Outside of the day’s matches, you have plenty of time to explore and enjoy Blackpool for all its wonder. As you’ll be right in the heart of the action, nothing is too far away and usually within walking distance.
It is a classic seaside resort, a Victorian-era gem that attracted thousands who flocked to bathe in the sea to improve their health. By the turn of the 19th century, Blackpool was synonymous with fun. A family favourite for hundreds of years, with more and more world-class attractions being added to the list, Blackpool now welcomes over 18 million visitors each year to its shores.
There is something for everyone in Blackpool. Adrenaline junkies amongst you can enjoy the thrills and spills of the white knuckle rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Or why not visit the world-famous Blackpool Tower, one of the most loved and recognisable landmarks in the world and home to the famous Tower Ballroom, The Tower Circus, The Blackpool Tower Dungeons, The Blackpool Tower Circus, and The Blackpool Tower Eye. That’s a lot of fun packed into one building!
Those looking for an animal-mad adventure, visit Blackpool Zoo or walk amongst the sharks at SEA LIFE Blackpool. You can meet the stars at Madame Tussauds or chill out in an 84-degree sub-tropical paradise at Sandcastle Waterpark.
Or maybe something slower pace? Did you know Stanley Park was voted the UK’s best park in 2019? This Grade II listed park boasts 390 breathtaking acres of parkland. It offers a unique blend of landscape design and historical architecture.
We can’t talk about Blackpool without talking about the beach. With over 6 miles of golden sands, piers, food, and amusements, there is plenty to explore, dig, splash, and discover across the coast. If the weather is not on your side, there is plenty of indoor fun at Coral Island, full of bright lights, a monorail ride, and amusements as far as the eye can see.
You’ll never be stuck for something to do when in Blackpool, and that’s why it’s one of our favourite tournament destinations.
