Beaches

There’s nothing quite like a day at the seaside, and Blackpool is one of the best beach resorts you will find in the UK. It was even recently awarded its first ever Blue Flag, putting it on par with other world renowned sites including the Mediterranean Sea and the Pacific coastline.

The whole family will love relaxing in the sun, taking a dip in the sea and enjoying an ice cream along the promenade here in Blackpool. There is plenty of space for sandcastles, sunbathing and family games, so you really can make a day of it.

Of course, Blackpool is also the only British beach resort to boast three fabulous piers, so don’t forget to pay these a visit as part of your day at the beach.

Let’s take a look at what you’ll find along Blackpool’s famous Golden Mile.

Enjoy the Great Promenade Show! A giant mirror ball will leave you reflecting on an aesthetically pleasing stretch of rejuvenated promenade at South Beach. It’s part of the Great Promenade Show where some of the country’s top artists and designers have created two kilometres  of gobsmacking sculptures and lighting. It’s certainly a break from the norm for Blackpool, but one that has gone down a storm with visitors.

Mixing with our old-school seaside resort, Blackpool’s gone all continental with its own Spanish-style Steps. When the town redesigned its sea defences, in a project totalling £80m, it did so in style, with the creation of six new headlands, sculpted spaces and the Spanish Steps leading down to the sea. When in Blackpool, do as the Romans do!
