Days out in Blackpool

Kids need to burn off excess energy? Take them to Blackpool Tower. If they’re still nipping your head after Sealife and the circus, scare them into submission at the dungeon or The Big One rollercoaster - get your Blackpool Pleasure Beach tickets.

But if you’re here on a stag or hen do, Blackpool takes on a whole new dimension. Like throwing shapes to retro tunes at Popworld. Bouncing around at bubble football. Or (for arty types) a spot of nude life drawing. And why not?

Treat yourself to some ice cream (and paracetamol) to recover after all that and take a wonder down the Promenade. After all these years, Blackpool’s still got a bit of magic in the air.
