Have some spare time whilst you're visiting Blackpool? Here are Visit Blackpool's must-see attrractions:

Daredevil Delights

Thrill-seekers can brave the white-knuckle rides of the Pleasure Beach, from the iconic Big One to the more traditional Grand National.

If splashing around is more your scene, visit Sandcastle Waterpark, where you can slip and slide through the world’s longest indoor rollercoaster waterslide, the Master Blaster.

Tower Treats

With its 4D cinema and breathtaking Skywalk, the Blackpool Tower Eye is an awe-inspiring trip down memory lane. Visitors will enjoy an entertaining exploration of the town’s history, coupled with exhilarating views from the floor-to-ceiling glass observation windows.

From 380 feet above the Promenade, you can descend into the depths of the Blackpool Tower Dungeon, where expert performers will regale you with their very own horrible histories of plague and torture.

And don’t forget Blackpool Tower Circus, with everyone’s favourite clowns, Mooky and Mr Boo. Or the iconic Tower Ballroom, where many couples have enjoyed a waltz or tango in truly magnificent surroundings.

Creature Capers

Animal-lovers can head to Blackpool Zoo for a day of family-friendly fun. There are more than 1,000 mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates to see across 32 acres of spacious natural enclosures, with plenty of space for kids to run wild too.

You can also take a trip to the depths of the ocean at Sea Life Blackpool, where you can marvel at sharks, rays, jellyfish, seahorses and dozens of different fish.
