Blackpool & East Lancs Railway

Resort - Blackpool

Overview

Few resorts anywhere in the world can rival the popularity of Blackpool - Britain's Capital of Fun! The world famous Tower, three piers, miles of golden sands, the spectacular Pleasure Beach with its breathtaking "white knuckle" rides, horse drawn carriages, a Sealife Centre, Madame Tussaud’s Waxworks, a Zoo Park, an Art Gallery - Blackpool has them all. But save some of your energy for the evening and sample the terrific summer shows, lively bars and pubs, for it is at night that Blackpool really stands out as the most exciting of all Britain's resorts. For a complete contrast to the sheer energy of Blackpool, some of the most serene scenery in Britain include the Ribble Valley and the Lake District nearby.
