Blackpool is the perfect seaside destination in the North West of England for a family trip with plenty of activities to keep you busy. One of the most popular attractions is the Blackpool Pleasure Beach theme park with over 125 rides that all age groups can enjoy. Nickelodeon Land is the most recent addition to the pleasure beach with 12 fantastic rides to entertain the children. If you are a little more daring you can experience 'Infusion' one of the tallest and fastest roller coasters in the UK.
You could spend the day in the famous Blackpool Tower with so much to see and do. Experience a short film in the amazing 4D cinema or enjoy the breathtaking Skywalk where you can view Blackpool at every angle in the floor to ceiling glass walkway. There is something exciting to do on every floor of the tower such as sharing some laughs at the circus, watch graceful dancers in the ballroom, let the kids run wild in Jungle Jims or give yourself a fright in the Tower Dungeons!
The newest point of interest at the busy seaside resort is the Comedy Carpet where you can chuckle at your favourite comedians jokes such as Peter Kay, Morecambe and Wise and many more. With famous quotes spread across the concrete outside of the tower, it is certainly something to put a smile on your face!
On a bright and sunny day the promenade is the place to be. There are plenty of shops with souvenirs such as different flavoured rock, postcards and kiss me quick hats. There are also three separate piers offering fairground games and rides along with bars and restaurants with stunning views across the sea.
If it is too wet and windy to hit the beach for a swim in the sea you might want to explore Sandcastles, the UK's largest indoor water park. With the most thrilling chutes, lazy rivers, wave machine and slides you can have a thrilling experience that will occupy you and the family for the day.
For night time entertainment you can enjoy a show at the historical Grand Theatre or Winter Gardens. With beautiful ballets, hilarious pantomimes or exciting concerts taking place, there will be something to entertain everyone.
Why not end your evening with a lovely stroll along the prom taking in the illuminations with a delicious bag of fish and chips as Blackpool tradition. With hundreds of light displays to entertain you for 10 kilometres it is a must-see attraction during the seasonal months.
Blackpool is in an ideal location in the North with accessible transport links to larger cities such as Manchester or Preston. You could also go further afield by using Blackpool's own airport.
