Weekend breaks to Blackpool offer many unique attractions for travellers. In town you'll find some of Britain's best beaches, theme parks, and theatre venues.

Infusion, H20, and Grand National are also great roller coasters for thrill seekers at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
2. Blackpool Tower
The iconic Blackpool Tower rises 157m. and provides travellers with terrific panoramic views of the resort. Families travelling with children might want to check out the Victorian Blackpool Tower Circus, which showcases hilarious clown acts.
