Attractions

The many attractions in Blackpool are easily accessible from The Carlton, in Albert Road: The Tower, the 7 miles of sand, the Pleasure Beach, its all here...

When you think of Blackpool, fun and entertainment spring to mind. Whether its Bingo or Ballroom dancing there is no doubt we are the entertainment capital of the North.

With such a wide variety of things to suit all age groups, it is no wonder so many people want to come back again and again.

You can stroll along the promenade, build sand castles on the beach, or visit our many attractions such as the Zoo and The Tower - for the real thrill seekers there is also the world famous Pleasure beach.

If you fancy taking in a show we have the fabulous Grand Theatre or the Winter Gardens as well as shows on all 3 piers, not forgetting to mention the spectacular shows put on by the Pleasure Beach including Mystic, Eclipse and the Hot Ice Show. One thing is for sure you will never be bored!
