    Fabulous Zoo !! Staff were very enthusiastic , especially at Elephant Base camp , which was amazing . There are six elephants and the wonderful staff member who gave the talk told us everything about them . Would highly recommend the free talks ! Tiger was superb too especially as you can see him through a large pane of glass as he walks about ! Wolves were out in there enclosure too and they are awesome and have a wonderful home . Sea Lion display was nice to witness . It was cold but it was worth the visit . The Lakeside cafe is a great refuge and staff very pleasant in there too . A delight ! 🐘🐯🐺🦭

    We were only in Blackpool for a couple of days and hadn’t done any research on the trams.

    When we jumped on one for the first time the conductor took the time to explain that, if we were planning more than one journey, the most economical way was to buy a £6 day ticket. The trams are clean and comfortable and the information provided whilst onboard is excellent.

    As they run every 15 minutes for the 12 miles from Starr Gate to Fleetwood the trams are an excellent way to get around.

    I visited the Tower Eye (the top of the tower) and the Ballroom. Both experiences were very good!
    The gift shop was a bit scarce, but the staff were very friendly and helpful.

    We spent a most enjoyable hour on a wet and windy day watching the dancing and listening to music in the ballroom. Really beautiful and well worth a visit!

    Not as good as a few years ago, got rid of a lot of stuff and replaced it either a lot of Marvel which not everybody likes. I love that they have the weeping angel now their that was a wicked suprise! Wanted to do the hand wax with me and partner but not allowed so wasn't happy about that. Still a good few hours out

    Finished this in just over 40 minutes. Wasn't particularly big. Good exhibits though and busier than expected for a midweek day in September. The full price ticket doesn't represent great value for money

    Very good water park. Very clean and was very quiet when we visited during school time. The kids loved it, as did the adults. We can't wait to visit again.

    Stanley Park is a beautiful addition to Blackpool. I am very proud of it. The groundskeepers do an amazing job.

    We went to see Everybody’s talking about Jamie at the end of November and it was brilliant. We sat in the grand circle, row K I think. Good view of all the stage and of the actors and actresses. Brilliant sound too. Just a little too far away for us to be able to tell facial expressions. Really lovely local ice cream although a tad expensive!

    Worth the admission to see this incredible theatre that opened in 1894. The Victorian architect Frank Matcham's brief, was to build the "prettiest theatre in the land” he certainly achieved that. The staff are friendly and helpful, I am registered visually impaired and found the directions/assistance to locate my seat helpful. The toilets were clean. Finally the show we saw.. the haunting of Blaine manor was excellent. So much so that a fellow theatre goer was back for a second viewing. The cast and production team rightly deserved the standing ovation we gave. The Blackpool grand theatre is on my list of must return to entertainment venues when I return to Blackpool

    We really enjoyed spending some time having a read of the carpet, since we definitely found some funny quotes and also many classics. It's clearly maintained very well as it looks pristine and also looks great from the Blackpool Tower Eye. I would definitely recommend this if you have a bit of time to kill during your visit!

    Seemingly better and more lights than last year. Great from the Cleveleys end, a bit sparse in the middle then good towards the Pleasure Beach.
