Fun and history with a Blackpool Vacation Rental
Blackpool, one of the UK’s most popular resorts, is famous for its iconic attractions and classic seaside charm. Millions of people visit the coastal town to enjoy sights such as Blackpool Tower and the three piers. Another highlight is Blackpool Pleasure Beach, one of England’s best theme parks. Those who stay in a Blackpool vacation rental can experience all these attractions, as well as enjoy a seaside atmosphere that is all about wholesome family fun.
Getting to your Blackpool Vacation Rental
There are multiple options for reaching Blackpool, depending on your starting destination. While Blackpool does have its own airport, it is not served by many flight routes and most people find it more convenient to fly into nearby Liverpool or Manchester and then continue their journey via the M6 and M55.
It’s possible to reach your Blackpool vacation rental from nearby towns and cities via public transport, but generally the easiest way is to have your own car and arrive there according to your own schedule. If you want to travel by train, you can take the direct service from Manchester Piccadilly, Manchester Victoria, Liverpool Lime Street, or York.
Weather in Blackpool
Summers are generally characterised by warm weather and winter by chilly, windy days. In the winter, the cosy dark nights make a great backdrop for the famous Blackpool Illuminations. Make sure you have some waterproof clothing during your stay in a Blackpool vacation home however, as rain can occur throughout the year.
The most popular attraction is Blackpool Tower, which has stood tall since 1894. Harking back to a former time, it encompassed a glitzy ballroom and a circus, both located at the base. The star feature of this structure is its observation deck, which provides great views of the surrounding area. A visit to the observation deck means you’ll also learn about the tower’s history.
The piers are another iconic part of Blackpool. There are three in total, each lively and inviting. The North Pier is more relaxed, perfect for strolling along with the family, while the South and Central piers feature the usual seaside staples of arcade games, stalls, rides, and even a Ferris wheel. A visit to one of the piers should be high up on any itinerary.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach brings in millions of visitors each year. This excellent theme park has the most roller coasters in Europe, the most famous of which is ‘The Big One’, reaching heights of 65 m and speeds of 75 mph. They’re not all so adrenaline inducing, however, with many family friendly rides on site, as well as fun activities such as adventure golf, a haunted house, an ice rink, and a Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum.
Head a little outside the center and you'll find many attractions, such as Blackpool Dungeons and Blackpool Zoo. The latter is particularly recommended, with more than 1,500 animals being housed here, including elephants, orangutans, giraffes, gorillas, lions, and tigers.
Blackpool with Children
If you’re staying in a Blackpool vacation rental with children, you’ll be glad to know this town offers plenty of entertaintainment for the little ones too!
Sandcastle Waterworld is a good option for a fun afternoon and happens to be the UK's largest indoor water park. Here the kids can splash around, play in the wave pool, or ride the many winding slides. The best is the Master Blaster, which actually extends outside the building and then back in again. Good for kids of all ages, there are also areas designated specifically for toddlers.
For a day out that is a little different, head to Blackpool Model Village. This 2.5 acre park features small replica models of different towns and villages, and also includes a working model train that takes a journey around the park. There are events aimed at children taking place throughout the year, so with any luck there’ll be something on during your visit.
If you are traveling with children who are a little older, take them to Adrenaline Zone on the South Pier. There are plenty of gravity defying rides here, with names such as Skycoaster, Skyscreamer, and Maxibounce, which are sure to provide thrills in abundance.
A Blackpool vacation home provides you with the ideal base for your family getaway, as you take in all the fun attractions this charming coastal town has to offer.
