Blackpool is one of the UK’s best-loved beach resorts, with its famed illuminations, two world-class ballrooms and a welcoming family atmosphere. Favoured by a host of celebrities, this city boasts some of the UK’s most popular attractions:

Blackpool Tower Dungeon

This educational, entertaining and deliciously scary day out takes visitors back through 1000 years of Blackpool’s most blood-curdling history!

Guests will undergo some truly terrifying ordeals, such as escaping the mirror maze of horrors and discovering the gruesome truth about torture instruments of old times. They can then stand trial against the high judge at the old Blackpool court and be sentenced to death on the Extremis drop ride. Definitely not for the faint-hearted!


Blackpool Tower Eye

A breathtaking new viewing experience from the top of the famous Blackpool Tower, with panoramic views stretching as far as Manchester, Cumbria and the Isle of Man.

Visitors to the Tower Eye will experience Blackpool’s first ever 4D Cinema, which surrounds the audience with sights, smells, sounds and weather effects. Guests are then invited to step onto the SkyWalk, a glass walkway that gives you a birds-eye view of the city, before marvelling at the Eye’s incredible, floor-to-ceiling views across Blackpool and beyond.

Madame Tussauds


This star-studded attraction will bring guests face-to-face with astonishingly lifelike waxworks of our biggest stars.

The world-famous Madame Tussauds is one of Blackpool’s hottest attractions and is situated right next to the famous Blackpool Tower. Visitors can look forward to meeting sporting heroes such as David Beckham and Lewis Hamilton, musical icons like Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga and Blackpool originals including Ken Dodd, Benny Hill and Barbara Windsor.

Sea Life Centre


Take a journey under the sea and meet some incredible and often endangered marine creatures at Blackpool’s Sea Life Centre.

Visitors to the Centre can look forward to seeing sharks, seahorses, octopuses and a host of other spectacular sea life while remaining completely dry! Sea Life Centre experts are close at hand with all kinds of interesting facts and information about the creatures, many of which are rare or rescued.
