The Blackpool Tower
The Blackpool Tower opened on 14th May 1894, so this year it’s celebrating its 125th birthday!
Its must see features include:
The Tower Ballroom –Recognisable to millions of fans of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing this beautifully designed arena allows you to either view or participate in ballroom dancing, listen to some great old tunes from the Wurlitzer organ, and enjoy a drink from the bar or treat yourself and your loved ones to afternoon tea.
The Tower Circus –Mooky and Mr. Boo and other fun characters will wow and delight you with jaw dropping stunts and comedy capers. These world class circus performers have been wowing audiences for the last 20 years bringing all of the traditional clown escapades into a modern show. Please note that during winter months the circus stages a pantomime instead of the regular show.
Top of the Tower &4D Experience –Dare you step on to the Walk of Faith? Or will you freeze up against the wall as young children put you to shame by jumping up and down on the glass? Come what may it’s 380ft to the ground! Back inside the friendly seagull will guide and sweep you across the sights of Blackpool in the 4D experience.
The Winter Gardens
The Winter Gardens is a large entertainment complex which includes a theatre, a ballroom and conference facilities.
It’s a Grade II listed building which opened in 1878, so it even pre-dates the Blackpool Tower!
It has hosted events such as the Blackpool Dance Festival since its inception in 1920, and the World Matchplay darts competition since 1994.
Highlights appearing throughout 2019 include Alfie Boe, Jason Manford, John Bishop, Michael Ball, Jane McDonald, the Rocky Horror Show, Diversity, Kinky Boots The Musical, Blood Brothers The Musical and the Strictly Come Dancing Professional Dancers.
Funny Girls is a burlesque cabaret show bar literally two minutes away from our hotel.
The cast are led by legendary Royal Variety performer Betty Legs Diamond who choreographs a troupe of male dancers and drag performers. In their new show for Spring 2019 Betty and her boys are taking you on a whirlwind tour of stage and screen –from the suave glamour of James Bond, to the cheeky fun and energy of Chicago.
DJ Zoe is your compere who keeps everyone in check whilst you sing along, clap along, enjoy a drink and have a good old knees up.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Blackpool Pleasure Beach is an amusement park that was founded in 1896.
It is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the United Kingdom, and one of the top twenty most visited amusement parks in the world, with a peak estimate of 5.5 million visitors per year.
The park is host to many records, including the largest number of roller coasters of any park in the United Kingdom with ten, of which four are wooden:the Big Dipper, Blue Flyer, Grand National and Nickelodeon Streak.
Many of the roller coasters in the park are record breaking attractions. When it opened in 1994, the Big One was the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world. It was also the steepest, with an incline angle of 65°and one of the longest, measuring 5,497 ft. Currently, the ride holds the record as the tallest roller coaster in the United Kingdom, standing at 213 ft. with a first drop of 205 ft.
In 2016 the park introduced Red Arrows Sky Force, a Gerstlauer Sky Fly thrill ride which is the first ride of its kind in the United Kingdom. The latest record is taken by Icon, a multi-launch coaster manufactured by Mack Rides in Germany. Icon is the first coaster in the UK to feature a double launch and is the largest ever single investment at the park costing £16.25 million.
Three Piers, some donkeys and a lovely sandy beach
What could be more traditional at a sea side than these three? So why not put on your Kiss me Quick hat, chew on a piece of Blackpool rock, take off your shoes, feel the sand between your toes and have a paddle in the sea.
