You'll find a wide variety of things to see and do including heritage and historical landmarks alongside fun rides that operate all year long. Take a look at the 10 best things to do in Blackpool in winter.

    • Fotomälestused

    Blackpool Tower is a massive structure inspired by the Eiffel Tower that offers brilliant views of the city accompanied by an entertainment complex. This tower reaches 518 feet in height, so you can easily find it simply by looking up from virtually anywhere in town. The Blackpool Tower Eye, which is the observation area, is 380 feet up, so it's technically not possible to view the surrounding area from the highest point of the tower. Fortunately, though, you can take a lift up so you don't have to worry about countless stairs.

    See North Pier's most iconic attraction

    • Kahekesi
    • Kõigile vanuseastmetele

    Conveniently located on the North Pier, the Venetian Carousel is an impressive carousel with horses and carriages that adults and kids alike can enjoy. This Italian-made carousel is a double-deck galloper model with intricately designed horses to ride. This carousel is relatively new compared to the Blackpool piers themselves, as it was opened in 1991 and has been continuously operating since. Instead of offering insight into times long past, as the piers themselves do, this carousel may offer nostalgia to travellers who were young during the '90s.
