Blackpool Illuminations

Pleasure Beach

Blackpool Pleasure BeachWhen it comes to full-on excitement, look no further than the UK's officially-busiest tourist attraction - Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

More than six million revellers flock to this 42-acre thrill-seeker's paradise every year, and no wonder, with its 10 rollercoasters, famous white-knuckle rides and countless other brilliant attractions for kids of all ages.


The Tower

Blackpool TowerDominating Blackpool Promenade, of course, is the 518-foot Blackpool Tower which houses a magnificent ballroom, and an undercover playground with floor upon floor of amazing adventures from the all-action coloured ball pools of Jungle Jim's to the grace and splendour of the beautiful Victorian ballroom.

An all-inclusive admission price gives you access to all this plus evening entertainment in the ballroom and a highly-prized seat in rococo surroundings for the award winning Tower Circus.

Finally, right at the Tower top you are invited to tear yourself away from the amazing views inland and over the Irish Sea and step out onto the Walk of Faith where a section of the floor has been replaced with clear reinforced glass giving visitors a perfect view......320 feet down!!!


The tower, now fully refurbished featuring The Blackpool Dungeon and Blackpool Tower Eye are now open!

The Zoo

Why not take your little monkeys for what has to be one of the resort's best-value days out at Blackpool Zoo? which - on the voting of visitors - is a holder of Attraction of the Year from Blackpool's Tourism Awards. The zoo is home to scores of species including lions, tigers, elephants, otters, even an army of tiny ants. Look out too for Lemur Wood and the award-winning Gorilla Mountain.

There's also a restaurant and picnic site, a Wild West miniature train and an adventure playground! Parking is free.
