the autumn months. The Tower Ballroom remains a global hotspot for ballroom dancing and the Empress Ballroom is a popular venue for live music acts. Whether it’s for a family adventure or for endless entertainment, Blackpool rocks!
