During the summer holidays, we decided to go on another short UK break before we headed on our big summer holiday to Cyprus. You can read all about our travels in the UK here.
Blackpool is somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit again after a trip when I was about nine or ten. I loved it there and I couldn’t wait to take the kids there to see what it had to offer.
Once again we opted for a Premier Inn. They just can’t be beaten when it comes to price and comfort. We had a few meals there – breakfast and a dinner. The food was okay, not the greatest of quality but that isn’t a reflection on Premier Inn but rather the restaurant attached.
Unfortunately the traffic was awful and it meant we got to Blackpool quite late. We had a gifted visit to Coral Island so we dropped our stuff off at the hotel straight away and headed off. I’ve popped some pictures below but you can read all about our visit here.
I remember visiting Blackpool Tower when I was younger and I always wanted to go and stand on the glass floor. However when I went as a child, it was far too windy and I missed out. I wasn’t planning on missing out again!
There are different things available to do at the Blackpool Tower but we only managed to visit the Blackpool Tower Eye. I definitely want to head back and visit the ballroom and the circus – I remember the circus from when I was younger and it was incredible.
Would it be a trip to Blackpool without visiting the beach? The Golden Mile is amazing and the kids loved walking through the sand and splashing in the sea.
Blackpool is amazing for attractions and Madame Tussauds on the seafront is one of them. It had been many, many years since I had last visited a Madame Tussauds and it was amazing to go in with the kids. Jack especially loved the Marvel section and I loved that they have a Strictly section, complete with glitter ball!
We spent ages in Madame Tussauds and even had a drink in their special Rovers Return bar – the drinks in there are very affordable! This was such a nice touch and a great addition to the Blackpool attraction.
