From the top hotels to cozy vacation rentals, here are the best places to stay in Blackpool, UK.
Blackpool is a seaside resort on the Lancashire coast in North West England. It has been famous since the 18th-century when people started to realize that a vacation on the seaside was good for both physical and mental health. Blackpool has not lost its popularity since then and is one of the major centers of tourism in England, attracting millions of tourists every year. Blackpool is made of sandy beaches but that’s not the only reason why the city is so loved: the Blackpool Tower and Illuminations, the naughty Pleasure Beach, the zoo and the Winter Gardens are only some of the extras. It is a great city to visit in the summer and a great choice for a vacation. Now, just a small detail: where should you stay in Blackpool? Here are some great suggestions:
This unique hotel will offer an exciting experience to the real football fans: it is located within Blackpool FC’s Bloomfield Road stadium and has rooms with pitch-side views! How awesome is that? If you thought it couldn’t get any better, you were wrong! The hotel also has a gym, fitness classes available, free Wi-Fi and free parking. Each room is equipped with a contemporary en-suite bathroom, and a flat-screen TV but only some of the rooms have views of the Bloomfield Road’s pitch so try to book in advance in order to get the best one!
