Blackpool Golden Mile Beach

The Blackpool Golden Mile is the central stretch of sand and promenade that runs between Blackpool’s north and south piers and has been famous as the home of British seaside culture for over a century. Blackpool is the only town in the United Kingdom with three piers.

Blackpool became a major holiday destination, fueled by the Lancashire textile workers with the arrival of the railway in 1846. The growth of visitors continued in the inter-war years. But the post-war decline of the Lancashire textile industry and the arrival of cheap package holidays meant many of Blackpool’s traditional visitors headed off on planes.

Today, Blackpool’s many attractions coupled with its good road communications continue to make it a popular destination with a large proportion being day-trippers.
