Things to do in Blackpool
When you think of Blackpool, images of beaches, donkey rides and fish-and-chip shops might be what first pop into your mind. But this coastal town in the northwest of England holds much more than just that. With the UK's tallest rollercoaster, The Big One, the famous Blackpool Tower observation point and a branch of the world-renowned Madame Tussauds, Blackpool is a hive of fun. Whether you visit to lie on the beach, splash about at Sandcastle Waterpark or take a dive into culture at its fantastic theatres, you're in for a real treat.
