“Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!” Known for its ‘Kiss-Me-Quick’ hats, sticks of rock and the ubiquitous fish and chips, Blackpool has all this and more! With miles of golden sands, stunning Victorian architecture, a host of entertainment for young and old alike and with the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District right on the doorstep, Blackpool is undoubtedly the unofficial entertainment capital of the North!
