Why You Should Visit Blackpool This Autumn | Events & Attractions

Living in Manchester, Blackpool is my nearest beach. During the summer months, this seaside town is the place where everyone ends up on their days off.

Once the summer ends, however, most people prefer to stay in Manchester, giving the beach a miss. Personally, however, I think that the Autumn is the perfect time to visit Blackpool. Not only have the crowds subsided, so you don’t have to wait in line for hours to get on the rides, but you can also get some great discounts, as well.
Still not convinced to visit Blackpool this Autumn? No - then make sure to keep reading, for all the reasons why you should plan a visit.

Have fun on the theme park rides
If you want to have some fun on your day off, taking a day trip to Blackpool is ideal, as there is plenty to see and do. From Blackpool attractions like Blackpool’s famous Pleasure Beach, to shows and other events, you’ll have lots to choose from.

If you are a fan of rides and rollercoasters, Blackpool Pleasure Beach is the perfect place to go to have fun with your friends. Plus, by going out of season, you won’t have to worry about queuing for hours.

There’s lots to see and do at Blackpool Tower
Built in 1984, Blackpool Tower is the town’s most famous features. If you have never seen it, this is a great reason to visit the seaside town. Not just a tower, this venue has a ballroom, shows on throughout the year, a dungeon that you can explore, and so much more.
As well as all the activities on offer here, there is also a fantastic restaurant, The Blackpool Tower Burger Kitchen. Although they only serve burgers and chips, this is the ideal place to grab a snack after seeing a show.

You can visit Madame Tussauds
The main wax museum might be in London, but Blackpool also has its own mini version. If you fancy posing with models of some of the most famous people in the world, this is the perfect place to visit.

During the colder months, you may find that the prices, to get into venues like Madame Tussauds, are much cheaper than during the summer. So you can save yourself a little bit of money while still having an amazing time.

You can go to the zoo
If you are an animal lover, why not treat yourself to seeing all of your favourite animals at Blackpool Zoo? With over 1500 animals, including lions, tigers, birds, and reptiles, there are plenty of animals to see here.

This is ideal for when the weather is a little too cold to be on the beach, as many of the attractions are inside. So you can stay warm while having a great time.

Get an ice cream
Even during the Autumn and winter, no trip to the beach is complete without an ice cream. There are lots of cafes and shops selling all types and flavours of ice cream in Blackpool, but one of the best is Notarianni Ice Cream.

This ice cream parlour is run by an Italian family and has been in the same place for over 70 years. All the ice cream is homemade on the premises and is absolutely delicious. So if you fancy an ice cream, this is the place to go.

And of course you can not forget about the famous illuminations!
