The 2019 Blackpool Destination Guide showcasing the myriad of attractions in the UK’s most popular beach resort is now available.
The free 84-page guide puts special focus on the 125thanniversary celebrations of two of the resort’s most iconic heritage assets – The Blackpool Tower and The Grand Theatre.
To mark these historic milestones, the cover of the guide features an extraordinary photograph taken inside the world-famous Tower Ballroom when a giant replica moon was suspended above the celebrated ballroom floor.
The publication includes details of all of Blackpool’s major attractions and events, including Armed Forces Week (June 24-30); Blackpool Air Show (August 10 and 11); Ride The Lights (August 27); Blackpool Illuminations Switch-On (August 30); World Fireworks (September 6, 13, 20 and 27); and Nickelodeon SLIMEFEST (October 19, 20 and 21).
It also features information on a wide selection of hotels and accommodation, restaurants and night-time attractions, and an expansive programme of shows and live entertainment, as well as tips on how visitors can get the best of all that Blackpool has to offer.
There is also useful information on transport links, accessibility and the Blackpool Resort Pass which gives heavily discounted access to the resort’s major attractions.
New inclusions for 2019 are:
- The opening of The Boulevard, a stylish new seafront hotel, bar and restaurant at Blackpool Pleasure Beach

The 2019 Blackpool Destination Guide reflects the huge range of visitor attractions which make Blackpool such a compelling destination for families.
