Popular places you can visit in Blackpool Promenade


One of the prime summer destinations for the residents of the British North West is Blackpool Promenade. The picturesque sea beach, the perfectly soothing weather, and the popular shopping arcades are reasons for people to prefer this location to many others for their short city breaks. Quite naturally, holiday apartments in this area are always in high demand. It is advisable that you book early if you have a plan to visit the place.

A walk-on the promenade is one of the most popular activities among the tourists who visit the area. The promenade is the pedestrian area which is located by the beachfront. To attract tourists, there is no dearth of amusement activities either.    Blackpool promenade can be divided into 3 primary segments- The North Shore, the Central Shore, and the South Shore.

  • The North Shore

This is the oldest of the three which has managed to keep its old layout with the flavour of the past still lingering. Various entertainment destinations are located near the North Pier which includes the theatre, the Merry England bar, the sun pavilion, and the classic-style carousel. This part is the closest to Blackpool’s main train station, thus most tourists start their journey from here.

  • The Central Shore

This is home to Blackpool’s most famous landmarks, some of which are the Blackpool tower, the Ferris wheel, and the Pirate Bay bar. The Blackpool Tower is architecturally inspired by the Eiffel Tower. The Blackpool Tower Eye is the highest observation deck in North West England.

  • The South Shore

This shore is the farthest from the city-centre. There are funfair rides, the World’s Biggest Mirror Ball and the wave-powered pipe organ, which are all popular tourist spots.
