Of course, you do not want to arrive in Blackpool to find that all of the attractions are closed!
Blackpool’s season starts Mid-March, climaxing from July until November. Most attractions are open from mid-March, including Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Some attractions are open all year, for example, Blackpool Zoo. It is always best to check opening times and admission prices with each attraction before you book.
Most visitors come to Blackpool when the schools are closed for holidays, as Blackpool is family orientated. The busiest periods are Bank Holidays and September until November. This is due to the Illuminations which are switched on at dusk and shine until around midnight. See the Illuminations in November, preferably after it has been raining. The lights shine off the ground and a fabulous picture of this can be taken from the end of North Pier!
It is worth bearing in mind that many (not all) hoteliers have a minimum 2-night stay at busy periods.
As far as packing is concerned, recommend packing a light jacket, even in the middle of summer as the weather can change quickly. An absolute must is sun cream. Although Blackpool is not famous for being hot, children can easily get burnt and you won’t want anything to spoil your holiday!
