Blackpool is a seaside town on England's Irish Sea coast. This is a traditional seaside resort with great sandy beaches sitting between Victorian Piers.
But Blackpool is not just about the beach but offers all year round family entertainment. Some of the attractions include the amusement park Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the landmark Blackpool Tower offers a circus, a glass viewing platform and the Tower Ballroom, and Blackpool Illuminations light up the long promenade.
