The Seaside Series Part 3: Blackpool

  • 1,795 British pounds
  • The Big Blue Hotel, Blackpool

Service Description

From Lincolnshire we travel west to Lancashire for the third stop of our seaside series, where Blackpool sits on the edge of the Irish Sea. Blackpool has an impressive 7-mile-long sandy beach which has been attracting tourists since the mid 1800s. The first stagecoach route between Manchester and Blackpool began in 1781 leading to the transformation of Blackpool from a tiny hamlet with a population of just 500 people to a town of over 2500 people by 1851 and approximately 150,000 residents at the last census. Like many of our other seaside resorts, the arrival of the railway in the 1840s led to a massive boost in tourism and further increases in population. One of the town’s most famous landmarks is Blackpool Tower which was built in 1894 and was the tallest building in the British Empire at that time. Blackpool is of course also famed for its illuminations. The town also has the only first-generation tramway remaining in the UK. Blackpool is such an iconic seaside destination that it is the ideal place to complete our seaside series. With its range of locations, attractions and classic holiday resort features, Blackpool will provide plenty of opportunities to capture the essence of the Great British Seaside.
