Besøk Blackpool: Reiseguiden din

When it comes to British seaside resorts, Blackpool takes the biscuit. With its rickety piers and ubiquitous “chippies”, it’s a throwback to the glory days of British holidaymaking. Today, the adrenaline rush of Pleasure Beach and its lively bars brings in new generations in droves.

Ting du kan gjøre i Blackpool

Blackpools strender
Det er ikke alltid man forbinder den nordvestlige delen av England med strandliv. Strender kan imidlertid brukes til langt mer enn soling. Dette er Blackpool et godt eksempel på. Langs byens lange kyststripe finner du et stort utvalg av fornøyelsesparker, badeland, minigolfbaner, sukkerspinnboder og familievennlige spisesteder.
Blackpool Zoo
Commune with critters. This zoo has a biblical ark’s worth of beasts. Visit not-so-distant relatives on Gorilla Mountain, waddle over to the penguin pool or crane your neck to grin at a giraffe. And it doesn’t stop there – young dino-devotees can wander among prehistoric brutes, accompanied by scene-setting sound effects. Disclaimer: may not contain real-life dinosaurs.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach
The pride of Blackpool. This theme park has so many rides that the problem is knowing where to start. They range from the high-octane Big One rollercoaster right down to the cutesy Rugrats ride in Nickelodeon Land. Best of all, the Pleasure Beach comes with a thoroughly English disclaimer – if it rains for three hours straight, you can come back for free the next day.
Sandcastle Waterpark
Blackpool is a city of champions. It boasts numerous records – the world’s biggest this, the UK’s longest that. Sandcastle is one such winner – it’s no less than the UK’s largest indoor waterpark. This tangle of coloured flumes is flush with thrills and spills, including slides, a wave machine and burger bars. How else did you think you were going to stay afloat?
Blackpool South Beach
Så lenge solen er fremme, finnes det ikke noe bedre sted å være enn langs den britiske kysten. Blackpool South Beach er det perfekte stedet for hele familien – her kan dere ri på esel, bygge sandslott i den gylne sanden eller simpelthen slappe av og nyte solen på en av fluktstolene. Pass på å sjekke tidevannstidene før du kommer – når det er høyvann står nemlig hele stranden under vann!
Grand Theatre
The Grand is a beloved old theatre that offers something for every Blackpool visitor. On its stage – and in its adjacent studio – you’ll find riotous stand-up, funky musical extravaganzas, thought-provoking dramatic pieces, family pantomimes and more. Check out their listings and get ready for an evening’s entertainment, Blackpool-style.
The Opera House
Don’t be fooled by the name – this theatre isn’t really about opera any more. There is definitely a musical theme running through its productions, though – with a full complement of pop acts, musical plays and uproarious pantomimes on offer. If you enjoy tapping your foot along to a jaunty number or dabbing your eyes at a heart-rending ballad, check ahead to see what’s on here.
Blackpool Central Pier
Head to Blackpool’s Central Pier any time between June and November and you’ll be in for an entertainment extravaganza. As well as a spectacular musical show that’ll get your feet tapping, there’s a pirate-themed family bar with swashbuckling waiters on hand to spice up your visit.
The Cottage
Situated on a sleepy residential street, this cosy chippy feels worlds away from Blackpool’s crowded coastal strip. Inside, the catch of the day is paired with crisp homemade batter, secret-recipe tartare sauce and thick-cut chips made from locally grown spuds. Purists can wash their meal down with a traditional pot of tea, but there’s also a fully stocked bar.
Yorkshire Fisheries
It may be named after a rival county, but this charming chippy is the pride of the Lancashire coast. Blackpool’s oldest chip shop has been dishing out delicious fish and chips since the 1950s. Alongside traditional battered cod and haddock, Yorkshire Fisheries also serves up everything from salmon, swordfish and scampi to hearty homemade pies.
Harry Ramsden's
This legendary chippy chain first opened its doors near Leeds back in 1928. Since then it’s expanded across the UK, and this bustling Blackpool branch is one of the best-known. Situated smack bang at the bottom of Blackpool Tower, it serves a varied menu of meat and veggie options alongside its famous battered fish and thick-cut golden chips.
Blackpool Tower
Got something to say? With 25,000 LED bulbs to spell out your message, Blackpool Tower can help you tell the world (or anyone in the vicinity). Aside from its big-statement capabilities, this tower is a real box of tricks. Nippers frolic in Jungle Jim’s Playground, old timers foxtrot across the Ballroom’s sprung-wood dance floor and all comers gulp at the 315 foot-high SkyWalk.
Promenade
Blackpool Illuminations
“Let there be light”. Not only the words of Yahweh, but also those of cultural luminaries such as Dale Winton, Westlife and Red Rum, the prize racehorse. Switching on Blackpool’s lights is one of the highest honours Britain can bestow on anybody (or horse). The switch flicks and thousands of coloured bulbs turn the city into a glittering kaleidoscope from September to November.
Golden Mile, Blackpool,
Blackpool Winter Gardens
Glitz and glamour a-go-go. This entertainment complex is Blackpool’s sizzling hotspot for all things comic and musical. The Winter Gardens has been rocking audiences since 1878. The Empress Ballroom’s stage is graced by top pop acts, while the Opera House hosts full-on Broadway-style extravaganzas. Combine your trip with a meal at one of its eateries and it’ll be a smash-hit!
North Pier
North Pier is the essence of “The Great British Seaside Resort”. The rusty struts, the old-time circus lettering, the organ’s resolutely chipper melodies wafting through the sea air – this is faded Blackpool glory at its finest. Roll up, roll up for stand-up comedy and quizzes that’ll take you back to the days when Britannia’s pier-side entertainment ruled the waves.
North Promenade
Stanley Park
What’s the plan, Stan? Work off those chip-buttie calories with a stroll around Stanley Park! This park has plenty to keep you trim, taut and terrific, including sports pitches, a BMX track, playgrounds, trampolines and crazy golf. You can even take a boat out onto the lake. Once you’ve got your breath back, grab an ice cream from a kiosk. You’ve earned it!
Central Pier
The most striking feature of the Central Pier is its Big Wheel, offering break-taking views of Blackpool from 108 feet. Other attractions here include Legends Cabaret Bar and several other fairground rides.
Central Promenade
Winter Gardens
Welcome to the Winter Gardens, Blackpool, home to Europe's second largest theatre, The Opera House, and 12 self-contained venues each with their own character and unique style.
97 Church Street
South Pier
Blackpool’s South Pier is situated opposite the Pleasure Beach and reflects its funfair atmosphere. Numerous adrenaline-pumping rides are found here.
South Promenade
Sea Life Blackpool
Sea Life Blackpool aquarium is a family attraction with a Walkthrough Ocean Tunnel & over 2000 marine creatures.

A hen party consisting of naughty schoolgirls, pregnant nuns, oaps on inflatable zimmer frames and 2 lollipop ladies accosting a party of asian men of all ages who were all kitted out in suits and ties, stopping the traffic while they all crossed the road, then having a photo shoot at the north pier, the guys seemed to be loving it

Mis information by tram staff, the last tram from Starr Gate to Fleetwood is 11.45pm, we were old the trams run until 1.45am, that is the return journey to Starr Gate. Spent a freezing cold 30 minutes waiting for a tram, we did manage to get a taxi but might not be so lucky if the resort busy.

I think Blackpool is a great cheap weekend away with kids. Circus , fairground no ques like Alton towers all rides are close to each other no massive walks between rides. Food is cheap. B&bs cheap. Good old back to basics no frills family fun time. Making memories

I found that booking a family holiday to blackpool through the week instead of at weekends worked perfectly when arranging to go to the usual spots, Pleasure Beach, The Tower, Sandcastle etc.

In Blackpool, I wouldn't change anything by the beach for walking, there are long sandy beaches to stroll along, and steps/flat surface at the top for though's not wanting sandy feet.

Booking.com har spurt andre reisende:

Hva likte barna dine best ved stranden i Blackpool?

The sandy golden beaches. Was nice and clean, which makes all the difference. I also felt at ease, as there were lifeguard patrols on the beach and driving around.
