Virtual Blackpool

Welcome to Virtual Blackpool - the Internet gateway into Britain's undisputed capital of entertainment. The biggest and most popular seaside resort in Europe, Blackpool offers just about everything a holidaymaker can wish for. Everyone has heard of the Blackpool Tower and the Golden Mile, but there's so much more to offer.



Start with the Pleasure Beach, the single biggest tourist attraction in Britain with six and a half million visitors a year. Visit the animals at Blackpool Zoo, or take a ride on one of the famous trams. Visit the Winter Gardens and the Opera House, take in the three piers, and there's still so much more to see and do.

In the autumn, the Blackpool Illuminations stretch for over 5 miles, transforming the Promenade into a wonderland of colour.

This year, the Blackpool illuminations will be switched on by Peter Kay, and will run from Friday 29th August to Sunday 9th November 2014.

The town can get incredibly busy, so it's best to book your hotel as early as possible.
