Mini Travel Guide to Blackpool
Thrill seekers should head straight to Blackpool’s Pleasure Beach. It is packed with more than 125 rides including one of Europe’s tallest roller coasters. Alongside the many ferociously fast, white-knuckle rides are more sedate attractions including arcades and rides for younger children.
Blackpool Tower offers yet more family attractions including an aquarium, circus and 3D cinema. Views from the top of the tower are also impressive. For less vertiginous panoramas, take a stroll to the end of the North Pier, which extends almost a quarter of a mile into the North Sea, for views of Blackpool’s promenade. If the weather takes a turn for the worse, head to Blackpool’s Sea Life Centre which is home to one of the largest collections of tropical sharks in Europe.
