Blackpool Coach Holidays & Tours – Why Go?
Love it or hate it Blackpool is one of the UK's favourite seaside holiday resort destinations for people of all ages. It's been one of the top destinations for many reasons and has made many attempts at re-inventing itself. A great way to get there and explore the surrounding countryside is on one of the many Blackpool Coach Holidays.
When people think about Blackpool they generally think about the Blackpool Tower, shows, fish and chips, the Promenade and amusement rides. Despite this reputation Blackpool still attracts huge numbers of visitors each year because that’s what its reputation is but it’s also so much more.

Some of the Top Blackpool Attractions
Blackpool attractions obviously include the famous Blackpool Tower , which originally opened away back in 1894 and has been the dominant landmark of the skyline since that time. Now you can step out 380 feet above Blackpool and go onto the new Skywalk with only a glass walkway separating you from the ground all 380 below you! Allow time to explore the four levels of the Blackpool Tower Eye.
The Blackpool Tower Dungeon
Making history fun, gruesome and scary at the same time as you interact with actors. Will you be found guilty in the old Blackpool court, find out about the plague and visit the torture chamber.
Madame Tussauds Blackpool
Get your photo taken with some of the country's best loved stars. How many will you famous people will you recognise? A great attraction to visit for all the family especially if the weather is not as good as it could be.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach
For the more adventurous visitors with an array of thrills on the many different rides including Europe's tallest rollercoaster ride. There are also lots of family friendly rides and shows on offer as well in this massive 42 acre site. You can also take a visit to Ripley's believe it or not, a museum of the unusual to say the least!
When the days get shorter and the nights get longer, three million visitors a year head into the light! (Not that light) The Blackpool Illuminations which lights up Blackpool generally for around 66 nights (August – November) There are many coach holidays to Blackpool with the sole purpose so that people can enjoy the lights as many people have done since 1879. Things have changed since then and there are more lights and the power source is from green electricity from renewable resources and the lights are more efficient by using special LED lights as well.
