A Short Break in Blackpool


If you want to take a short break in Blackpool, there are a variety of different attractions to satisfy the whole family, and a great range of accommodation too. For a couple, why not try a bed and breakfast in Blackpool. They provide a much cozier atmosphere than a hotel and can be found near some of the town's more popular attractions.

The price for a room at a bed and breakfast in Blackpool is usually very reasonable and, of course, it includes breakfast!

You can stay within a mile of the tower and circus, ride the tramway to Fleetwood and see all of the sites along the way.

Blackpool's tramway is the only surviving example of first-generation double-decker electric 'balloon' trams. Dating back to 1885, a ride on the tram is like a step back in time.

Even if your short break in Blackpool will only be for a couple of days, you must make time to visit the Tower. The ballroom and the circus are famous throughout the world.

The tower itself is simply beautiful. Inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, it is 158 meters tall. The view from the top includes the three piers, the many parks, the beach and of course, the ocean.

During the summer months, the beach and the amusement parks are the most popular attractions, but a short break in Blackpool during the off-season allows you to see the tower lights, visit the famous Louis Tussauds Waxworks, take in a performance at the theatre or the Odeon Cinema, all without fighting the crowds and traffic.

Finding a bed and breakfast in Blackpool during the late autumn and winter months is easy and the rates are even lower than in summer. Your choices also include guest houses and refurbished small hotels, with historical appeal. Regular visitors enjoy the personal service that this type of accommodation offers.

There are also many things to do and see in the surrounding countryside of Lancashire. Everything from taking a leisurely stroll in the country, to the adrenalin rush of Microlight flying which is a popular activity in the area! If shopping is in your plans, you can walk from your bed and breakfast in Blackpool to dozens of shops, farmer's markets and enclosed shopping centres.

Enjoy the unique art and culture that the area is famous for, and why not dine in an award-winning restaurant right under the tower?

A short break in Blackpool can be an unforgettable experience, and it's easy to make travel arrangements, plan your trip and reserve your accommodation online.
