5 Top Tips For A Blackpool Trip
We’ve been spotting snowdrops here, there and everywhere recently which is getting us very excited about spring – and all the fun road trips we’ll be taking this year when the weather improves. At the top of our agenda has to be a trip to the seaside so why don’t you think about booking coach hire to Blackpool so you can check out the sights and sounds of this particularly fun seaside resort. Here are our top picks of what to see and do.
Fun for all the family, tram tours around the promenade are a great way to see the Pleasure Beach and North Pier/Tower. Tickets cost between £2-£11 (with family tickets costing £25) so it’s also an affordable way for everyone in your party to have a great time. They’re running from February 13th to 24th so if you’re in Blackpool around this time, this could be a fun way to while away a few hours.
This is a wonderful ongoing outdoor exhibition of work by some of the UK’s best artists and designers. You’ll be able to see incredible sculptures and lighting features, which are sure to wow even the harshest of art critics. It’s open 24 hours a day and is free so make sure you put it on your to-do list.
This is one of the oldest landmarks to be found in Blackpool and you’ll absolutely love the exterior of the building if you’re into your architecture. You’re also sure to love what’s inside the building, which houses a truly unique antiques and craft centre – three floors of goodies, in actual fact. It’s open seven days a week from 10:00 and is free to enter, although make sure you take cold hard cash with you since you’re sure to find bits and bobs you want to take away with you.
This highly energetic tribute show is taking place on February 25th (as well as December 1st), paying homage to the King and his world-renowned music. There’s a live ten-piece band and a cast of professional singers, with more than 30 classic songs set to be performed. Tickets cost from £12.50 and if you’re an Elvis fan, this has to be an absolute must.
You’ve got to eat while in Blackpool and the good news is that there are some wonderful restaurants, bars and cafes at your disposal. However, a must-do for us is the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, one of the most magnificent ballrooms in the world. There are themed nights put on regularly and you can go for afternoon tea here (with tea dances and a live organist!) if you’re looking for a civilised way to pass the time. Alternatively, you can just watch all the fun from the balconies above the dancefloor, with entry just £2.95 a person.
