Blackpool is certainly not short of attractions, entertainment or things to do, however, commercialisation and the poor cleanliness of its beaches have unfortunately pulled this former 'Britains number 1' tourist spot well down the list of British holiday destinations. So much so, that despite Blackpool being a seaside resort, the majority of visitors don't venture onto the Beach and stick with the huge number of varied attractiions around the area.

Despite it's decline in Beach appeal, Blackpool hasn't lost any of its life, quite the opposite, Blackpool has just about more character and life than any other seaside town in the UK. There is something for everyone from the very young to the significant senior and is a big hit with families due to its diversity of attractions.

Accommodation in Blackpool is B&B's, Guesthouses, budget hotels predominantely, with the higher class hotel dotted around.

Daytime activities are in abundance and suit the full family. Most popular is the theme park called the Pleasure Beach, but, a wide variety and volume of attractions are lined up along the seafront.
