I remember the grand allure of the Blackpool Tower and the Blackpool Illuminations light festival as a kid. And then there was The Big One: a sky-high rollercoaster that I didn’t dare ride but watched as my siblings did. I told everyone at school I’d been on it. I also wasn’t brave enough to admit that I hadn’t.
Flash forward to today and I still won’t ride The Big One, but there are plenty of other attractions that see me coming back to visit. Whether it’s the classic seaside sights or the modern highlights that I’ve only discovered recently, I’ll be showing you the best places to visit and my favourite Blackpool hotels to stay in while you’re here.
