With barely more than seven hours of daylight in December and early January, Blackpool's winter days are wet, cold, and over before dinnertime. But locals don’t let the weather keep them cooped up indoors, and neither should you, so layer up and get exploring.
Travel back in time at the 19th-century Blackpool Winter Garden, still the hottest ticket in town. The ornate opera house, theater, and ballroom host tons of live events throughout the year, including winter.
Thrills aren’t off the list in wintertime. Blackpool’s Pleasure Beach—home to the U.K.’s tallest roller coaster—opens on weekends in February. As a bonus, lines for rides are way shorter than in the summer.
Thousands of visitors pack the streets each year for Blackpool Illuminations, when the seaside twinkles with more than a million lights. Even in crummy weather, the festive displays add a warming wintery glow.
One of the busiest months of the year, March is the unofficial start of high season in Blackpool. Families with students on spring holidays begin to flood the streets at the first hint of warm weather. You may not bust out your swimsuit yet, but the seaside still has plenty to do.
March is one of Blackpool’s driest months, making it a great time to stroll along the seaside promenade and explore the carnival atmosphere on its trio of famous piers.
Fewer clouds this season translates to clear, jaw-dropping views from the top of Blackpool Tower in March and early April.
Mild weather makes it a great time to hop around the historic tram routes that wind their way through the Blackpool area. These streetcars date back 50 to 120 years, and each carves a different circuit through town.
One of England’s most popular beach destinations, Blackpool is jam-packed during the summer months. Sure, there might be a couple of downpours, but those seeking a proper beach getaway don’t mind a handful of rainy days from June through August.
With plenty of blue-sky days and temperatures at their warmest, this is the season to stake out a spot on Blackpool’s beaches.
Families on school vacation should get to know the 1,300+ animals—including a massive tortoise named Darwin— at Blackpool Zoo, which sits just east of sprawling Stanley Park.
Go bar hop from one end of Blackpool’s waterfront promenade to the other with the fun-loving summertime crowd that descends upon the city.
Crowds thin out this time of year as the summer buzz fades, but Blackpool still has plenty to do. And those travelers that don’t mind throwing on a jacket will discover a calmer vibe with more locals in the mix.
Get out of town on a day trip to the Martin Mere Wetlands. October is the best time of year to watch thousands of birds descend upon the area as they return from the Arctic to roost for the winter.
Ghosts and ghouls emerge every October, when haunted houses and terror-filled tours offer lots of spine-chilling fun.
Looking for fall foliage? You’ll find it on full display in Stanley Park, which turns gorgeous shades of copper and gold.
Where to stay
- BlackpoolTravelling with the whole fam? The South Shore is perfect for parents looking to keep the children busy and entertained. The aptly named Pleasure Beach—home to the U.K.’s tallest coaster—and Sandcastle Waterpark anchor this neighbourhood, along with classic kid favourites like Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Hotels are everywhere, and one of the city’s main train stations is nearby.Read more
- BisphamIf you’re looking for a proper village vibe, Bispham is for you. Blackpool’s major sights are mostly to the south, so the general vibe here is more laid-back and cosy. The beach and promenade also tend to be less mobbed. And when you’re looking to rejoin the crowds, Blackpool’s trams make it easy to get to the city centre.Read more
- BlackpoolWhile the South Shore caters to families, Blackpool Central is a playground for grown-ups. Endless pubs and restaurants surround the area, and the city’s historic Winter Garden hosts big-ticket shows and concerts year round. Central Pier—one of the town’s most popular landmarks—and the Blackpool Tower offer prime photo-ops with views of Blackpool’s extended shoreline.Read more
- Lytham St Anne'sDirectly south of Blackpool, Lytham St. Anne’s is home to four golf courses, for those looking to stay active on their beachside holiday. Off the links, beautiful greenspaces and gardens offer ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors away from the buzz of the beaches. But, of course, being on the coast, St. Anne’s Beach and Pier are traveller favourites for family-friendly fun.Read more
Hotels near the sights
- The Blackpool TowerOnce the U.K.’s tallest structure, Blackpool Tower still dominates the skyline and makes for a good meetup point. It’s located on the beach in Central, the city’s nightlife and entertainment district. Smaller hotels fill out the area just north of the tower, and Blackpool North Station is nearby.Read more
- Blackpool Pleasure BeachFamilies flock to Pleasure Beach, one of the most famous amusement parks in the U.K. The Big One coaster is its claim to fame, but there are plenty of other opportunities to scream your lungs out. The surrounding South Shore neighbourhood is Blackpool’s best bet for those with children in tow, and the seaside promenade is a great place to stroll.Read more
- Central PierNot far from Blackpool Tower, Central Pier is one of the city’s entertainment hubs. Despite all the action nearby, the vibe south of the pier is a bit less rowdy, making it a great option for travellers who want to be near the action, but not right in the thick of it.Read more
- Stanley ParkBlackpool may be known for its coastline and promenade, but it has many beautiful greenspaces to explore. Opened in 1926, Stanley Park’s scenic walks, ornamental and rose gardens have delighted visitors for decades. The park includes many options for other outdoor activities as well, including a golf course and cricket grounds.Read more
