Blackpool’s Pleasure Beach amusement park presents the tourist with a wide variety of rides, whilst the beach itself is a sandy paradise for relaxation. The three piers stretching out from the beach offer a range of shops and yet more amusements and rides, whilst those who prefer water fun are catered for in the Sandcastle Park near the South Pier.

Blackpool’s famous Illuminations light up the seafront between August and November, 11 kilometres of display lights. A tram ride is another essential during a visit here; they date back to 1885 and still running throughout the town. The fun theme of the town continues into the evening with theatres and variety shows to visits, and numerous restaurants catering for all tastes. Exhibitions not to be missed include Madame Tussauds and Dr Who. Blackpool now boasts its own Gay Pride celebration, and there is a proliferation of gay bars and clubs in the town, welcoming that sector of the community.
