Visit Blackpool


Blackpool is the UK's favourite seaside resort ...

... and with so much happening here at the moment, there has never been a better time to visit us!

There are so many things to do in Blackpool, you really will be spoilt for choice.  Where else can you enjoy panoramic views of the coastline from an iconic Tower, ride on the UK’s tallest rollercoaster, or dance in beautiful ballrooms and enjoy world class shows, all in one resort.

Throughout the year, a series of fantastic events means that there is always something going on for you to enjoy.  In the Autumn we switch on the famous Blackpool Illuminations, they provide an amazing sparkling spectacle right through to November.

For approved accommodation, information on attractions, full events listings plus everything you could need to help you enjoy your stay with us, please visit or call 01253 478222.


After more than 130 years in private ownership Blackpool Council purchased the Winter Gardens in March 2010. Funding for the purchases and investment was secured from European Regional Development Fund, Homes and Communities Agency, Northwest Regional Development Agency and Blackpool Council. Following acquisition the Winter Gardens has undergone some major refurbishment including extensive work to the entrances, Dome and Floral Hall, and the opening of the two new dining options – The Mazzei Café and The Empress Grill Room. More projects are in discussion. The Winter Gardens is operated on behalf of Blackpool Council by Crown Entertainment Centres Ltd.
