Escape with us...to Blackpool

There’s something about a day trip to the seaside that turns the simple things into magical memories – from donkey rides, to paddles in the sea, or building a sandcastle and enjoying an ice cream on a sunny day.

Blackpool is home to one of Britain's most iconic seafronts. Its regenerated promenade, tramway, three piers, iconic Tower and illuminations are part of the great British seaside tradition.

Along the seafront, you’ll stumble across bars that rival any continental beach resort. The views across the Irish Sea, looking out towards the Welsh mountains, the Isle of Man and the Lakeland fells, are stunning – and even better, they’re all free.
If you don't fancy emptying sand from your shoes on the train home, Blackpool has plenty more to offer. Whether it’s white-knuckle thrills at award-winning theme parks, or a year-round programme of world-class shows and concerts, Blackpool has everything you need for the perfect seaside escape.

If you’re keen to venture further afield, head down the Fylde Coast towards neighbouring Lytham and St Annes. You’ll find some quieter spots, perfect to soak up the waterfront vibe.
