Seaside Resort that Never Sleeps

Over 12 million people visit Blackpool each year, making it Britain’s top holiday resort and one of its most visited cities overall, second only to London.
Venture out of the city with trips to Preston (Turbary Woods Owl and Bird of Prey Sanctuary & Yamba UK), Lancaster (Lancaster Priory Church, Lancaster Castle, &more) and St Peter's Church (in Heysham). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, make a splash at Sandcastle Waterpark, meet the residents at Blackpool Zoo, and see the interesting displays at Madame Tussauds Blackpool.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Blackpool online travel planner.

New York City, USA to Blackpool is an approximately 10-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from New York City to Blackpool due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from New York City in October, with highs in Blackpool at 58°F and lows at 47°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) to allow enough time to fly back home.

Less touristed than its neighbor and friendly rival Yorkshire, the county of Lancashire is often remembered as one of the focal points of the Industrial Revolution. Despite its industrial heritage and heavy urbanization, this region offers numerous vacation ideas, not the least of which is the sweeping countryside dotted with thriving towns and quaint villages. Though this region contains Blackpool, long considered one of the country’s prime seaside resorts, many travelers avoid holidays in the bustling urban centers and head for the region’s largely unspoiled and secluded rural areas. Lancashire’s hidden gem is the Forest of Bowland, internationally renowned for its heather moorland, blanket bog, and rare birds.
