Blackpool is a resort on the Lancashire coast. Its reputation as a fun-loving, partying place has survived the growth in overseas travel. The Illuminations in the city centre in autumn attract many visitors, especially on coach trips, but there is something for everyone all year round. The city has many bars, clubs, restaurants and live entertainment venues, and hotels themselves often have live entertainment on tap. Children will enjoy the zoo and sealife centre while the whole family will find fun at the Pleasure Beach, Sandcastles Water Park and the Tower. Accommodation comes in all types, sizes and prices. There are large, modern hotels such as Big Blue, Raffles and Hilton, mid range such as Claremont, Lyndene and Doric, while the imposing Grand Metropole is a reminder of Victorian times. However, Blackpool is best known for its host of good value budget hotels, B&Bs, guesthouses and rooms and, away from the city centre, caravan sites. Whether visitors are booking for a summer holiday, weekend break, group or stag outing, Blackpool will be able to offer accommodation deals.
