“The Best Free Show in the country!”

Blackpool Illuminations
Ranked #13 of 85 things to do in Blackpool
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 5, 2014

I love the Illuminations, and I love how it is such an institution and a part of Blackpool's fabric. Every night of the illuminations is a show night, whether it's blowing a gale or raining hard, and all the stops are put out to make sure the show continues. Every year i am amazed by the amount of work that goes into the illuminations. A beautiful, beautiful service to the people.

After decades,I returned to Blackpool to visit the illuminations.MAGIC!.It being the 50th anniversary of Dr.Who on the BBC,it was a fair bet the fantastic illuminations would include the Sci-fi show in some way,and it did.Even the familiar blue police box suspended in mid air.WOW!.The lights were utterly excellent.

Enjoy every year, always better than I expect! Great for families with small children and teenagers. Great atmosphere at weekends but can get very busy!!

The annual pilgrimage to see the ever more technical displays continue and the illuminations are still the draw that they always were.
