Blackpool is one of the most unique places in the north of England and is more closely likened to the vibrant city of Las Vegas than to a typical UK coastal town. With its bright lights and lively atmosphere it's a place to have fun, and with an abundance of bars, restaurants and clubs, it's one of the top party destinations in the country.

If you're visiting Blackpool, then you have to visit one of its greatest and most renowned attractions, Blackpool Tower. You can ride all the way to the top and see the incredible views over the city and coast. There's also the magnificent ballroom to wonder at, as well as the Tower Circus, which will certainly keep the kids entertained.

With its own tram network you can visit Blackpool's north, central and south piers which are crammed with penny slot machines, fortune tellers and of course candy floss and Blackpool rock. If you're lucky enough to see the sun, then take a walk along the miles of Blackpool's famous, unspoiled sandy beaches and if you want to swap the bright lights of London for the brighter lights of Blackpool, then an ideal time to visit would be in the autumn, when the promenade is illuminated with over a million bulbs in preparation for Christmas.

Looking for thrills and excitement? Head down to the Pleasure Beach, which has over 125 adrenaline-fuelled rides, among which, is a famous and highly recommended rollercoast known as the Big One. You could also take the family to visit Madam Tussauds, the Sandcastle Waterpark or Blackpool's Sea Life Centre, where you can get a closer look at marine life including sharks. Or, if you don't mind a bus journey, you could visit Blackpool Zoo, which houses over 1,000 different types of animals.

Blackpool is only a cheap six hour coach ride away from London, so there's nothing stopping you from heading off for a weekend away or a mini break. Check out the availability of tickets, prices and departure times now.
