As the most famous seaside town in the north of England, Blackpool is visited throughout the year. Visitors particularly enjoy its beaches, piers, infamous fish and chip shops and Blackpool tower. The city’s iconic lights are also an attraction within themselves.
Blackpool resists fashions with a resolute faith in the traditional allure of a colorful and vibrant British seaside resort. The coastal town, in the northwest of England, endures typical Lancashire weather, where you can experience four seasons in a day. The only predictable element is that it will rain at some point, although this just provides an excuse to get indoors and catch a show. It's an undeniably seasonal place, where the full-on Blackpool experience can only be sampled between June and September. A British summer will offer the chance to enjoy the beach, take in one of the summer season's comedy, magic or music shows, visit the Tower and join the lines for fish and chips on the seafront. Once most of the vacationers have returned to work or school at the end of August, the town enjoys a new lease of life with the Illuminations. This spectacular light show, using over a million bulbs, begins at the end of the summer season and continues into November. Visitors who haven't managed a week's summer break in Blackpool can make amends with an evening visit in the fall to witness the light show.
