If you are looking for a weekend break that is packed full of fun and offering a wide range of places to go to, then Blackpool should be high on your list.
Blackpool is not necessarily known for its glamor, but does have a great pier, fair suitable for all ages and if you go in or after October, you can see the whole area lit up with an array of beautiful lights.
Whilst staying in Blackpool you could visit one of the many attractions such as Blackpool tower, Madame Tussauds, Blackpool pleasure beach and Blackpool Zoo.
There really is something for all the family regardless of what interests you. A stay in an average hotel in Blackpool for the weekend (Friday and Saturday night) is £50 – £100 per night, meaning that it is within most people’s budget. Blackpool may not be as romantic as Paris or as picturesque as Edinburgh but certainly is a great place to visit for the weekend.
