Blackpool has a long history of providing fun-filled family holidays to the Lancashire coast and is famous for the electric trams which have been transporting visitors up and down the Promenade for over 100 years. The glittering ‘Golden Mile’ runs between the North and South Piers with plenty of amusement arcades, night clubs, cafes and attractions to suit all visitors. Take a trip to the Blackpool Sea Life Centre and visit over 1000 sea creatures or head up Blackpool Tower for panoramic views over the town and coastline. If you are planning on visiting several attractions during your visit, The Big Ticket can help you save money on entry fees and many Blackpool B&Bs can offer discounted wristbands which help make your trip even more affordable. The town never sleeps and in the evening, there are plenty of live shows, comedy nights, musicals, theatre shows and bars to keep you entertained until the early hours. The town is easily accessed with three main train stations for those arriving by public transport or you can even fly to the resort with Blackpool International Airport located in the South Shore area of the town.
Stay in a welcoming B&B close to Blackpool Tower
Whether you are planning a trip to a show at the Grand Theatre, a visit to the top of the famous Blackpool Tower or a fun-filled stag/ hen weekend, a central Blackpool B&B puts you right in the middle of all the action and night-life. Enjoy a stay at a well appointed Promenade B&B and have all the sea-front attractions on your door-step or there are plenty of other comfortable properties set a little way back from the prom but still within easy reach of the main attractions. If you fancy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the seafront, the quieter areas of the North and South Shores are a short tram ride away or take a short drive or bus ride inland to spend the day at Blackpool Zoo which is easily accessible from central Blackpool.
